Changing PHP Version, Libraries, and Settings

Overview
We offer our customers the ability to change the PHP version and libraries available to files on their account, as well as their unique PHP settings. This allows all different kinds of web applications to be run on a single server without forcing specific versions of software on all customers, ignoring updates, or adding potentially incompatible libraries. This article will give a brief overview of how to use the system.

Procedure
1. To get started, click the "Select PHP Version" icon inside cPanel. It is under the "Software and Services" tab (pictured below).



2. Once you've entered the PHP Selector interface, you can select a number of options. The interface looks like this:



Section A: This area allows you to select the version of PHP you want to run. Clicking "Set as Current" makes the selected version the currently active version.
Section B: This area allows you to select the various libraries available to PHP under your hosting account. Once you have the desired libraries selected, clicking "Save" applies your changes.
Section C: This link takes you to the PHP settings page, where you can adjust various performance, security, and operation-related settings for PHP. That interface looks like this:



Section A: Like the first page, this area allows you to select the version of PHP you want to run. Clicking "Set as Current" makes the selected version the currently active version.
Section B: This area allows you to adjust the various PHP settings. These are the most commonly accessed PHP settings for most users - any options not listed here have to be administratively adjusted by a member of the TFDi Design staff.

Note: Be sure you are aware of the implications of any changes you make here - this article assumes that there is a particular, documented version of PHP and/or libraries that your website requires.
