    When my WHM will update PHP with Cpanel update? When you will add it to there?

    Thanks!

    You will have to update Apache/PHP yourself. You will be able to do this once cPanel releases a new buildapache on layer1.

    You'll need to run /scripts/easyapache and choose one of the options.

    The current buildapache (easyapache for the lazy) doesn't contain the latest release of PHP.

    So I'm guessing that when this new version of easyapache comes out, it will show up when I log into WHM?

    I'm new to cPanel (from Ensim) and am excited about the possibilities of replacing all those Ensim boxes with cPanel. Easy of administration in the easyapache way would be awesome.

    Once updated when you click "Update Apache" under "Software" in WHM (http://www.yourdomain.com:2086) you will see it mentions PHP 4.3.3. Right now it only mentions PHP 4.3.2. There will be an update soon. I hope.

    Major bug fixes, especially around the use of open_basedir which cPanel rolled out as part of some 'security tweaks' in WHM.

    Here's the complete list:

    I await in anticipation for 4.3.3 to be included in buildapache. :)

    Why are you in such a hurry? When we upgraded from 4.3.1 to 4.3.2 our users were screaming in anger. Why? Because it affected so many of their scripts and they had to fix their script configs to accomodate for the upgraded php. We will not do that again. The question is why would that be. If php was backward compatible there should have been no reason to see users upset with the upgrade. I only shudder to think what will happen when we are FORCED though easyapache to upgrade to 4.3.3 the next time we recompile. I hope that this time they keep the downgrade to 4.3.2 alone so that those who dont want to upgrade dont have to. :rolleyes:

    I think it is included now. Yesterday's easyapache includes the option to downgrade to PHP 4.3.2, so I assume the new default is 4.3.3.

    I just ran build apache on a test server, but since I included PostgreSQL support in the PHP config it errored on the php compile saying that I needed to specify the correct PostgreSQL directory. However, I did note that it did download the php 4.3.3 tar, so buildapache does include 4.3.3 now. However, there is an error the buildapache script that will not allow you to include postgresql support with the php install.

    I ran this buildapache from the Update Apache link in WHM.

    Here are the specific errors that I got:

    configure: error: Cannot find libpq-fe.h. Please specify correct PostgreSQL installation path
    make: *** No rule to make target `clean'. Stop.
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.

    I used easyapache a few mintutes ago, caused a dissaster and recovered again:
    * After the first run, Apache wouldn't start with SSL enabled.
    * I then updated to latest Release version and tried again. This time it worked OK!

    I must admit I was chicken and choose to downgrade to PHP 4.3.2 in fear of any possible compatibility problems with phsuexec. Did not try PostgreSQL support.

    Hey Marty,

    I had this same exact problem, but I figured out how to fix it. Thought I'd post here in case anyone else is having the same errors.

    The problem is that the postgresql-devel RPM isn't installed. If you run /scripts/postgresinstall again, it will automatically install this RPM. You can then install PostgreSQL support under PHP without a hitch.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks,
    Erica
