What is PHP Selector?

PHP Selector is a feature of CloudLinux which allows each account to select the PHP Version that they desire to use for their website. We offer many PHP versions (7.2, 7.1, 7.0, 5.6, 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2, 5.1 and 4.4), along with allowing accounts to select their PHP modules.

PHP Selector enables you to have your websites running on different versions of PHP while still on the same server.

The administrator can use PHP Selector to test versions of PHP for compatibility issues with their website, and roll back to a compatible version if there are any issues.
