How Kinsta Makes PHP Updates a Breeze

At Kinsta, you can easily update your PHP version in the MyKinsta dashboard. Select your website under the Sites menu. Then navigate to Tools and toggle to your desired PHP engine. Within a few seconds, your environment will be up and running. 

Kinsta’s PHP configuration includes a custom self-healing feature, meaning your site’s PHP engine will automatically restart if it goes down. Should the automatic PHP restart be unsuccessful, our monitoring system will alert our sysadmin team to investigate the issue right away.
