    Howdy,

    I notice that cpanel keeps on top of getting new releases of php updated in easyapache but why not the modules? One that specifically irks me is the curl module. It's still building 7.12 but current stable is 7.15.1 (which contains some pretty significant bug fixes).

    Is there any plan to update the module or will they stay until the version just isn't compat. with the latest php anymore?

    Go on, have a guess
    No idea, you'd have to contact cPanel and ask them. If you want to suggest something like that to them, you need to create an enhancement request in bugzilla:

    Why don't you just compile your own PHP? I do!

    sure, but does it taste good

    We do build it manually on some machines that require specific module or settings that easyapache doesn't offer but updating several hundred machines each time php puts out a new bug fix and you see why easyapache is 'easy'.

    /scripts/easyapache
    option 7
    php -> select new version
    save & exit
    it builds, installs and you are done... :)

    It just stands to reason that cpanel should put as high a priority on updates to the modules that they incorporate into php as php itself.
