    As the title already suggests I would like to know if the phpXX-build extensions in the extension list are required when provisioning in EA4. What is their purpose?

    I mention that I am using suPHP.

    Thanks!

    Hi @AndyB78


    Are you referencing the PHP extensions selected within the profile? Some for these are necessary but common extensions are enabled by default. Some frameworks have dependencies on some of these extensions/modules and you'll need to enable them in order for them to work correctly.

    The documentation on EA4 may be useful Introduction to EasyApache 4 - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

    Hi,

    When I am customizing a profile in EA4 and I am selecting the extensions for a specific PHP version, there is one "extension" called "phpxx-build" (for instance when I am selecting extensions for PHP 7.2 this extension it's called php72-build). What is this "extension" and is it needed/useful? When should we select it?

    Thanks!
