How to change PHP versions in Nexcess Cloud

How to change PHP versions in Nexcess Cloud

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 Services > Cloud Accounts.
  2. Locate your Cloud account. Either click its name, or select Account 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 the Client Portal.
