Selecting PHP Versions and PHP Modules | Extensions in CPanel

We do our best to keep the default settings for our accounts standard so that the most common scripts work without PHP, using too many RAM loaders that you don’t need. There are times when you need to include additional modules, such as the PHP ZIP extension. This article will describe in detail the process of changing both versions of PHP and PHP modules.
Choosing the version of PHP used in your account, as well as the available PHP extensions, is a simple process that can be done directly from cPanel.

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. Click “Choose PHP Version” in the “Software” section.
  3. At the top of this page you will see “Current version of PHP:”. To change the version of PHP that your account uses, select the new version from the drop-down selection list and click Set as Current.
  4. The middle of this page lists the modules that are enabled or disabled. You can enable any modules you want by checking the appropriate boxes and clicking the “Save” button at the bottom of the page.

If you change the PHP version at the top and click the “Save” button at the bottom – the PHP version will not change / will not be saved. Conversely, if you change PHP modules by checking and unchecking boxes and you hit Mouth as the top on the PHP module the settings will not be saved / changed.

When you click “Set as current” at the top or “Save” at the bottom, make sure your settings are saved when you reload the page.
