Updating to PHP 7.2 on Synology NAS


I am new to Drupal and I am using the standard Drupal 8 install built in to the Synology packages software, which installed to use php 7.0.

Having seen a report from within Drupal suggesting moving to php 7.2, I installed php 7.2, again using the standard Synology package installation. This seems to have completed without error.

However, Drupal is still happily using PHP 7.0 … How do I inform Drupal that it should now be looking to the php 7.2 install?
