Reason behind timestamps on my .htaccess files change after an update.


Staff member
Whenever PHP or EasyApache packages updated, removed or installed script with name checks .htaccess files of all domains.

You have to use MultiPHP Manager to change PHP version or you can set “Inherit” so that from other methods you can change version.

# php -- BEGIN cPanel-generated handler, do not edit
# Set the “ea-php73” package as the default “PHP” programming language.
<IfModule mime_module>
AddHandler application/x-httpd-ea-php73 .php .php7 .phtml
# php -- END cPanel-generated handler, do not edit
Your section will be updated if any one statement is true.

If the section is not at the bottom of .htaccess file.

If the section is missing.

If anyone has modified this section.

If the section is at he the bottom of the .htaccess and looks similar to MultiPHP Manager then the script causes the time stamp on the file to change.
