    I'm trying to change php version from 5.6.40 to 7.2 on xo5 server.
    I go to CPanel -> Select PHP Version -> Select 7.2 -> Set as current , but when I check Server Information it continuous to say 5.6.40. Any ideas?

    When I use phpinfo() function it actually says its 7.2.xx, seems like the Server Information is wrong or something.
    But when I try to install a app with Softaculous Apps Installer it says: Required PHP version greater than equal to 7.1.0 AND found version is : 5.6.40

    have you tried making sure your using the paper_lantern theme ?
    (not basic)

    also note many people reported issues with the softalicious installer
    (adding apps from cpanel in general)

    im also on the xo5 server but i never tried going to a higher php version as everything is fine for me (i use php 5.4)
    never had a reason for going to higher versions.

    i never believed in updating just because they say i should.

    Yes i'm using the paper_lantern theme.

    I was trying to install Monsta web ftp with the softalicious installer but seems like it still asks for "Required PHP version greater than equal to 7.1.0".

    I will just download the files manually if possible.

    you could just use your default ftp options in cpanel.
    you should not need another ftp script to access your website.
    allowing others to ftp into your account may or may not be
    a violation of x10hostings terms or acceptable use policy.
    resulting in suspension of your account.

    Yes that's what i'm using at the moment, but I always have to go to cpanel blablabla.
    With this I could just put it like ftp.example.com or something else.
    All for only my use, I guess that does not violate anything?

    I was just laying it out there its up to you what you use.
    i just know id find it best personally to use cpanel,
    at least that way you also log in to prevent suspension.
    since youd always log in to, using a separate ftp script,
    could make it easy to forget the need to properly login.

    You are totally right, that makes sense.
    I will just keep using the cpanel.

    Thank you for your suggestions!
