Changing Php Version

What does changing the PHP version allow you to do?

Changing the PHP version allows you to specify PHP version for the root domain or any sub-domains, doing this allows you to run PHP applications that require an older or a newer PHP version. PHP 5.6 and PHP 7 are the most commonly used - these are listed as ea-php56 or ea-php70 in the MultiPHP Manager.

What's the default PHP Version?

We deploy each web hosting account with PHP 7.0 by default.
