    Hello everyone,

    I have a general question about cPanel release trees (and changing them) and Apache updates.

    I'm curious if there are any reported issues moving servers from Current/Stable to Release?

    Also, I'm curious if there is anything that may break with updating Apache 2.0.x to 2.2.x?

    Thanks a ton!

    Each tier can have specific bugs with it, but RELEASE is actually the recommended tier due to the fact that's the one typically used for first time installs. Of note, CURRENT is not the same as STABLE. The tiers are as follows:

    EDGE (not production worthy)
    CURRENT
    RELEASE
    STABLE

    As for Apache 2.0 to 2.2, I would highly recommend updating to Apache 2.2, since Apache 2.0 isn't actively supported any longer. Apache 2.4 will be added to EasyApache at some point in the future, and Apache 2.0 will likely be removed when that happens.

    Thanks!
