    Hi and thank you for this,
    is it possible to set the php version for a subdirectory of public_html? For example as is given in one of the examples public_html/wp or in my case for one of my subdomains?
    Kind Regards,

    Yes, you can set different version for sub directory. Just select the sub directory and desired version and click submit to work.
