You change PHP versions by using your CPANEL or Control Panel

Accessing CPANEL
You can use https://sv5.nzhost.net.nz:2083/ or http://yourdomain.xxx/cpanel

Under the software section find this icon called Select PHP version

You can set the PHP version only for the entire domain

The default version of PHP selected will show at the top - currently set at PHP 5.3

Suggest that use the Tab Use Defaults - then you can customise the settings if you want

PHP 5.3
PHP 5.4
PHP 5.5
PHP 5.6
PHP 7.0
PHP 7.1

When you have selected your PHP version then click save.
If you encounter errors on the new PHP version you can either resolve the issue or switch back to the previous version.

Note:-
Make sure that any PHP directives such as php_flag or php_value in the .htaccess file are valid for the PHP version you are using otherwise you may encounter an internal server error.

Example php_flag register_globals Off will not work on PHP versions higher than PHP 5.3

All too hard?

Get NZServers to do this

Change PHP Version

Note there is a charge for doing this of $47.50 excl of GST as you can do this yourself.
