PHP version via .htaccess

Support > Hosting > PHP settings

We have 3 different versions of PHP installed, which we recommend to use.

DThe different versions can be used simultaneously in the same web.
How to use for example PHP 5.6.x in your web, is described below.

1. Available php versions

PHP 5.6.x / 7.0.x / 7.1.x (all compiled with GD)

2. php applications

If you have several PHP applications (e.g. a CMS, forum, etc.) that should run on PHP 5.6.x / 7.0.x / 7.1.x, then you can realize this with one .htaccess file each.

3. create .htaccess

Create a file with the Notepad or a similar editor (in Windows: Start - Run - "notepad" - OK) with one of the following 3 lines:

#PHP 5.6
Action php /cgi-php56/php
AddHandler php56 .php

#PHP 7.0
Action php /cgi-php7/php
AddHandler php7 .php

#PHP 7.1
Action php /cgi-php71/php
AddHandler php71 .php

Save the file under «File - Save as». The file name would be «.htaccess», the file type would be «All files» and with the encoding ANSI.

4. File upload

Now load this .htaccess file into the directory where the .php files should be interpreted as PHP 5.6.x / 7.0.x / 7.1.x.
