Can I use php 8+ versions?

Username (e.g. epiz_XXX) or Website URL

Error Message

I’ve installed laravel through Softaculus. But it requires PHP version >=8.0.3. But hosting has at max 7.4 version. Can I use 8th PHP?

Other Information

No. Still running 7.4 on IF
Your best bet is to get Laravel that is running on lower PHP version


Just to add some more info:

I don’t know how Laravel is installed via Softaculus but if you can specify a Laravel version, use 8.*, which will most likely install 8.75. That one requires PHP >= 7.3 as mentioned on the Laravel website.

For example, when using Composer, it looks like this:

composer create-project laravel/laravel my-project 8.*
