update php from 7.1 to 7.4 on website (8.5.5)
I would appreciate any help for updating the PHP on my site - it's at 7.1.33 and bluehost is requesting 7.4
When changing it to 7.4 through bluehost, the site malfunctions, they recommend manually doing the upgrade - but I can't find any documentation about how to do this.
And help is appreciated - and heads up, I'm not a coder but have a basic understanding of how to change files. I'm pretty sure I have to change the .htacess file to reflect 7.4, what else needs to happen?
There should not be any references to the php version in your htaccess file.
If there is a reference to php, try commenting out that line or lines by placing a # character at the beginning of the line.
