    This thing has been bothering me for a while so I'd thought to post to see if anyone can comment on it.

    - Why does ea3 builds everything twice ? I see a dryrun and then a final one, makes no sense to me, takes up mine and CPU time to finish. Is it for some kind of error preventing ?
    - Why does ea3 builds everything again even if I want just to add zend optimizer or ioncube or tomcat or any option that doesn't require something else to be recompiled. e.g I want to add ioncube and zend optimizer, it will go trough recompiling apache, php4/php5, everything else I might have, and then just add it to php.ini. It's a total waste of time for a such trivial operation.
    - I miss the feature from ea, where you could "skip apache build if up2date". What happened to that ? I'd really want for it to build just what's necessary not what it thinks (i.e all) it's necessary.

    Is this all in order to make EA3 idiot-proof-friendly ?

    TIA.

    Yes. This is to ensure in the dry run that the build will be successful before it is actually attempted and applied to your server. It would be a bad thing to have a production web server without a properly functioning HTTP daemon.

    Enabling Tomcat does require Apache to be recompiled with mod_jk support.

    As far as recompiling just to modify php.ini, I know there have been issues where enabling either/both of those applications has resulted in broken servers. I would assume this goes back to ensuring EasyApache results in a working Apache and PHP before applying that to a production server.

    Yes. There are some command line options not listed in the help file. If you feel confident with your Apache/PHP management skills, you should submit a support ticket and our techs can provide you with information regarding the command line parameters that are not documented in the help screen.
