    We already have several other threads on PHP 5.2.10 and PHP 5.3.0
    already posted in this forum community that have a lot more information
    and both of these new PHP version releases.

    My company also independantly reviewed the new PHP releases ...

    As you will see in our other posts, we already gave our full approval on
    upgrading to PHP 5.2.10 and have already recommended that everyone
    upgrade as soon as they can; Those who are comfortable with manual
    compiling can go ahead and upgrade to PHP 5.2.10 right now and I can
    tell you first hand that it works very well. Those who don't know how
    to manually compile should be able to update soon after Cpanel releases
    their own upgrade path to be able to update to PHP 5.2.10 from EasyApache.

    Regarding, PHP v5.3.0, we did not give our recommendation as we found
    that the new release broke a lot of scripts and has some significant
    migration issues that could make for a few headaches for some
    administrators who want to upgrade PHP. For this reason, we
    recommended that server administrators wait a while to upgrade even
    after cPanel opens up a likely soon coming upgrade path to PHP v5.3.0

    McAfee and SecurityMatrix are now both reporting sites out of PCI Compliance with servers operating 5.2.9.

    Good! More incentive for everyone to upgrade to at least 5.2.10

    I think 5.3.0 is going to take a bit to make the transition since it has
    a greater potential to break client scripts and run into backwards
    compatibility / migration issues but I don't see any reason why
    everyone can't make the jump at least to 5.2.10 as the jump to
    that is pretty clean thus far pretty smooth going.

    PHP v5.2.10 can be manually compiled very easily and works very well
    with all the Cpanel servers I have personally upgraded and tested and
    my company has done far more extensive testing and found it to be
    a very good release. Those who do not want to wait for Cpanel to get
    the update out, can go ahead and manually install it now:

    ** open up a phpinfo() screen and get your current configure options

    Code:
    # cd /usr/local/src
    # wget http://us3.php.net/get/php-5.2.10.tar.gz/from/this/mirror
    # tar zxvf ./php-5.2.10.tar.gz
    # chown -R root:root php-5.2.10
    # cd php-5.2.10
    # ./configure **put your current options from phpinfo() here**
    # make
    # make test
    # make install
    
    I also like to go make a backup copy of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf
    before manually installing PHP just so I can roll back to the original
    Apache configuration without any changes.


    Regarding the other new release ...

    PHP v5.3.0 is a different story. We have noted a great many popular
    scripts currently broken because of backwards compatibility issues and
    items to address that will mean a slower migration path for most so
    at this time, we don't recommend an immediate jump to PHP 5.3.0
    and I would wait till most script authors release new versions of their
    applications to address the changes made in PHP 5.3.0 before upgrading.

    Just wanted to comment that I had followed the steps that Spiral provided on some of our machines that we haven't seen any issues as of yet.

    I still wish cPanel would focus on the 5.2.10 version and get it in easyApache before looking at the 5.3.x which will cause issues as stated.

    PHP 5.2.10 is in EasyApache build number 4762.

    As I mentioned in the other thread, there's still one remaining issue where when PHP 5.2.10 is installed it may not be selectable in the WHM PHP and Suexec configuration interface.

    That problem has been fixed in Edge and Current, but still remains in Stable and Release. Rather than delaying 5.2.10 further, we've added an autofixer that corrects the problem on those systems. EasyApache will run the autofixer if necessary before it starts up.

    If you upgrade to 5.2.10 and find that the PHP and Suexec interface isn't working correctly, you can run the autofixer manually like this:

    /scripts/autorepair phpconfig

    Thanks for the update in this thread on that.

    May want to update the RSS feed on that for the changelog as nothing is posted in there at this time - maybe that's being done later tonight.

    I'll download and test through easyapache on one of my servers now and see what comes up.

    Thank you.

    As the build option for PHP 5.2.10 is finally added to EasyApache ...

    We did some testing last night and rebuilt a few servers using EasyApache
    and did not run into any problems downgrading and then upgrading back
    to PHP v5.2.10 again using EasyApache to install the new copy.

    Those of us who know how to manually compile have had PHP 5.2.10
    for a couple of weeks but now everyone else can finally join the fun
    and use /scripts/EasyApache or EasyApache from WHM to go ahead
    and upgrade their PHP installations to the new PHP 5.2.10! :D

    (Needless to say, don't forget to update Cpanel before trying to run EasyApache)
