PHP, short for Hypertext Preprocessor, is an open-source server-side scripting language.
Most websites run on PHP—the scripting language forms the core of WordPress, one of the world’s most widely-used content management systems, and also runs Facebook, the world’s largest social media network.
Yahoo! And Wikipedia are other popular PHP projects.
Its versatility, ease of use, security, cost efficiency, and cross-platform compatibility makes it widely used for web and app developments. Updating your PHP sites to the latest version lets you enjoy up-to-date features and the newest security and vulnerabilities fixes, and thankfully, Scala Hosting makes this intuitive.
We let users set their preferred PHP versions for each of their websites in a few simple steps.
So, let’s get to it.
Step 1: Sign in to Your SPanel Account
Go to your SPanel account — Scala Hosting all-in-one control panel, by visiting www.domain.com/spanel/login, then enter your email (or username) and password to log in.
Of course, don’t forget to replace domain.com with your domain name.
When you sign in with an admin username and password, Spanel takes you to your admin dashboard but logs you directly into your account’s control panel if you use user access.
The control panel lets you change your PHP version and run other administrative tasks.
Step 2: Choose your Account
Now, to access your account’s control panel from the admin dashboard, scroll to the QUICK LINKS section and click List Accounts.
Go to the account you wish to log in to its control panel, then click Actions > Login to gain access.
Step 3: Open PHP Manager
Scroll to the TOOLS section at the end of your control panel dashboard, and click PHP manager.
Kindly locate the domain or subdomain you wish to update its PHP version and click the Change button.
Select your preferred PHP version from the drop-down and click the Change button. We recommend updating to the latest version.
It takes SPanel less than ten seconds to update to the version. Exit the control panel when completed and enjoy your new PHP versions.
