PHP is one of the most commonly used general-purpose server-side scripting languages. It’s rather popular as it’s free software, which can be used to develop interactive sites such as social networking websites, e-stores or school websites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be read. Because there are no license taxes for such a module and the language itself provides unlimited possibilities for the apps that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. Also, there are a lot of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any programming know-how. Since there’re different PHP versions, you should verify if the same exact version that you used while building your website is activated on the server as well.

You can change the version with only one click of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly.
