    Hello,

    if i will be using PHP 5.3.29 END OF LIFE
    do i need to worry about WHM upgrading PHP to higher version somehow automatically when this version is no longer supported by PHP?

    As when i tried higher version, many scripts was throwing many errors..

    No, this won't upgrade automatically - you need to run EasyApache to perform he upgrade. Currently there are no known vulnerabilities in this version, but being end of life I would expect cPanel to withdraw it as soon as any are found. You would be worthwhile looking at upgrading to PHP v5.4 which has very few changes required from v5.3.

    Hello :)

    It won't upgrade automatically unless you build Apache/PHP via EasyApache after it's removal. Note that it's likely a good idea to go ahead and start planning on upgrading those scripts to support the newer versions of PHP.

    Thank you.
