    Hi,

    I have old custom apps, that use php 4.29. I got a new server, and the server is centos 7. Can cpanel still install 4.29 php?

    Also how do I exclude mail files from being transferred in account migrations. I only want the public_html folder.?

    EDIT. Hmmm, I just read on some forum that if you have a reseller account and you use that to do the transfer instead of root, it will only transfer the public_html folder. Is this true? If it is...this is what I will do instead.

    EDIT. PHP 5.29, NOT 4.29.

    Hi,

    EasyApache 3 supports PHP 5.5 without problems. Are you specifically needing PHP 5.5.29, or will PHP 5.5 work? PHP 5.5 on both EA3 and EA4 is now at 5.5.34, so it's a little bit newer, but minor versions rarely impact scripts like that.

    No I need 5.2.9. Just order a new server, and about to buy a cpanel license. My main concern is the account migration. I have old accounts from up to the year 2001, that have switched servers like 6+ times. Everytime they I migrated the accounts, it dragged a long all the old mail and stuff that I don't need. I just want the public_html folders, account stuff (names, passwords, ftp, etc), and mysql databases.

    In fact, I wrote about this here somewhere. I have a problem with one account in particular, that has 50gbs of spam. It can't be deleted, because it just freezes the whole server. I am too lazy to manually download via ftp, and then upload via ftp, all my accounts (over 100gbs, 20 accounts). So that's why I am inquiring about how to account transfer just the public_html.

    Thank you. Need this done by 8 days.

    just do an account transfer skipping the /home directory then use rsync with the exclude flsg
    IE: rsync -avHz --exclude=mail/ ip:/home/username/ /home/username

    Hello :)

    You can find information on how to install PHP 5.2 in EasyApache 3 at:

    Custom Modules - EasyApache - cPanel Documentation

    However, note it's unsupported and we highly discourage it's use, as indicated in the above document.

    Thank you.
