From version 0.9.8 all CWP servers have a CWP PHP Selector which can install all PHP versions with a single click.
Using CWP PHP selector you can use a different PHP version per folder or domain.

Available PHP versions in the CWP PHP Selector
- php 4.4
- php 5.2
- php 5.3
- php 5.4
- php 5.5
- php 5.6
- php 7.0
- php 7.1
- php 7.2
- php 7.3
- php 7.4
- php 8.0
- php 8.1

You can completely modify flags per PHP version according to you needs.

PHP per folder
Now each user can run a PHP version per folder, meaning that each folder can have a different php version, example:
/home/USERNAME/public_html runs PHP 5.4
/home/USERNAME/public_html/test runs PHP 5.6
/home/USERNAME/public_html/ runs PHP 7.2
/home/USERNAME/public_html/ runs PHP 5.3

Usage instructions

In each folder where you want to run a different PHP version you only need to define it in the .htaccess file.

Example for file: /home/USERNAME/public_html/.htaccess

Use PHP 4.4
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php44 .php

Use PHP 5.2
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php52 .php

Use PHP 5.3
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php53 .php

Use PHP 5.4
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php54 .php

Use PHP 5.5
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php55 .php

AddHandler application/x-httpd-php70 .php

Use PHP 7.1
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php71 .php
