Hello, @telkins

PHP versions 7.x and 8.x are supported. PHP 7.x will be used by default, unless a specific version is requested via composer.json by your app or a dependency. To configure the version used for your app, add a php dependency to composer.json like so:

  1. {
  2. "require": {
  3. "php": "^8.1.0"
  4. }
  5. }

For more details please see the PHP buildpack documentation

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
