How To Change The PHP Version of Your Website

You can change the PHP version of your website in a few simple steps via your WPX Hosting Panel.

Access your Hosting Panel by logging in to your WPX Hosting account, then go to My Services (1) → Scroll Down (2) → Service Management (3), as seen below:

After following these steps, you will be taken directly to the Service Details section of your WPX Hosting Panel.

In the left menu, choose the Websites/SSL (4) tab. This will take you to a menu where you can manage your websites.

To the right of each website name, you’ll see the Settings (5) option. After clicking on Settings, a pop-up menu will open and here you can change the PHP version of the selected website, as seen in the screenshot below:

In this pop-up menu, select the second tab labelled PHP (6). Inside, you’ll be able to choose among five PHP versions – 7.2 7.3, 7.4 the latest 8.0.

All you have to do is choose your desired PHP version (7) and click Save Changes. That’s it!
