    Hello,
    I am experiencing a problem with ISPConfig panel. That's my fault. I am here to ask to you how can I change the PHP version used to parse the panel's code.
    *** The story ***
    Today I did
    Code:
    apt update
    apt upgrade
    I noticed that PHP 8.0.1 was installed on the system. My websites are working but the panel died.
    I tried to switch the system-wide PHP version by using
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config php
    But nothing happened.
    I also tried to add a custom handler on the /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/web/.htaccess
    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    Action php-cgi /usr/bin/php7.3
    # THIS ONE #
    AddHandler php-cgi .php
    # OR #
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php
    But the panel still uses PHP 8.0.1.

    Can you help me to figure out how solve this problem?
    Code:

    wow great thanks so much for the awesome ISPConfig and for making it easy.
    I ran this:
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config php-cgi
    selected php-cgi7.4 option 7 for me
    and then
    Code:
    service apache2 restart
    , and back to php 7.4.x
    Now ISPConfig admin is back up as expected.

    It does not matter if its the newest or not, just always keep the PHP version as default that is shipped with the OS version you use as all packages of the OS and ISPConfig rely on that version. Currently there is no supported os that has PHP 8 as the default.
