Video: How to change PHP version for addon domain on Namecheap Shared Hosting with Apache webserver




Notes:
  1. This tutorial is valid for Namecheap Shared Hosting with Apache web server type.
  2. During the video, we share the following code that should be added to the '.htaccess' file content:

    <FilesMatch ".(?:html|php)$">
    SetHandler application/x-lsphpXX
    </FilesMatch>


    The XX in the code is the PHP version you wish to set. It can be any of these: 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 70, 71,72, or, 73.

  3. When a different PHP version is set for an addon domain, there are no PHP extensions enabled by default. You can run this command via SSH to ensure your website work correctly:

    cp /opt/alt/default_php_ini/phpXX.ini /home/cPanel_username/path_to_the_folder/php.ini

    • XX is the PHP version you wish to set (it can be 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 70, 71, 72 or 73)
    • cPanel_username should be replaced with your actual cPanel username
    • path_to_the_folder is a path to the folder of the addon domain
