At GoogieHost you get multi PHP support for free. This tutorial shows how GoogieHost shared hosting customers can change the PHP version of their installation. PHP version change can be needed in cases where a script, a programming language or a protocol demands for a specific version for proper functioning.

We will be using PHP Selector functionality of the cPanel for this purpose.

Step 1:

Open a web browser and login to the cPanel of your hosting account.

Step 2:

Under the Software section, click on Select PHP Version option. This will open a new page.
