EA4 Documentation vs Actual EA4?

    I'm hoping someone can help here?
    cPanel/WHM is version 62.0.16

    cPanel documentation states that FastCGI is supported. However, when attempting to:

    Code:
    /scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 --run
    The following error is displayed:

    Where is FastCGI? Documentation says it's supported.
    Source: https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/EA4/Current+Status+of+EasyApache+4 (under 'Feature Staus', FastCGI is now checked green as supported by EA4 using cPanel 62.x).

    ** Below are not necessarily, related to "documentation vs actual" **

    On another note, I understand that compiling is no longer used by EA4, rather RPM's are used instead. How then are we to return the functionality of MailHeaders, etc. if we don't compile anymore? (As the error clearly stated that no RPMs were available).

    I doubt Cloudflare is going to manage RPMs, and again, without compiling (as EA3 does) how can we then include such things?

    I have a handful of servers and none of them are able to migrate to EA4, because of missing modules, compatibility issues, and loss of Apache extensions (the documentation says the extension settings are stripped out of php.ini), etc.

    Finally, how do we disable auto RPM updates of Apache/PHP (whenever EA4 can be enabled)? It needs to be manually updated at the appropriate times.

    So... Any help with the above would be greatly appreciated, to overcome these challenges.

    Thank you!

    @vacancy Nice post on that "auto disable and use of ea* - Thanks for that!
    Looks like I'll have to wait for EA4 to mature a bit more ;)
    I'm lucky, there's zero need (or even requests) for multi php at my end.
    Thanks again for your awesome input!

    Hello @rogerw,

    I'm happy to see you were able to obtain answers to your concerns. I did want to provide some additional information about the other modules you mentioned:

    In the case of Mod_Access, it's deprecated in Apache 2.4. Thus, it's not included with EasyApache 4. Instead, the following modules are compiled with Apache by default:

    Code:
    mod_access_compat.so
    mod_auth_basic.so
    mod_authn_core.so
    mod_authn_file.so
    mod_authz_core.so
    mod_authz_groupfile.so
    mod_authz_host.so
    mod_authz_user.so
    This feature is now controlled under the "Security" tab in "WHM >> Tweak Settings":

    Tweak Settings - Security - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    CloudFlare offers instructions on how to install this Module at:

    GitHub - cloudflare/mod_cloudflare

    The latest installer includes support for EasyApache 4.

    This functionality is included by default with PHP in EasyApache 4. You can test this by sending a test email via a PHP script and noticing the "X-PHP-Script" entry in the message header.

    Let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks!
