-**It will be supported from 5.3RC1**+**As of LSWS v5.3RC1, you can use alt-php directly from MultiPHP Manager**
  
 +In cPanel & WHM version 66 and later, EasyApache 4 allows you to use Vendor-provided PHP versions such as CloudLinux PHP selector right from MultiPHP Manager. This includes ''​alt-php44'',​ ''​alt-php51'',​ ''​alt-php52'',​ ''​alt-php53'',​ ''​alt-hpp54'',​ ''​alt-php55'',​ ''​alt-php56'',​ ''​alt-php70'',​ ''​alt-php71'',​ ''​alt-php72''​.

 + 
 +Using cPanel MultiPHP Manager is the recommended methodsince it is easy to understand and supports both ''​ea-php'' ​and ''​alt-php''​.  CloudLinux PHP selector sometimes might be a little complicated to understandhence it is not recommended. An advanced user can choose either one as preferredas long as it is understood how CloudLinux PHP selector works together with WHM/cPanel MultiPHP ManagerThe following section **Why CloudLinux PHP Selector Works on Apache but Does Not Work on LSWS** provides a good example of how complicated ​it can be to try enforcing everything ​to ''​alt-php'' ​while using CloudLinux PHP Selector. Unless you understand it wellwe don't recommend you go through such a complicated path for such little benefit. ​MultiPHP Manager ​could simply make your life easier

- +===== Why CloudLinux PHP Selector Works on Apache but Does Not Work on LSWS ===== 
- +In a cPanel EA4 and CloudLinux environment,​ Most of the LSWS LSPHP external apps such as ''​lsphpxx'' ​are pointing ​to ''​ea-phpxx''​, instead of ''​alt-phpxx''​. Only one external app, ''​cl_phpselector'' ​is pointing ​to ''​/​usr/​local/​bin/​lsphp'' ​(the CloudLinux PHP selector binary).

- ​Which ​causes a problem: when a user account inherited cpanel system default PHP version and CloudLinux PHP selector is set to use php70 for that user account, Why apache seems returning the right version of php70 but LSWS seems always returning php56  or other php version alighing with cpanel multi-php manager system default php version?+This causes a problem.
  
-Actually there is nothing wrong with LSWS, LSWS is still follow CloudLinux-cPanel-EA4 php determination work flow+For example: A user account inherits the cPanel system default PHP version, and the CloudLinux PHP selector ​is set to use ''​php70''​ for that user account. Apache seems to return the correct version of ''​php70''​but LSWS always seems to return ''​php56''​ (or whatver ​cPanel's Multi PHP Manager system default PHP version is).
  
-When a user account inherited cpanel system default PHP configurated from cPanel Multi PHP Manageron Apache, CloudLinux PHP Selector ​is used hence it returns right php version ​On ​LSWS, since you change ​the external app associated with cpanel default version ea-php56 in this example. It will look for suffix php56, which is currently using lsphp56.+In actualitythere is nothing wrong with LiteSpeed Web Server. LSWS is following ​the correct CloudLinux-cPanel-EA4 PHP determination work flow
  
-lsphp56 was+  * **Apache**When a user account inherits the cPanel system default PHP configuration from cPanel Multi PHP Manager, the CloudLinux PHP Selector is used. Hence it returns the right PHP version.  ​

-However somehow you changed it to the following already+''​lsphp56''​ was:

 +You changed it to: 
 +  lsphp56->​ /​opt/​alt/​php56/​usr/​bin/​lsphp
  
-then /​opt/​alt/​php56/​usr/​bin/​lsphp is differnt than cpanel ​default ea-php56( /​opt/​cpanel/​ea-php56/​root/​usr/​bin/​lsphp),​ hence CloudLinux PHP Selector won't be used, instead, ​lsphp56 (/​opt/​alt/​php56/​usr/​bin/​lsphp) will be always used for LSWS.+''​/​opt/​alt/​php56/​usr/​bin/​lsphp'' ​is differnt than cPanel'​s ​default ​''​ea-php56''​(which is  ''​/​opt/​cpanel/​ea-php56/​root/​usr/​bin/​lsphp''​), hence the CloudLinux PHP Selector won't be used. Instead''​lsphp56'' ​(or, ''​/​opt/​alt/​php56/​usr/​bin/​lsphp''​) will be always used for LSWS.
  
-How to fix it? The key is to tell LSWS to use CloudLinux PHP selector instead of a particular version of alt-php.+So, how can you get the PHP version you want? The key is to tell LSWS to use the CloudLinux PHP selector instead of a particular version of alt-php.
  
-You can either update external app lsphp56 to point to PHP selector binary ​"/​usr/​local/​bin/​lsphp", or more easily, update ​php handler of suffix ​"php56" ​to served by "cl_phpselector" ​instead of "lsphp56".+You can either update ​the external app ''​lsphp56'' ​to point to PHP selector binary ​''​/​usr/​local/​bin/​lsphp''​, or more easily, update ​the PHP handler of suffix ​''​php56'' ​to be served by ''​cl_phpselector'' ​instead of ''​lsphp56''​.
