    For several of months now, php builds have had problems "right out of the box" and almost always after installing PECL any addon PECL modules, multiple no-debug-non-zts-* folders with the .so files being spread around (and not having proper permissions), and errors in php.ini files.

    Sure, a sysadmin can fix these issues with manual edits - but why should we have to do this?

    cPanel has said that the stuff has been fixed - but not in 11.28.x

    Yet - months later, 11.28 is still the RELEASE build.

    There are a lot of posts by lots of people in the cPanel forum about these issues.

    It's getting a little "old" - it has just been "too long" to let these issues persist in the RELEASE build.

    If I am not mistaken - it has been since Jan 2011 or before... and still counting the days.

    When is this going to stop? And why did was it allowed to persist for so long?

    So I installed EDGE to take a look (WHM 11.30.0 (build 7))

    and went into the php editor...

    and is says:

    This system has multiple PHP installs. Select which one to edit below.
    [x] Default PHP (/usr/bin/php) [ ]Alternate PHP (/usr/php4/bin/php)

    But you know what? I don't.

    root@xxx [~]# ls /usr/php4/
    /bin/ls: /usr/php4/: No such file or directory

    Sure, not related to the issues I already complained about... but it's not a good sign... MONTHS LATER...

    What is going on with the person or people responsible for this aspect of WHM?

    I think they have lost focus.

    We just want our php configuration editors to work in a fresh install, at the minimum. And if they can work after installing a module - thats a plus... we have better things to do than fool with this stuff manually again and again on multiple WHM based servers.

    It's been too long of a wait.

    I'll shut up and see if anyone agrees or disagrees with me.

    And it continues... still not fixed.... I just setup a few servers and I had to fool around with the php.ini on all of them.

    What a waste of time.
