How to change PHP version when you are using ‘pure nginx’ or have used ‘CloudNS’

If you want to benefit from our PHP-FPM / Nginx stack (for enhanced performance) then the standard ‘Select PHP Version’ screen in cPanel will not change your PHP version.

Login to cPanel
Go to the ‘CLOUDNS’ plugin
Select the domain you wish to change from the dropdown menu
Click ‘Configure’
Select ‘PHP’ from the dropdown list under the ‘Application Server’ section
Hit ‘Submit’
Select the relevant PHP version from the ‘Backend Version’ dropdown list
Select a ‘Template’ then hit ‘Submit’
