Webfaction setup

PHP Ubuntu 18.04

I’ve been with Webfaction for almost 10 years now and am happy with their setup.
But a recent acquisition by GoDaddy has caused some concerns among their customers.

I am wondering if it is possible to mimic their setup on a Ubuntu 18.04 distro.
They have multiple PHP versions installed and we can choose older version for a website.

Hey friend,

While it is definitely possible, I have no clear path to give you. I would say it’s like renting a giant building. You can built whatever you want in it, but I may not have a tutorial for what you want to build. For some this is the perfect amount of freedom, for others too much. I can perfectly understand why anyone might be in either of those camps.
