Hi @rezacw,

Welcome to our forums! PHP version 5.6 is not currently supported by any of our hosting plans.

If php version 5.6 is not supported by any of your hosting plans what do you do. I am using woocommerce with stripe which now requires and 5.6. Do I look for another host that does support.

Exciting news to all GoDaddy cPanel users. Your account is now updated with the latest PHP 7.0 and 7.1! If you want to update, login to your cPanel dashboard. Then under the Software heading click “Select PHP version”. In the top left of the PHP selection page use the dropdown the PHP version you want and click set as current. You are now ready to go! But a heads-up before you update, I recommend you check you site for compatibility first. If you have any questions our customer support team is happy to help 24/7. Just call (480) 505-8877.

I changed my PHP version to 7.1 from  'select php version' under 'software' section. But it's not originally change and when I am going to run some command in root directory, It's saying to select choose php7.0 or later and showing php5.4 as current version. php5.4 is native in 'select php version'. How can I change the native php version?
