Category: Tutorials | Last modified: December 30, 2022

For speed and security, Pressable offers its customers the latest-and-greatest PHP versions. You can choose which version of PHP to enable from within the site’s my.pressable.com dashboard. Simply select the desired version from the PHP Version dropdown and the site will be updated immediately.

Please note: if you are updating the PHP version on a production website, we recommend that you clone your website and test your PHP update on the clone first to ensure no errors are seen. Follow our guide on how to clone your website to staging. Please reach out to our support team if you need assistance.

If you would like to set a default PHP version for all new sites created in your account, you can change the account-level PHP version.
