Upgraded to WHMCS 8.0.1 and changed PHP to 7.4 (cpanel).

Now, health check shows:

Cron PHP Version Mismatch
Your environment appears to be running a different PHP version (7.3.22) for the System Cron than the currently loaded PHP version (7.4.10). This may cause issues running your System Cron.

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# php -i | grep "Loaded Configuration File"
Loaded Configuration File => /opt/cpanel/ea-php73/root/etc/php.ini
When enabled Nginx in EA4 too, all sites go down despite that experimental repository is installed, nginx installed and PHP-FPM enabled. Using Cloudflare on the sites too.

Greetings,

The PHP Version Mismatch indicates your cron may be using "php /path/to/file.php" as the format rather than specifying the PHP binary path itself, if you would like to use PHP73 while remaining on PHP74 as the global version, you can correct this by specifying the binary path to PHP similar to this:
Code:
/opt/cpanel/ea-php73/root/usr/bin/php /path/to/file.php
In regard to Nginx, what error(s) are seen when this is enabled?

Does the Nginx service successfully start after this has been enabled?

Are there any errors logged for the service at - /var/log/nginx?

Thanks!
