Choose PHP Version for every Application (not for Server)
It should be possible to choose different php versions on a single server. This is possible in most shared hosting environments and is a big advantage.
It is expensive to create a new server only because you need for example an old php version for a specific application which is not compatible.

Out of curiosity, is this not possible (hard/impossible) or incompatible to do implementation wise.

Yes, absolutely agree. It would be great to have an ability to switch different PHP versions on each application.
All my other servers have this feature, each account can have it's own PHP settings. many clients would like to have one server but put different sites or applications on it. Cloudways has been great for that, but some client apps are not running the same version of PHP, so we can't consolidate.
Guys, they said that their current architecture doesn't allow them to support this feature so I'm thinking about migrating my apps to Laravel Forge. Does anyone have some other recommendations for a managed platform or what do you think about Forge?
Original post was done in May 2016. Almost six years later this feature is not available!
I have a lot of apps on one of my servers. Thus a PHP upgrade becomes a very onerous task!
There does not appear to be any good tools to validate an application against a PHP version in advance. You can only make a clone and then test. This is brutal when you have many apps (i have over 60)! If you can't make PHP per app available, at least provide some kind of decent tool to make the migration process much less painful i.e. a way to check app compatibility with the PHP version you want to move to.

Cloudways, please implement changing PHP version per application, this way we will be able to test on staging, before we make an update that can potentially brake a live site.
Francis Wurtz commented
Need it in Cloudways!

Must needed feature.

Must have feature
Dean Mathieson commented
Definitely a required feature.
Cloudways please implement this feature in your platform. The request is 4 years old and really a must!
I agree it should be possible since another application might not be compatible while another one is. And to make an application compatible we need to do this one by one.
When are we likely to have this implemented?
Cloudways when will you add this option? it is a must !
absolutely necessary. I just found out this. wow...

Please merge the duplicates & the votes :
Also very important for the staging application so it's possible to test an upgrade to PHP/MariaDB on the staging application before applying it on the production application.

This has already been suggested, and has many votes. I suggest migrating your vote over to that ticket, and deleting this new one, rather than spread votes out between two of them. https://cloudways.uservoice.com/forums/203824-service-improvement/suggestions/13946670-choose-php-version-for-every-application-not-for
