Adding or removing PHP modules

If you require a specific PHP module that is not included in our native build of PHP then you may be able to add it through the control panel.

To do this log into the DirectAdmin control panel at

Under the Advanced Features heading click on Select PHP Version

To configure custom modules you must be using a different PHP installation than our native one. This can still be the same version of PHP as our native installation. Select the PHP version that you require from the menu, do not select native, and click Set as current.

After changing to a PHP version other than native you should now see a list of PHP modules. Tick the additional modules you require and click save.

Note that the PHP version and modules are set for your entire user account, it is not possible to set the PHP version or modules per domain. If you have multiple websites requiring different versions of PHP and/or different modules then you will need to either purchase separate accounts for each site or purchase a reseller plan. Reseller plans contain multiple user accounts.
