hello,

I've reading through the docs and some of the recent posting here regarding upgrading to EasyApache 4 soon. Would like to double check a few items before we proceed with the upgrade.

We would need to upgrade from Apache 2.2 to 2.4 and where are currently running PHP 5.6.30 so we should be good there.

1) Do we need to make any changes to continue to use SSI we have a couple of accounts that use it.
2) Will we need to change anything to continue to use .htaccess for password protected directories?
3)Will we still be able to execute CGI scripts outside the cgi-bin folder?
4)All our SSL certs are from Godaddy will there be any issues with those?
5)We don't use Cloudlnux or Outside vendor Modsecurity just the std., Modsecurity2
6) Do the location of the domlogs change after installing Easyapache 4?

We run only stable releases for nightly updates.

Appreciate any feedback for changes that maybe need to keep downtime to a min.

Thanks

Hello @mickalo,

1) Do we need to make any changes to continue to use SSI we have a couple of accounts that use it.
Could you verify if you took any special steps to setup SSI for these accounts?

2) Will we need to change anything to continue to use .htaccess for password protected directories?
These rules will carry over and continue to work on EasyApache 4.

3)Will we still be able to execute CGI scripts outside the cgi-bin folder?
Please see the following document for information about how this works:

How to Enable Additional CGI Scripts - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

4)All our SSL certs are from Godaddy will there be any issues with those?
SSL certificates should continue to work without manual intervention.

6) Do the location of the domlogs change after installing Easyapache 4?
Yes, it's:

/var/log/apache2/domlogs/

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you.

regrading item#1 for SSI all that was done was add the following into the .htaccess file:
Code:
AddHandler server-parsed .htm

well got one other question about Easyapache 4 as will need to install apache 2.4 prior to changing from EA3 to EA4 so is it recommend in EA3 to us the Basic Apache 2.4 Profile or just update our existing custom profile to build apache 2.4 instead of 2.2 ?

Want to migrate to EA4 this week sometime hopefully.

thanks,

Hello,

You can use your existing custom profile and switch Apache from 2.2 to 2.4.

Thank you.
