PHP version 5.3 is the default version installed on our Linux Basic and Linux Pro subscriptions. If you wish to change this version, you can do so within the control panel in a few simple steps. Currently, both Linux Basic and Linux Pro Subscriptions support PHP versions 5.3.29 through 5.6.6.

This article assumes that you are already familiar with how to log in to the customer control panel. If you do not know how to log in or have forgotten your password, please refer to this article first.

  • On the control panel Home tab, click "Manage Website" under the Websites section.

  • Click on "Web Hosting Settings".

  • From the General tab, click the Edit button.
