Linux Hosting (cPanel) Help

End PHP processes in my Linux Hosting account

You may need to end PHP processes in your Linux Hosting account - for example, to manage runaway scripts or get a PHP initialization file to take effect.

Note: Ending a process kills all current connections to the process. Any users connected to the process will have to reconnect.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, select Manage.
    select manage
  3. In the account Dashboard, select cPanel Admin.
  4. In the cPanel Home page, in the Software section, select Select PHP Version.
  5. Below PHP Selector | Extensions, next to PHP version, select the current version, choose a different version from the list, and then select Set as current. For example, if your current version is 8.1, select 8.0.
  6. Repeat the previous step, but choose the version you were using before and don't forget to select Set as current.
