Is it possible to upgrade system PHP on Plesk server?

    I have the same question and this response does not address it.   I use PHP 7 in my applications but when I try to load packages via the command line I get errors like:

    league/oauth2-client 2.3.0 requires php ^5.6|^7.0 -> your PHP version (5.4.45)

    5.4.45 is by OS Vendor and I need to know how to update this as it is what the Centos command line thinks my PHP version is.

    @Janet, use Plesk PHP in CLI instead of OS one:

    # /opt/plesk/php/7.2/bin/php -v
    PHP 7.2.3 (cli) (built: Mar 2 2018 14:04:04) ( NTS )

    I have a similar issue. I recently uploaded a new wordpress version of a website and it won't allow certain plugins because the server php is too old. It is currently running php 5.3.3

    How can it be updated without disryuption?

    I would have thought this kind of update would have been automated, or at least handled by yourselves like with most ISPs

    Hello @Phil!

    A Wordpress instance installed on a domain does not use server PHP version, it uses domain PHP version. PHP version may be selected at Domains > > PHP Settings. New PHP versions, which will be available to select need to be installed according to this article.
