    Ok folks.

    I really like to know when Cpanel is going to release the new modules that will work with Apache2 so some of us can be adventerous in upgrading to Apache2 version, which we can get true suexec capability with PHP itself instead of the phpsuexec option or suphp?

    I think it is sort of long overdue to have the modules ready for it, since what I have seen, the API for Apache2 have been stablized and been forked into separate tree build for now. The modules in question is the mod_log_bytes and mod_auth_passthough, which is same as mod_frontpage maintained by the BSD developer, which is based on mod_improved_frontpage.

    PHP recommends users not use PHP with Apache2. Until they say it works fine it will not be included with cPanel

    PHP & Apache2

    Then Billy,

    I think you need to revisit that issue, since now PHP is now available for Apache2 and no longer marked experimental now. So it is production ready for it, and frankly, you can combine both together considering that Cpanel Backend uses regular php cgi using it own webserver code while the main websites are using apache itself.

    However it is not marked as experimental, but still marked as unreliable.

    Please show the official link on php.net or apache.org that states it is unreliable. I for one would like to see that.

    I only wish and hope that whenever Apache 2.0 is supported, Apache 1.3.x continues. There are issues wrt mod_perl 1.9/2 for Apache 2.x

    I think I found the real issue, and it is Rasmus himself.

    i wonder how Billy got to the australian php mirror....

    php.net automatically selects a mirror from the nearest location they have....does this mean Billy is somewhere rather close to Australia? :D

    Unstable? Yeah right

    I have Apache2 running on few servers that do not have Cpanel on it to see how well it runs and it runs extremely well and have much better performance out of it compared to Apache 1.3 series. I haven't seen any major issues with it and your saying it is unstable is simply untrue.

    PHP is currently supporting Apache2 and for that link you sent, it is the mentality of that guy who don't feel like rewriting the entire set of module he wrote himself to work on Apache2. And it is not the official view of the PHP community itself, just a lunatic rant of one person.

    ok Everyone needs to take a Chill Pill,

    cPanel will release it in time, it may be a while it may be short, but if you want the best preformances, then I suggest wait.

    I think before they do anymore development and upgrades is to actually try and clean out the bugzilla bugs especially before cPanel 10 then start thinking about upgrades and new developments and instead of before.

    Thats all i have to say :)

    only problem with that is that other vendors are announcing end-of-life for apache 1.3.x already, cpanel is very late on migrating to apache2.

    then they can support both, as ensim has for a year now. Allowing the server admin to choose which is default port 80 server and which runs on an alternate port (or runs at all).

    that's going to be the only way they will ever get it fully tested and "approved" by the majority of their customers before they are forced to commit to it on short notice, such as it no longer being supported/updated by redhat for example.
