    Hi

    If I want to compile Apache myself or install it from packages or something other than using easyapache, how can I let cPanel know where the httpd.conf is and where to put it's vhosts, etc?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    Is there a specific reason you prefer to use a standalone version of Apache? It's typically a better idea to implement any custom modifications with EasyApache rather than attempting to circumvent it.

    Thank you.

    I think the main reason is being able to recompile it on security updates very quickly.

    Critical security updates for Apache are typically pushed out with a new version of EasyApache relatively quickly. While you are welcome to implement a manual installation of Apache, it's important to note that it's not supported and you may encounter incompatibility issues.

    Thank you.

    So I'd need to recompile it using easyapache when these security updates come out?
