How to change PHP versions in Nexcess Cloud

    August 24, 2020

    How Nexcess Cloud clients can change PHP versions from their Client Portal at will.

    But first...

    Our Cloud dashboard allows you to change your PHP version as needed. All PHP applications and commands run from this account will use this version of PHP.

    ATTENTION: Before changing versions, verify the compatibility of your applications, or the changes may adversely affect your security and performance.


    Attention: This method only works for Nexcess Cloud clients. If your account uses a non-Cloud hosting environment, instead see How to change PHP versions in SiteWorx.

    1. Log in to the Client Portal. From the home page, click Plans.
    2. Locate your Cloud account. Either click its domain name, or select Plan Dashboard from the nearby menu toggle.
    3. From the main menu, select Environment
    4. In the PHP drop-down menu, select your desired version.
    5. Read and understand the warning, then click Confirm Version Change when ready. 

    For 24-hour assistance any day of the year, contact our support team by email or through your Client Portal.
