I'm pretty sure I modified the right files. However, where in an interesting situation here with our machine. We have a domain for site which runs in PHP 5.5 because of ionCube, but a subdomain which inherits PHP 5.5 (where we would want PHP 7.1) for the panel. So how would we work this out? My business partner mentioned a VM, but we want to see if something could be worked out here before jumping to that potential solution.
