How do I change My PHP version and settings?

All of our shared servers have options to change the PHP version for individual cPanel/DirectAdmin accounts. This option, called 'Select PHP Version', can be found in cPanel under the Software section and in DirectAdmin under the Extra Features section.

Once a PHP version is set to something other than the server's native version, there will be a 'Switch to PHP Settings' option on the right side, where you can make modifications to common PHP settings, like max_execution_time or memory_limit.
