I Enabled PHP 5.6 from my dashboard but after that my wordpress site shows version 5.2.17. Some applications not working, especially my feed not working after changing it to 5.6 from 5.3. What to do ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Once you change PHP versions, you also have to restart Apache.
Unsure how to do this in GoDaddy's system.
Likely you'll find an option to do this in the Control Panel.
To ensure a restart actually works...
First stop Apache + verify your site content no longer serves.
Then restart Apache + hopefully you'll see PHP-5.6 show up.
Keep in mind, PHP-5.6 is nearing end of life, so best to go to PHP-7.1 instead.
i am using shared deluxe hosting plan and i don't have access to restart option for apache. anybody from godaddy can help me do this to refresh my site?
The same thing happened to me, updated from PHP 5.3 to PHP 5.6. Have restarted service by clicing "End Web" for now 10 times but PHP version is still PHP 5.2.17.
Is it possible that this happens because it is SUNDAY ?
After 3 days and 10-20 times of doing Click "End Web", I initiated a Chat through the GoDaddy Hosting panel and one member of support team solved the problem.
I think the problem was in some configuration files of my hosting maybe .htaccess but I am not sure.
Anyway the support guy solved the problem in 2 min.
