    Hi.

    As the subject line asks, will EA3 see a security update for PHP 5.6.31, which itself is a security release? I'm forced to administer a CL5 box with cPanel 56 for reasons outside of my control. I have been reluctant to attempt migrating to EA4 due to constrained resources on that system.

    Please advise.

    Thanks,
    trane

    I would agree, but the information regarding the ability to migrate is mixed. Although EA4 migration appears to be an option in cPanel 56, it is my understanding that CL5 (CentOS 5) is NOT supported. As such, requiring an EA3 release seems a given. A new, CentOS 7 server migration cannot come fast enough!

    Cheers,
    trane

    Hi,

    Okay for that part, then meanwhile you are plan for new OS, if you want to run the latest version of PHP 5.6, then I would suggest you install it manually, combine it with suPHP and use it for your use as required through .htaccess and suPHP handler..

    Again: EA3 is not to be EOLed until 2018. As such, I would expect a security release of PHP 5.6 to trigger a security release of EA3. This is not a discussion of upgrading servers or circumventing cPanel 56 packages. It is a discussion of EA3.

    Yes, I had an email as follows overnight. However, this does not show up as available on my server and I am not aware of a way to manually force the easyapache 3 script to update since it updates itself outside of upcp (afaiaa)
