My Status report says my PHP version is 5.6. When I check the phpinfo on Backdrop it also says PHP Version 5.6.40
On my reseller hosting I have set the domain to have PHP7.4. It allows me to set the Domain name, but not the "Home Directory".
The PHP.INI file in both public_html (plus a copy one level higher) has the following.
display_errors = Off
max_execution_time = 60
max_input_time = 60
max_input_vars = 1000
memory_limit = 256M
post_max_size = 8M
session.gc_maxlifetime = 1440
session.save_path = "/var/cpanel/php/sessions/ea-php74"
upload_max_filesize = 5M
zlib.output_compression = Off
extension_dir = "ext"
Is there any OTHER way I can set the PHP version. I have also asked the service provider. But I do have some D7 sites stuck on 7.0. (not sure why, but they stop working if it's set higher)/
