Newby hosting question, I’m hosting with Bluehost and they are updating the version of PHP sites can run on. When I check through my Bluehost cpanel my Concrete5 v 8.5.5 site url says it is running php 7.3, but when I check the site in my concrete5 admin under System & Settings/Environment it says it is running PHP 5.6.40. This seems odd as this site is less than 2 years old? Would this be correct, and if so how do I update to a newer version of php for this concrete5 site?
Check your .htaccess file, my guess is that there’s a line in there that is specifically setting PHP5.6 for the site. You might need to just remove those lines.
Or check the PHP.ini file
This was the issue (it was added in the .htaccess file). The site was running on a legacy version of Concrete5 and I updated it to 8.5.5 and it was the root directory so I think I copied over the .htaccess file from the legacy site. Thanks for the help!
