You can change the PHP version of your website in a few simple steps via your Hosting Panel.
Access your Hosting Panel by loggin in to your WPX Hosting account, then go to My Services (1) → WordPress Hosting → Manage All Sites In This Account (2), as seen below:
After following these steps, you will be taken directly to the Service Details section of your Hosting Panel.
In the left menu, choose the Websites/SSL (1) tab. This will take you to a menu where you can manage your websites.
To the right of each website name, you'll see the Settings (2) option. After clicking on Settings, a pop-up menu will open and here you can change the PHP version of the selected website, as seen in the screenshot below:
In this pop-up menu, select the second tab labelled PHP (3). Inside, you'll be able to choose among five PHP versions - 5.3 , 5.4 , 5.6, 7.0, and the latest 7.1.
All you have to do is choose your desired PHP version (4) and click Save Changes. That's it!
