How to change the version of php?

Ex2's latest servers give you the possibility to choose your PHP version (5.3 - 5.4 - 5.5 - 5.6 - 7.0 - 7.1 et 7.2) that you want to use. It can be useful for third party applications, because sometimes they use a specific PHP version and they aren't compatible with the latest version of PHP.

For compatibily and security purposes, you can only use 1 version of PHP per client.

This functionality is available for everyone with a shared hosting plan. If you have a dedicated hosting plan and you want to use a PHP version that isn't offered on our cPanel, contact the support.

Steps to change you PHP version.

Connect to your cPanel interface "" or by going through your client area.

In the software section, click on the button "Select PHP version".

In the PHP Selector section, using the dropdown list, select the PHP version that you want to use. You can also modify the extensions by default.

Click on the button Set as current to save your php configuration than click on "save".

If you want to verify your modifications, you can click on "server information" button which is located in the home page of cPanel.
