Cron php version differs from WP version

Hi, the wp control events are running on the (shared) server’s php version (7.4.33) rather than the php version assigned to WP (php 8 and above.) I can confirm WP is running on 8 using the info.php page. This is causing one of our crons to crash as the code requires php 8. Even using php -v in the server terminal reports php 8, but these crons and wp cli crons both run on the server 7.4.33 php.

Is there a way I can get WP Control crons to run on the newer php version?
