    Hi,

    I have been told that if I try to install a PHP extension manually (in this case APC), it may crash cPanel/WHM. Is there any truths to these claims, or can I safely install the extension on my server?

    Thanks in advance!

    If the installation is done improperly, you could have a non-functional PHP installation. However, it is unlikely that you would crash cPanel/WHM itself. Remember cPanel/WHM is served by cpsrvd, not Apache. Therefore even if Apache goes down, cPanel/WHM will remain functional.
