Webhosting – PHP configuration

  PHP, Settings, Web Hosting

In our control panel, you can set which PHP version will be your .php scripts executed with. You can choose between PHP 5.4 – 5.6, PHP 7.0 – 7.4, and PHP 8.0 – 8.1.

In addition, it is possible to execute some scripts by specific versions. Files with the extension .php74 are always executed with PHP 7.4. Files with the extension .php80 are executed by version 8.0 and so on.

  • .php54 – always PHP 5.4 (deprecated)
  • .php55 – always PHP 5.5 (deprecated)
  • .php56 – always PHP 5.6 (deprecated)
  • .php70 – always PHP 7.0 (deprecated)
  • .php71 – always PHP 7.1 (deprecated)
  • .php72 – always PHP 7.2 (deprecated)
  • .php73 – always PHP 7.3 (deprecated)
  • .php74 – always PHP 7.4
  • .php80 – always PHP 8.0
  • .php81 – always PHP 8.1 (recommended)

All versions are available for all web hostings at all servers. There is no need to ask us to activate or transfer to another server. All you need to do is to change the version in our customer service.

In addition, you can change the following parameters (in parenthesis is the default value):

  • allow_url_fopen (On)
  • allow_url_include (Off)
  • apc.enabled (On)
  • auto_append_file (Off)
  • auto_prepend_file (Off)
  • display_errors (On)
  • eaccelerator.enable (On)
  • html_errors (On)
  • ignore_repeated_errors (Off)
  • ignore_user_abort (Off)
  • implicit_flush (Off)
  • log_errors (Off)
  • magic_quotes_gpc (Off)
  • max_execution_time (90)
  • output_buffering (Off)
  • register_globals (Off) – v PHP 5.4 doesn’t exist
  • session.auto_start (Off)
  • session.cookie_httponly (Off)
  • session.cookie_secure (Off)
  • session.use_cookies (On)
  • session.use_only_cookies (On)

We do not allow to change other parameters or we do it exceptionally in justified cases (in this case you need to send a request via the contact form).
