About this Article

PHP scripts (such as WordPress) require certain PHP modules to be in place in order for them to work correctly. This article describes how to add a missing module.

What Might be Happening

If you run a web application (for example WordPress) and something you have installed is saying it won’t work because you’re missing something – it’s likely a PHP Module.

Adding a PHP Module

You can add or remove these modules in your web hosting panel. Here’s how:

  1. Login to cPanel Control Panel
  2. Scroll to the Software section
  3. Click Select PHP Version
  4. Click the Switch to PHP Options link
  5. Select or un-select the modules you require
  6. Click Save at the bottom of the screen then refresh the page to make sure they have saved. If not, click Use Default and add/remove your modules again
  7. Click Save
  8. Job done

You can always come back and click Default to reload the current default settings. These are the one’s we’ve set and believe should suit most hosting needs.

If the Module Required Is Not in the List

If the module you require is not in the list or your script has another requirement that has not been met, please submit a ticket and we’ll see what we can do. We will need to assess the security risk of adding new modules or other items so we can’t guarantee we can always meet your requirements.
