Tutorial: How To Upgrade Your PHP Version in Bluehost cPanel

A good piece of advise if you are thinking of #bluehost. I started hosting with them in may 2013. Just after a couple of months, my websites were down for more than 3 days. The only way to communicate with them was through Facebook. It may happen with any server, but their inability to communicate with the clients but only through Facebook is really sad. I started getting problems with my emails slowly. The emails from different domains/ different email accounts will stay in the outbox for hours before leaving. I sent them emails about it. They will reply back to me but the thread will be missing. They will keep asking silly question in their reply after a day or two. I never had any email problem sorted. I moved 5 domains to new hosting. I just do not want any other to get into this nightmare; hence wasting my time and writing this. WHen you google for #bluehost Bad service, there are many Davids, and Sharma’s talking so nicely about #bluehost in their blogs aor Hosting review sites. Beware!

In this video I will be showing you how to upgrade your PHP version to 5.6 (or downgrade back to 5.4) from the BlueHost cPanel. Upgrading your PHP version can make your site run more efficiently and take up less space in your database. If you want to learn about more speed up tips that will help your site run faster, check out my other videos I made that will provide many different options for optimizing.

    Thank you!

    I was using a few plugins that wouldn't work for me on my site. The Problem is now solved.
