Multi PHP Runtime FAQ

We offer a multi-PHP runtime environment where you can configure your individual sites to run specific PHP runtimes.

Which PHP runtimes are supported ?

We currently support PHP 5.6 and PHP 7.0. Read all about the awesome benefits that PHP 7 introduced here.

Is there a default PHP runtime ?

We use PHP 7.0 as the default PHP runtime. Every newly created WordPress site uses that version by default.

Can I change the PHP runtime of a site ?

Yes, you can change the PHP runtime of your site anytime you want,  from the Pressidium Portal.

Where can I see the current PHP runtime of my site ?

You can verify the current PHP runtime of your site from the Pressidium portal by doing the following:

  1. Click the Websites tab.
  2. Select your website by clicking on its name.
  3. Scroll down to the WordPress Management section.


You can see (and change) the current PHP runtime by selecting the version from the PHP Engine dropdown menu.

Can I set different a PHP runtime per site environment ?

Yes, you can use a different PHP runtime in each site environment. For example, you can configure your site's staging environment to run on PHP 7.0, while having your live one (production) on PHP5.6.
