If you have an InMotion Hosting account then you can go into cPanel and change the PHP version. If you are using a VPS or Dedicated server account where this option is not available, then please notify our live tech support team and they can add it into your account for you.

False. I've tried this and I'm getting a 500 error when I try to access the setup page. When I contacted tech support they told me it's probably not compatible so I don't understand why this page even exists if Magento won't run on your server.

Apologies for the problem with the Magento installation. After looking into the matter, we found that the 500 error is probably due to some folder permission settings. Check out this link for the proper settings that you can modify in the Softaculous settings. Uninstall the current installation with Softaculous then try re-installing once more the settings in place. If the error persists, please let us know.
