    Hi Binil,

    Just wanted to update the php version to 7.4 but when I go to cpannel – php selector it shows…

    PHP Selector is not available. Please, contact your hoster.

    Is there another way to update my php version?

    Thank you

    Try the “MultiPHP Manager”

    Hi Binil,

    Thanks for the tip, went there to change from pho 7.2 to 7.4 but couldn’t. The apply button is disable and the message on there is.

    System PHP Version
    The system default PHP version is set by the system administrator.
    Any domain that is set to the inherit value indicates that it does not have its own PHP version explicitly set. Read more about inherit.

    Maybe you can change something on your side? Let me know if there is a solution.

    Hey Binil,

    Thanks for trying to help but when I went to the website it says now:

    Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress.

    When going to the cpannel multi php it says the current php is 5.4… not 7.4 So now is outdated. Can you try again putting the 7.4 please when you have time

    When downgrading to to 5.4 or 5.5 it shows – Your server is running PHP version 5.4.45 but WordPress 5.7.2 requires at least 5.6.20.

    So I have used 5.6 for you – it should be working.

    Also please note that MySQL extension was removed as of PHP 7.0. So you’re seeing this error, it could be due to old code that needs to be updated. You will need to upgrade the core WordPress files to the current version, as well as any plugins your site is using. So after upgrading everything we could try out 7.4

    But I was on 7.2 that is why I wanted to upgrade to 7.4

    Now on the wordpress I have 5.6.40. You are saying I have to update on the wordpress files first and just then upgrade to 7.4?

    You could not do that directly from multi php 7.2 -> 7.4

    Sorry to ask that because previously any upgrade on the php was just from the cpannel done from what I know

    If is complicated to put on 7.4 maybe you can put again how it was 7.2. Because now in the current version 5.6.40 even wordpress is giving me messages on the dashboard that the php version is even older

    Let me know which one is the best solution 🙂 Thank you always for your help Binil and sorry for the trouble here

    Message displayed on the wordpress as well

    PHP Update Recommended

    Your site is running an insecure version of PHP (5.6.40), which should be updated.

    What is PHP and how does it affect my site?
    PHP is the programming language used to build and maintain WordPress. Newer versions of PHP are created with increased performance in mind, so you may see a positive effect on your site’s performance. The minimum recommended version of PHP is 7.4.

    Hey @binil you tried? Is it possible to upgrade to 7.4 or put back to 7.2

    Sorry, I haven’t. I am in a bit of a bother – I will only do this if I am able to spend some time with your site, I don’t want it to go down in case I messed up.
