Hello!
First I would like to thank you for the service you provide, then apologize if I am not doing the post well.
I have a query, I just installed Wordpress and on the "desktop" I have a warning saying that it is necessary to update PHP.

 

“WordPress has detected that your site is working with an insecure version of PHP.
What is PHP and how does it affect my site?
PHP is the programming language that we use to create and maintain WordPress. The latest versions of PHP are faster and more secure, so updating will have a positive effect on the performance of your site. "

I found a letter that I should send you:
 

“Dear hosting provider, I want my website to be as efficient and secure as possible with the latest version of PHP. For the server my WordPress is hosted on, I want to make sure it is. If I am not yet on the latest version of PHP, please let me know what steps I need to follow to update. Thank you!

 

I would like to know if this is possible, and if it is necessary.

Thank you very much!
Marcos DM

 

P.S. I used the google translator to send this post. I hope my query is clear.

You can change the PHP version in cPanel under "MultiPHP Manager". You probably want to use 7.3.

 

As a reminder, we strongly discourage the use of WP because it's extremely bloated and insecure. WP is the leading cause of suspended accounts here at HelioHost, usually because it causes high load, or because it got broken into and a hacker set up phishing. Just about any other CMS in existence is a better choice. Joomla (and more recently Ghost) have been popular choices here.


Please do not PM me for support. Posting on our forums lets all of us learn.
