Yesterday i used easyapache via WHM to rebuild my Apache PHP environment so to update from PHP 5.4.15 to 5.4.16.

I've been experiencing problems on my sites so i need to roll it back (rebuild) with PHP version 5.4.15, it's not an option. Only 5.4.16 of the 5.4.x branch exists.

Could you add the prior version to the list? Without it, there is no contingency in place to rollback to a known working version.

Ideally, you should have a rolling 3 minor versions.

since the update i've noticed time out issues, hanging, only via php sites.
i did find an error_log when i built it from the command line via easyapache saying pdo libraries failing to load.
everything was fine until the update.
i need to roll back the version to see if there was a problem introduced in 5.4.16
server error logs are not indicating a problem.

Hello :)

You will not typically see an option for the previous version of PHP if it's a minor version change. This is because minor version changes are often just bug fix releases by PHP. You can review the change log for PHP 5.4.16 at:

PHP 5 Change Log

Feel free to open a support ticket if you want us to review the error messages related to PDO in your error log:

You can post the ticket number here so we can keep this thread updated.

Thank you.

I've worked in corporate IT for over 20 years and you always have to have a backout/rollback plan before any upgrade takes place. Not heard of contingency?
It's naive to believe for a minute that the update won't introduce bugs that might cause issues.
PDO is not an issue, however, you should be providing a prior minor available to rebuild from, as PHP have in the past released updates that have caused issues and have rushed fixes out, but fixes in terms of days is not acceptable when customers are screaming at you, so you need to go back to the last stable update you were using... we can't as you don't provide the option.
