    As described here, the migration to easyapache4 looks so straightforward.
    But I cant get around this error:

    Code:
    /$ /scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 --run
    Cannot write to terminal: No such device or address at /scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 line 86.
    Same on 2 different servers.
    Please help me, I cant find anything around.

    Hi,

    Did anyone work out why this problem was occurring (and ideally a solution)? I'm getting almost exactly the same error when typing "/scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 --run" of...
    ...when I check the 'record of this process' all I can see is...

    Hello,

    The issue in the previous support ticket was not reproducible, and the command worked successfully when tested by one of our analysts. Feel free to open a support ticket so we can take a closer look, and post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.

    Hi all,

    I think I've been able to work out the cause & solution...
    Previously when I had been attempting to run the command I had been using WinSCP via their Command Line terminal I was getting the error as per my previous post. I normally connect via WinSCP due to the graphic interface being handy, and normally using command line also works fine without any problems.

    I then decided to connect via SSH using Putty. Upon running the same command it succeeded in proceeding and allowing me to upgrade from easyapache 3 to 4.

    So the problem appeared to lie with the software being using to run the command line. It might be useful to add a note to How to Install or Uninstall EasyApache 4 on the Command Line - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation about recommending Putty to avoid 'cannot write to...' errors, as I suspect when Easyapache3 becomes fully depreciated a few more people may encounter this when attempting to upgrade.
