Web server using different PHP then terminal?

Posted November 9, 2021 94 views

When using SSH into my server php -v returns

PHP 8.0.12 (cli) (built: Oct 22 2021 12:34:00) ( NTS )
Copyright (c) The PHP Group
Zend Engine v4.0.12, Copyright (c) Zend Technologies
    with Zend OPcache v8.0.12, Copyright (c), by Zend Technologies

which makes sense, I just updated it. However a PHP file with


return PHP Version

What is going wrong here? I’ve been spending about 40 minutes trying to install Curl and seeing php -m has curl and it not being enabled and then found this out, so this might be the underlying issue.
