When the switch occurs, what PHP version will existing accounts be defaulted to - 5.4, 5.5, 5.6 or 7.0?

If 7.0, is there something I can do to set things before the switch to ensure a prior version is used?

I ask because I know for a fact many of the scripts I use are not PHP 7.0 compatible. They are 5.6 compatible though.

Just a wild guess now, but I would think 5.4.

I'm currently at 5.4 and request, in the strongest possible terms, that this not change after the switch. I am willing to explore working my way to higher versions, but at my own step-by-step pace to test my scripts at each level. I assume this is what the MultiPHP Manager will allow?

The default version will be 5.6. 
 
If you have currently selected 5.4, this will not be changed. 
 
The default to 5.6 will only affect customers on 5.3. 
 
Also, effective after the change: PHP can be set per domain or sub-domain via the cPanel MultiPHP Manager
 
This means- PHP Can no longer be set per directory via cPanel but you can do so manually in any directory.

Thanks, Billy.

 

I have a couple of clients with really old scripts that even had to be patched when we moved to 5.4. Setting the version per domain will be a nice feature. I don't think I'll need by-directory.
