How to Update PHP Version in GoDaddy (Managed WordPress Hosting)


Running an older version of PHP on your WordPress site? If you’re hosting with GoDaddy, I’ll show you how to update your PHP version using GoDaddy’s managed WordPress dashboard.

As of February 25, 2019, GoDaddy offers PHP 7.2, 7.1 and 7.0. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you use 7.2, and then switch to 7.3 as soon as it’s available.

Updating to PHP 7.2 will provide significant performance improvements, as well as keep your site secure.

In this video, I show you how to run some tests before updating, and then use GoDaddy’s control panel to update your PHP version.

NOTE: This is for “Managed WordPress Hosting” only. If you have cPanel hosting, or Linux hosting, these instructions do not apply.
