    I've noticed that installing apache + php + mysql directly from the RPM database or yum is really A LOT faster than easyapache, but some things are more difficult to setup or do... at least I'm not that "pro" to do them.

    Wouldn't be really a lot faster to create a RPM database for cPanel and you put there the centos / rhel / fc rpm files so we can install php and apache via the rpm files ?

    It would also be a lot more dynamical, because if you want to (for example) add the imap module for php, now you have to recompile everything which can take from 20 min up to 2 hours depending on the equipment and connection availables. If you do it on an rpm based package (eg. yum install php-imap) it would take less than 2 minutes to do and it wont break all web access as easyapache does (unless it fails to install).

    What about an EasyApache 4, superfast ?

    It could work if you don't need some extremely fancy stuff.
    Apache 2 / 2.2, with php4 / 5 support can be easily added via rpm.

    Apache should remain online and operational for all but a few seconds during the EasyApache build process. If you are experiencing broken configurations or extended outages during the EasyApache process, please update your cPanel/WHM to the latest builds. If this behavior persists after doing so, please submit a support ticket so our technical analysts can determine why this is happening.
