To change the version of PHP you’ll first navigate to cPanel 3. From there you’ll scroll down to the ‘Software’ section. Click the ‘MultiPHP Manager’
You’ll be brought to a new screen with a list of all your sites. Click the checkbox of the specific site you’d like to modify. Click the Drop-Down Menu to switch the PHP version you’d like.
You’ll want to switch over to the ea-PHP version. You can switch up to ea-PHP 7.0. When you’ve selected the version you’d want to use, click ‘Apply.’
And that’s it!
Occasionally, the PHP version you switch to is not compatible and you’ll see a white screen on your site. Don’t worry! You didn’t break your site, this can easily be fixed, you can switch around the version until your sites load again. Follow the process above to switch your site to another version. Often times the alt-php is the culprit here and switching to the ea-php version can solve this.
