You can easily switch to a different version of PHP from the one.com control panel. There you can choose from PHP versions currently supported by PHP.net.
A PHP version generally has a lifecycle of three years, after which it should no longer be used. For more information on why it is essential to update your PHP, check our guide: Why do I need to update PHP?
- Log in to your one.com control panel.
- Scroll down to the Advanced settings tile and select PHP and database settings.
- Scroll down to Update PHP version.
- Select the PHP version you want to switch to and click Update.
Note: Keep in mind that it takes 20 minutes before the update is in effect. If you have a website with a lot of visitors it can take even longer. We recommend checking your site a couple of times during the next 24 hours.
