Hi,

If I started the migration process from ea3 to ea4, will it updade php, mysql, or many other things that my current website relies on? Also I have cloudlinux, will it break that?

Or does it just upgrade to ea4 without touching php, mysql, etc, until I actually build them.

Hello,

Yes, upgrading to EasyApache 4 can lead to the installation of newer versions of PHP. However, since you are using CloudLinux, you
you also have access to PHP Selector for the purpose of using legacy PHP versions (e.g. PHP 5.3). CloudLinux documents how to upgrade to EasyApache 4 at:

CloudLinux Documentation

MySQL is not upgraded and is handled separately from Apache and PHP. You can read about how to do that at:

MySQL or MariaDB Upgrade - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
