Changing Your cPanel PHP Version

If you would like to modify your php version for your website you can do so from within your Rochen cPanel account. 

You can use the following methods to log into your Rochen cPanel account: 

Visit the following URLs to access cPanel:

http://DOMAINNAME/cpanel or http://DOMAINNAME:2082

https://SERVERNAME.directrouter.com:2083 (all US based servers, UK PWH servers, and MCS)

https://SERVERNAME.directrouter.co.uk:2083 (UK legacy shared, legacy Reseller, and UK MVS servers)

Alternatively, you can access your cPanel via your account at https://my.rochen.com. Using the left sidebar option labeled “Manage Hosting”, click on your primary domain name. Once you’ve selected your primary domain name, you’ll be taken to a new page where you can view all of your sub accounts under this domain. Each information card for each sub account will have a location for cPanel password and it will say show / hide / reset. There is also a button that has the cPanel logo on it ( CP in orange text ) that you can click and be auto logged into your cPanel account. 

Once logged in you’ll need to navigate to the icon that says “select php version” 

Once you’re in the select PHP version icon, you’ll see at the top of the page that shows the current version you are on and a small arrow (This indicates it’s a drop-down). If you select this arrow you’ll see a list of available PHP versions to choose from. You can use the drop-down, select the PHP version, and then hit “Set”. This will change your existing PHP version.

In some cases when you change your PHP version your software may state that it’s not the version you selected. In cases like this it’s possible your .htaccess is overriding your PHP selection caused by a theme within your software. If this is happening to you, check out how to correct this by Clicking Here!
