# Force PHP Restart

To force a PHP restart for a specific site the easiest thing to do is to toggle the PHP version to another version and then back again to the version it was set to. This will force all current PHP processes to close and php-fpm to restart.

  1. Browse to the website you want to restart PHP and click Manage
  2. On the website dashboard select the Advanced menu and click Developer Tools
  3. Under PHP Engine, change the version to a new version, wait for it to complete and then set it back again
  4. PHP processes will now restart
