    I am trying to find out exactly cpanel installs and what versions. Like apache/php/mysql. I understand they are custom, so I am trying to find out what versions/modules are available. We are considering cpanel to host our clients but need to find out if there any compatibility issues, such as we require mysql 5 for stored procedure support, etc. Is there somewhere with a list?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Heres what my cPanel installed without me changing a thing.

    PHP 4.4.6
    MySQL 5.0 (it is 4.1 but select 5.0 in the options to change)
    Apache 1.3.37
    Perl 5.8.7

    Anything else you need to know?

    Is there anyway to upgrade to php 5 or even 5.2? What does it use for a mailserver, any firewalling? Chrooted environment? Does it use Bind9? Can I install any packages available to me in the CentOS repos or do I have to use cpanel specific versions? Can I upgrade things like PHP myself (compile/install from repo).

    Thanks again,
    Steve

    cPanel uses the exim MTA, which we distribute. We also distribute RPMs for:

    Courier-imap
    Courier-pop3
    Pure-ftpd
    Proftpd


    You can use various versions of PHP: 4.x, 5.x You can compile your own manually or use the easyapache stuff to do it for you. A few things are disabled (excluded) via yum.conf, mainly stuff that conflicts with RPMs we distribute (as noted above). Otherwise you can install nigh anythign via yum. Firewalling we don't do (yet). We provide chrooted environments for SSH using the jailshell functionality.

    Kenneth im glad you brought in that about easyapache.
    In my easyapache on the apache update screen (yes im using the old one not the new buggy one)

    if i select any different PHP version it does not upgrade it.
    Any ideas? or is this a known issue

    I'm sorry that's happening. To clarify, do you mean:

    Code:
    shell$ php -v
    
    shows the wrong, older version, or is it what the users see in cPanel?

    With the latter issue it's merely a matter of stale cache files. Non-EDGE builds keep the cache files in /home/$user/.cpanel-datastore Look for a PHP related one and delete it. You can also enable a tweak setting that prevents the use of these cache files, but you might(probably) notice a higher load on your server since tha tinfo will be queried on every cPanel login.

    If it is the former issue, find every php binary on your system. It's possible an older one is simply higher in path precendence than what easyapache installs. With the Apache module, make certain the file is actually being replaced (make backup, remove file, build via easyapache, see if new one is in place).

    If none of the above works, let me know, along with the particular version of cPanel you are using.

    When i just choose a different version it says PHP has been updated to version 4.4.6 in easyapache.

    doesnt change it one bit, this has been the same in STABLE, RELEASE, and the latest edge which is 10395
