When will PHP version 7 be available as a choice in my cPanel?

  • Answered
Currently, from the "PHP Configuration" section of my cPanel I can select PHP versions 5.2-5.6. This is great. However, now that PHP 7 has reached official release status on December 3rd 2015, when can we expect to see it added to the list of available choices? I am personally looking forward to its better memory management, faster runtimes and newer language features.

Thank you for your question on when PHP 7 will be available. Our Systems team is still doing some testing as to compatibility on the servers. They like to give customers as many options as possible, so backwards compatibility with the server environment is required is also required for older PHP versions. We do not have a specific ETA but they are looking forward to releasing it as an option as soon as possible.

Kindest Regards,
