Changing your PHP Version in cPanel

I am being told that I need the most recent version of PHP, which happens to be PHP 7.4. However, I cannot seem to find version 7.4 in cPanel anywhere. Where would I go about getting it?

Duplicates 2
WordPress is letting me know I can update PHP to 7.4, but I do not see that update on InMotion Hosting, only 7.3, which I already have. Any information?
WordPress PHP update required - how do I do this?

My dashboard suggested a PHP update.  I asked my web developer about this and he's said it is a hosting issue that will need to be resolved so nothing he can help with.  My IT Manager hasn't had to do this before, so nobody is offering advise on how to get it resolved.  How do I do this?

Hello Scott, 

Thank you for your question regarding PHP versions. If 7.4 is not visible in the PHP configuration menu, then it may not be available on your server. I recommend contacting our Technical Support team to see if 7.4 can be accessed:
