Websites hosted at 10Web have many Hosting Tools made easily available for use with just a click. Two such cases are Restarting PHP engine and changing the PHP Engine Version of your website.
How to Restart the PHP Engine
In the rare case that the PHP of your site has crashed, or you have some 502 bad gateway errors, or your site is slow and is having connectivity issues, you may want to restart the PHP of your website.
Log into your 10Web dashboard and click on the website you want to manage. To the left of your dashboard under Hosting Services, click on Tools.
In the Restart PHP box, click on the Restart PHP button.
Note: Make sure to clear your Cache to see the changes.
How to Change the PHP Engine Version
Older PHP Engine Versions move toward the end of their life cycle and are not supported two years after their release. We recommend using the latest version for speed and support. To change your PHP Engine Version go to the website you would like to manage, then to Tools, located under Hosting Services.
In the PHP Engine box, locate the drop down menu. Choose the version you want to use. A pop up will show up, read and confirm by clicking the Switch to PHP 7.4(or your desired version) button.
You will get a notification at the bottom right of your screen when the process has completed.
