    Hello,

    i use Cloudlinux 7 and did yesterday the update to cPanel 11.56 and also did the installation of EasyApache 4 for Cloudlinux (Beta: EasyApache 4 released for CloudLinux)

    i did: sh cloudlinux_ea3_to_ea4 --convert --mod_lsapi --altphp


    i see now, that there is MultiPHP and also Cloudlinux PHP Selector running on the same system.

    Which one should i use now? Should I deactivate some of them? If yes, which one and how?
    Can you give me more details about future use of php selector? i heared it will be deprecated in future? is this right information?

    Would be nice if you could help me out with this topic.

    Hello :),

    At this time I would suggest you to use Cloudlinux PHP Selector because they are still working on EasyApache 4 to fix some issues which they are facing so it's better to use Cloudlinux php selector at this time.

    Above link is broken.
    Were getting a few clients using both selectors and mixing up the configs, ie php 7 on cloudlinux selector and 5.6 on cPanels multiPHP manager. What's the advice here and does one setting take precedence over the other?

    I am a big fan of Cloudlinux and PHP Selector.

    I think it offers a simpler point and click interface than the cPanel Multi PHP selector, but possibly at the expense at the easy and advanced customization of the ini files.

    Personally, I have disabled the MultiPHP Manager and the MultiPHP INI Editor in my feature lists so that my clients only have access to the Cloudlinux controls.

    I think it is very much a matter of assessing your clients and their understanding and experience, and then deciding which feature set (or both) is going to be of most benefit to them and your business.

    infopro, thanks for fixing the link. We had no idea PHP Selector is not compatible with PHP-FPM !

    rpvw, Yes we prefer the CloudLinux php selector also, though I read on CL forums that cPanel's version will probably win the battle :(

    I have been working with MultiPHP for a few weeks and other than a few little issues with some extensions which have now already been fixed, everything is great!
