Could we get some clarification? The version of PHP 5.2 available in EasyApache right now is PHP 5.2.17. However, on the blog ( Impending End of Life Announcements from the EasyApache Team | cPanel Blog ), Scott states that it is PHP 5.2.9 that will be available via the Opt Mods page.
I'm sure that anyone who requires continued use of PHP 5.2 would want to be using PHP 5.2.17 rather than PHP 5.2.9. So I'd appreciate some clarification regarding which version of PHP 5.2 will be available once direct support for PHP 5.2 is removed from EasyApache.
Thanks for pointing that out. It's a mistake on my part. I'll fix my answer in the blog.
You are correct that PHP 5.2.17 will be the version moved to the Opt Mod page.
