    Hello,

    I'm a bit confused on which to use or should both be used?
    I have read docs from CL here. That will be quite confusing for customers that has two choices.

    If CL's Select PHP version would work to change for each domain and have a MultiPHP ini editor it would be preferred.
    But we cannot only use cPanel's MultiPHP because of they cannot provide support of older php versions.

    What does hosting companies do in this tricky and messy situation?

    EasyApache 4 if you are using you will not need to cl php-selector.

    CloudLinux is integrated into the cpanel multi-php system.

    You can remove the cl php-selector.

    Hello,

    Would you mind referencing specific parts of that document you would like clarification about?

    Thanks!

    You should worn the original poster that "removing php-selector" isn't something that should be done unless he/she has already converted / modified settings of all accounts to use the MultiPHP stuff. To my knowledge, none of the PHP Selector settings (individual PHP versions, php.ini file edits, etc) are automatically ported over to MultiPHP. As such, if you are somebody who has quite a few (to hundreds) of accounts configured using PHP Selector right now, you really do NOT want to simply switch over to using MultiPHP and you do NOT want to delete PHP Selector. Your customers would hate you and you'd lose nights of sleep trying to scramble and get all of the accounts set up with MultiPHP and editing php.ini stuff to set sane values, etc.

    easyapache4 is way to confusing

    I just feel it will be difficult to explain to our customers on what and how this will work.
    I also agree with ikillbill, EA4 is quite confusing.

    So right now I'm not quite sure what to do and what we should choose our customers to have access to....

    I encourage you to post feedback regarding the use of PHP Selector with EasyApache 4 on the existing CloudLinux forum thread opened for this at:

    MultiPHP or Select PHP version (CL) ?

    Thank you.

    Bumping this thread since Cloudlinux have changed their URL for their new forum. Here is the new link:
    MultiPHP or Select PHP version (CL) ?

    But I also read from CL team or Igor some days ago that they are planning on removing PHP Selector in the future, but only when cPanel's MultiPHP has the same "standard" as PHP Selector.

    What's your thoughts on this? Will we see MultiPHP getting the same features as PHP Selector this year? Next year?

    Don't expect MultiPHP catch up with PHPSelector in modules selection flexibility in 2017. It is very hard to predict what will happen in 2018.

    The last thing I remember hearing from the CL team regarding the long term viability of PHP Selector is not quite what you've stated. It was stated, on their forum, by one of the CL team [probably igor himself if I recall], that if MultiPHP ever got to the point where it provides everything that PHP Selector does, with the same ease and reliability, then and only then would they [CL] consider doing away with PHP Selector. MultiPHP was a long way from being anything like PHP Selector back when he made that statement, and things haven't changed that much. I would seriously doubt that CL would drop PHP Selector for quite some time [years], if ever.

    If you truly ready something recent [within the past few months] where the CL Team stated that they would remove PHP Selector, please provide the link.

    I asked Igor about this in a webinar he had, don't remember which one it was as he has had some lately :)
    But he said PHP Selector would be removed and integrated with MultiPHP when cPanel have improved it to their "standards".
    Yes, that may still take years as we know how fast cPanel works on things that matter :-D

    Igor read this thread:) He wrote some information here today!

    He says:
    "We recognize that cPanel has been making great progress in this area with MultiPHP, and we foresee MultiPHP taking over PHPSelector’s functionality. We will continue supporting it, fix bugs, and even enhance some functionality, but we don't plan to actively develop it. We will fully support PHPSelector until MultiPHP has all the features that PHPSelector already has. Once feature parity will be completely achieved by MultiPHP, we will develop a script to convert existing customers of PHPSelector to MultiPHP to provide a seamless transition. Note, that you can still be able to use HardenedPHP with cPanel’s MultiPHP."
