InMotion Hosting has servers many servers that have different versions of PHP for each. This is because each customer has their own version requirements for their website to work. In the event that you need a newer version of PHP on your server, you can upgrade if you are on a Dedicated or VPS server. If you are on a shared server, you can change the PHP version through cPanel (not available on all servers).

Switching the PHP version in cPanel

On many of our newer servers, you can switch the PHP version through your cPanel. To learn how to change the PHP version, see our article on "How to change the PHP version your account uses".

Upgrading on a VPS or Dedicated server

On VPS and Dedicated servers, you can upgrade the server PHP version through your WHM. For information on how to do this see our "302: Upgrade PHP using EasyApache" article.

If you cannot change the PHP version in cPanel

If you do not have a VPS or Dedicated server and you cannot change the PHP version in cPanel then you will need to contact tech support to have your account moved to a server with a newer version of PHP. Moving your account to another server will not have any downtime. The account move is done by our systems support so no action is required on your end.

When submitting a ticket for this, please let them know what version of PHP you need and verify the account with either the current AMP password, original cpanel password, or the last 4 digits of the credit card on file and our systems support will move you ASAP.
