    Hello,

    I have a hosting server with nearly 50 accounts. The PHP version of the server is PHP 5.3.29. One of my users needs php version upgrade to min 5.5.9. Is there an option to upgrade php version for a single account (because if i do it generally, other customers will be affected)?
    If there is, is there any step-by-step documentation or tutorial, or someone can give me directions of doing it?
    Server is running on CentOS, cpanel version is 11.66.0.17, and i am still using Easy Apache 3.

    Thank you in advance,

    M

    Easy Apache 4 lets you apply different versions of PHP to different accounts - it's a great option.

    Hello,

    It's possible with the MultiPHP functionality EasyApache 4:

    EasyApache 4 Home - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

    However, you will not have support for legacy PHP versions (e.g. PHP 5.3) in EasyApache 4. You'd need to use CloudLinux with PHP Selector for support for both legacy PHP versions and per-account PHP versions.

    Thank you.

    Ok, thank you for answering. Will the action of installing EA4 will be seamless, and are there some things related that need to be changed as well? And if something goes wrong, is there any rollback scenario (it is physical server)?

    Typically, the only issues you are likely to face will relate to the change in PHP versions. For instance, you may need to update any scripts that rely on legacy PHP functions no longer available in newer PHP versions. Also, yes, it's possible to revert back to EasyApache 3 with the instructions documented at:

    Thank you.
