My server has last PHP versión but WordPress still But my site keeps asking for the latest version, how do I update this? Thank you

  • I've noticed this also on my sites that have PHP 7.3, but WP still complains about an old version of PHP. My theory is that I'll just ignore that warning, because I know better. Sep 26, 2019 at 2:55

You can check your .htaccess file. WordPress will check if you have this line:

# Use PHP 7.3 as default

If it's not the latest PHP version (i.e PHP 5.6), even if you are running the latest version on your host, your dashboard will show that warning.
