    Are there any cons?

    Or is WHM to work better with 5.4

    Thanks

    Hello,

    PHP 5.6 is not yet available in EasyApache. We have a feature request discussing its availability:

    PHP 5.6 | cPanel Feature Requests

    As such, you are best to use PHP 5.4 with cPanel & WHM.

    On the other hand, if you are using CloudLinux operating system, PHP Selector does provide PHP 5.6 for cPanel >> Select PHP Version area, though. Here are the available versions of PHP for those with CloudLinux who have PHP Selector (with CageFS enabled):

    4.4, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6

    If you are not using CloudLinux, you can read about a trial for that at this location:

    http://trial.cloudlinux.com/overview/

    As for the desirability of using PHP 5.6 in and of itself, production sites may not function with PHP 5.6, since it is newer and less used at this point. For a testing site or server, it would be fine to use PHP 5.6, but you would want to be careful in switching to PHP 5.6 for any production sites or servers. Since CloudLinux allows account-level switching for PHP Selector, it would be viable to test PHP 5.6 under that operating system to see how it functions for you.

    Thanks!
