CloudLInux provides an opportunity to add custom comments to PHP versions, chosen with PHP-Selector by users. Usually, they are used to notify users about outdated or recommended versions.
Upon forming a list of available versions selectorctl searches for /opt/alt/phpXX/name_modifier file to append it as a comment to a version.
To add your own comments - create a file for desired PHP version and write a text inside:
$ vi /opt/alt/php54/name_modifier
Do the same for other PHP versions. The changes are applied instantly. Make sure to add just a few words not to break dropdown list. The text will be shown in brackets in the console:
$ selectorctl -i php --summary
4.4 e - Totally unsupported version 5.1 - - Totally unsupported version 5.2 - - Totally unsupported version 5.3 e - Outdated version 5.4 e - Outdated version 5.5 e - Safe to use 5.6 e d Supported version 7.0 e - Recommended version native e -
