Adjusting PHP settings

There are many circumstances where you might need to run a different version of PHP. Versions can be set on a per domain or folder basis.

Changing the PHP version

  1. Login to cPanel
  2. Navigate to MultiPHP Manager
  3. Select the relevant domain on the list using the checkboxes on the left side of cPanel (multiple selections can be made)
  4. In the PHP Version dropdown on the right-hand side, set the version you require — for ex., php 7 is listed as ea-php7
  5. Select apply

All set! That domain will now use the desired PHP version. If you run into any issues, contact Fused

Performance & Security

In most cases, running the latest version of PHP will result in the highest performance & security available. Unless you know you explicitly require an earlier version, we recommend running 7.2+

Changing PHP settings

To adjust your php settings, you have two options available. You can edit your php.ini files directly (in any folder) via shell, sftp or ssh, or you can manage your PHP settings via cPanel.

Managing your PHP settings via cpanel

  1. Login to cPanel
  2. Navigate to the MultiPHP INI Editor
  3. Select the relevant domain in the dropdown list.
  4. In Basic Mode, you're afforded a number of options like memory settings. If you'd prefer to swap over to an advanced mode, select Editor Mode.
  5. Populate the settings as needed and select apply (Or, save, for the Editor Mode).

Stick with basic

Unless you're familiar with adjusting a php.ini file by hand, stick with the basic options. Remember to always test your site(s) after making changes to ensure there are no errors.
