Beta: EasyApache 4 released for CloudLinux

Beta: EasyApache 4 released for CloudLinux

We are happy to announce that EasyApache 4 for CloudLinux is available from our beta repository. All EasyApache packages are prepared to work with CloudLinux.

Advices and limitations:

  • If you have some conflicts with Installing profile during migration “/etc/cpanel/ea4/profiles/custom/ea3_state_at_migration-****************.json”, just install cPanel default profile.
  • alt-php should be installed or updated only from cloudlinux-updates-testing repository:

          yum groupinstall alt-php --enablerepo=cloudlinux-updates-testing

  • The EntryProcesses limit doesn’t work when EA4 is configured in “php as cgi” mode. We are working on fixing it, so the preferable mode for php is suphp. If you have only cgi handler, please install it:
  1.  yum install ea-apache24-mod_suphp.  
  2.  select for any ea-php version suphp handler.
  • Use cPanel 11.55.999.66(55.999.66) or higher version.
  • This is the very first EA4 Release for CloudLinux, in case of any errors don’t hesitate to write to our support team - https://helpdesk.cloudlinux.com/

Is suhosin planned for the beta support of EA4? I converted but don't see suhosin available yet in the cl-ea4-testing yum repository.

cPanel does not support this package yet in their repositories, so we are currently not planning to add extra packages (for preventing breaking EasyApache 4 work).

Can suhosin from alt-php be used in EA4?

In theory - yes; if module used from alt-php version coincides ea-php version. Update can cause problems - if module signature in ea-php changes, will cease working.

Alt-PHP will be available for EasyApache 4 as for EasyApache 3, but Alt-PHP packages will be managed not through the web interface.

I second the "guest" from Nadi's question: Will CloudLinux and EasyApache 4 support versions of PHP as old as PHP 5.3? I need to be able to run selected CPanel accounts on PHP 5.3.
