How do I change My PHP version and settings?

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