What is Managed PHP service?

Managed PHP means that SiteGround will automatically update your PHP once we are sure there is a newer stable and safe version, which will give you the latest security and performance enhancements. This service is enabled by default for all new accounts activated on our platform, but clients may switch it OFF and ON per site from Site Tools.

How to enable Managed PHP service? 

To check if your Managed PHP is enabled, enter your SiteGround hosting account and go to the Websites tab. Choose the website for which you want to activate it and click on the Site Tools button.

Once you are in Site Tools, go to Devs > PHP Manager and click on the pencil icon “Change PHP version.

If your website is already using Managed PHP service, a lightbox with preselected “Managed PHP” setting will appear.

If your site is not using the Managed PHP service, you will see “Change PHP Version Manually” setting in the lightbox, which you can click and change to “Managed PHP”. Once you make a new selection, don’t forget to click on the Confirm button.
