There is also a method of checking the version by executing a command, but the version may differ from the version when the website is actually displayed.

The PHP executed in the cPanel Terminal or SSH connection is different from the PHP executed when browsing the website.
Therefore, the PHP version displayed by the "php --version" command may differ from the version confirmed by the confirmation method using the PHP file described on this page.
