How to Update the PHP Version of Your WordPress Using Godaddy Cpanel

Just as you upgrade WordPress itself to make sure you are protected against security vulnerabilities, you should do the same with PHP. In addition, upgrading PHP produces a significant speed increase. PHP 7.0 was a huge leap forward – more than doubling performance compared to 5.6. With version 7.3 we have seen another 20% – 25% increase compared to 7.0. 7.4 is also showing performance improvements over 7.3.

We highly recommend PHP 7.3, 7.4 or the latest version 8.0 as it’s much faster, resource-friendly, and more secure than its predecessors.

In this video I show you how to update your PHP version if your using Godaddy hosting, Cpanel.
