Plesk provides full support for the PHP scripting language, including support for multiple PHP versions and handler types out of the box. This topic explains how PHP settings can be managed for domains and subdomains from the Control Panel.
CHOOSING THE PHP VERSION VIA CONTROL PANEL
Plesk supports multiple PHP versions out of the box. To choose the PHP version for your domain or subdomain, within your Hosting Control Panel, go to Websites & Domains > PHP Settings and select the desired PHP version from the menu.
CHOOSING THE PHP VERSION VIA .HTACCESS
The version of PHP being used can also be changed by adding the following line item in the .htaccess file of your site:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php[versionnumber] .php
e.g. AddHandler application/x-httpd-php82 .php
For a list of all available values, please refer to the Hosting Environment Parameters document, linked below.
