We had a number of tickets raised by clients stating that their PHP versions were 'reverting' periodically.
After thoroughly investigating the issue, we have found that this issue is isolated to accounts which have been migrated from other hosting providers which specifically make use of the MultiPHP Manager in WHM / cPanel.
At Brixly, we don't use the MultiPHP Selector throughout, allowing us to make use of the 'PHP Selector' which is bundled with the Cloudlinux product.
The investigation led us to notice that the MultiPHP configuration was being migrated from the previous provider, ignoring the global 'disable' of this functionality on our own servers.
We have raised this with cPanel, who confirmed they believe this to be a bug, however we have deployed a solution internally to resolve the issue.
We have added a 'post restore' cPanel hook, which now resets the PHP Version to 'Inherit', allowing the account to make full use of the Cloudlinux PHP Selector as intended.

The fix has now been deployed to all servers.
