For some reason this still eludes me when I need it. So I decided to save this information on my own site.
Go to cPanel, File Manager and choose “Web Root (public_html/www)”. There create a new file (or edit the existing one) called .htaccess and add the following line:
To switch to PHP 7.0
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php70 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
To switch to PHP 5.6
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php56 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
To switch to PHP 5.5
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php55 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
To switch to PHP 5.4
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php54 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
To switch to PHP 5.3
1 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php53 .php .php5 .php4 .php3
It’s been years since I’ve spent much time or energy on my own websites. Sigh. As a Professional Web Developer, you spend most of your time updating and maintaining other people’s websites, not your own.
Today I decided it was time. Four and half hours later, a new look, template and updated everything.
Years ago I purchased the “Thesis” them from DIYThemes. It hadn’t been updated or upgraded in years and I decided to finally take the time to do it. I like easy, and this template makes managing my own site easy.
It’s always good to keep your sites up-to-date and to remove any Plug-ins that you’re not using. If you haven’t looked at DIYThemes for your next WordPress site, check it out.
Wow – how fun. And it’s very clean and as they say, so powerful with all of it’s configuration options on the backend. I’m going to love learning to use this one.
