    I was going to rebuild apache to install some new extensions, but am nervous to do it because my current php version is not listed during the process. I currently have php 5.3.24 running. During EA build I am offered options for
    None
    5.2.9 END OF LIFE
    5.2.17 END OF LIFE
    5.3.27 END OF LIFE
    5.3.28 DEPRECATED
    5.4.24
    5.5.8 EXPERIMENTAL

    Ideally I would simply pick 5.4.24, however I believe that all my current mysql statements would not work with recent php versions. I do not have time to rewrite all the sql queries at the moment. My current version works fine, but I am not sure what to do to keep it as it is. All I really want to do is add mycrypt, pdo and pdo_mysql to the build, whilst keeping the php version as it is.

    cPanel removes legacy versions of PHP from EasyApache when more recently ones of the same minor version are available. If you're running 5.3.24, you should go to 5.3.28. Upping the release under the same minor version shouldn't really be an issue. The MySQL problems you're referring to aren't present until 5.5, nor enforced until 5.6.

    Hello :)

    I just wanted to add that it's always a good idea to keep your installation of PHP updated to the latest minor version available in EasyApache. As mentioned by the previous poster, you are not likely to experience any compatibility issues between PHP 5.3.24 and PHP 5.3.28, but you will get crucial security updates with the newer version.

    Thank you.
