Changing PHP version

Support > Hosting > PHP settings

If you want to change the PHP version for a domain, follow these steps:

1. Log in

Log into My Panel (my.hoststar.ch).
(Log into My Panel)

2. Navigate

Click the «Hosting» menu item and then «Settings».

3. Select hosting

If you have different hosting packages with us, you must select the correct hosting in the selection box at the top.

4. Edit PHP

At the desired website for which you want to change the PHP version, click on the «arrow symbol» on the right, then on «PHP» and after on the button «PHP settings».

5. PHP settings

Here you can now choose for which directory you want to change the PHP version.

5.1 Change public_html

By default your website is located in the directory «/public_html». If you want to change the PHP version for this directory, please click on the arrow symbol on the right and then on the button «Change PHP version» below the information.

Currently, the «PHP versions» are installed on our servers, which you can see here in the picture.

Please note that the PHP versions 5.6, as well as 7.1 have already reached their «end of life» and can therefore only be offered for a limited time (until about the end of 2020).

Now select the PHP version you want to use and click on «Save».

5.2 Add PHP path

If, on the other hand, you only want to adapt the PHP version for a subfolder, please click on the «Add PHP path» button below.

Also here you will be shown the «PHP versions» currently installed on our servers (the same as in point 5.1). Please note that the PHP versions 5.6, as well as 7.1 and can therefore only be offered for a limited time (until about the end of 2020).

Choose the PHP version you want to use. If you decide on an existing path, click on it to select it. Or add a new path by inserting the path accordingly, click on the button «Add folder» and also select it from the immediately updated list with one click.

Then click on «Add».

6. Successfully changed

You will automatically be redirected to the settings overview page, the successful changes will be indicated with a «green success message» and the newly selected PHP versions will be active after a few seconds.
