We are pleased to announce that PHP 7 is now available to all Varial Hosting customers.
To start using PHP 7 simply log into your cPanel and click on the “Select PHP Version” icon located under the Software heading. Next, select PHP 7 and press the “Set as current” button. Finally, click the “Use Defaults” button to select our recommended PHP modules and then hit “Save”.
Note that not all web applications have been updated to be compatible with PHP 7 at this time.
We have also enabled CloudLinux’s Mod_lsapi across all servers on our legacy platform. Mod_lsapi is a drop-in replacement for suPHP and is a much faster way of serving PHP using Apache. This will give additional performance and stability improvements until all customers are migrated to our next generation hosting platform later this year.
If you are experiencing issues after the switch to Mod_lsapi please contact our Support department for assistance.
