    Default Upgrading to PHP 7.0

    I'm a fairly non-techie (although used to code years ago) and need to upgrade PHP (running 5.3) and understand 7.0 is the way to go. I have wordpress installed on my server, which two blogs/instances are using. Are there tools (within cPanel or somewhere else) where this can be done automatically? Or do you need to FTP into the server and do it all manually?

    What type of account do you have with WestHost? On managed servers this is taken care of for you and should have already been upgraded to PHP 7.

    Strangely I am told the server has been upgraded. Possibly means my wordpress installation is running it's own PHP version on top of the one the server is running?

    Log into cPanel and scroll down to Software. See if you have a MultiPHP Manager. Check and see if you have PHP 7 set for the accounts.

    Good call on that. I do have MultiPHP Manager. It says ea-php70 and 'inherited' on all of the instances, which I presume should imply they would all be PHP7, so this just make it even stranger.

    Check for .htaccess or user.ini files in the home directory of the wordpress installs. See if either of those reference the an older version of php.

    .htcaccess shows this:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </IfModule>

    No reference to PHP version. Did not see any user.ini files, at least not in the public_html/[blog name] folder.
