Hi there,

I'm wondering if it's possible / a good idea to upgrade to PHP7 in my shared server's root folder / system. I have an issue with Composer and locally I've fixed that by upgrading from PHP5.6 to 7.

If it's possible / a good idea, I'd like to know what would be the best way to perform the upgrade.

Thanks in advance! Bram

Hello,

You should be able to upgrade the PHP version by changing the handler of the PHP files as described in the documentation.

Provided that your application is compatible with PHP 7, this should not be an issue. If there is a problem with the PHP version, you can easily revert the changes by removing the handler from the .htaccess file

If you experience any issues with this, you can post a support ticket.
