    yo all ;)
    how "safe" is it to install PHP5 in cPanel's apache update?...safe at all to just click it instead of v 4.4.3 and rebuild? ive heard that its notgood, but then in that case, why would cPanel put it as an option? :rolleyes:
    thanks for your response!

    ahh guys, i figured it out, had a friend teach me!
    just so 'yall know, heres some instructions for anyone in need:

    in ssh, on linux, do: /scripts/easyphp
    select option 6 when you come to a menu.
    go to the php option once your in the main setup.
    un-check your current ver, looks like: (*) 4.4.4, so select that, and hit enter.
    the * should be gone,
    now select the version you would like, and the start should appear.
    then hit exit, then exit again, and yes to saving, and it'll start building!

    note: it takes a 'lil while to build (about 30 - 45 min)

    thanks!

    Oh good grief. Is it safe? LOL

    PHP is one of the easiest things to build on the whole system whether
    you use EasyApache, EasyPHP, or just manually build (preferred) ....

    Side FYI: We are using PHP 5.1.6 on all servers with SuPHP currently
