Is it possible to install Python 3.1 on a virtual server and not affect the rest of the virtual servers, which have 3.6.8?

OS type and version Rocky Linux 8.6
Webmin version 2.105
Virtualmin version 7.9.0

I have Python 3.6.8 installed on all virtual servers. Would it be possible to install version 3.1 on only one, without affecting the rest? Thanks.

As I always say - what is the reason to downgrade a perfectly good working version? to one that has not undergone critical updates and bu fixes

I have to install code on one of the virtual servers to connect to an API, and the manufacturer tells me “you have to put it inside a python environment.”

so they are still using an out-of-date version of Python and can’t be bothered to upgrade so they expec you to downgrade to cover their incompetence.

I had been wrong with the versions. I apologize. You can close the topic if you want, and thanks for the advice.

Manufacturer tell you to use python virtualenv. This is way to create different environment with different python versions for different applications.
