    Check the WHM under Update Apache

    When you click on it, it will display you various options to select,.. amongst them you will see 4.3.7
    this is current as of June 4th, 2004.

    Login to WHM, then edit your Update Options to let you update cPanel to the newest EDGE build. After you do that, run a cPanel update.

    After the cPanel update is done, click Upgrade Apache link in WebHost Manager, you will see alot of settings here, uncheck your current PHP version, and check 4.3.7. Click on Build Apache, and after a few minutes it will be done. :)

    I replied in the other post,. But just thought of another way to do that.

    locate the easyapache download/temp directory

    When you run easyapache it downloads file to it..
    Find that directory
    if you type: ps fax during the run of easyapache you will likely to see the path where it stores/download the files.

    Then, go to that directory.. (after the run completes and you know that you are still stuck on 4.3.5) and delete all files in it.
    Sometimes the php download is skipped if it finds the php download installs from previous downloads.

    Good luck.

    In WHM, leave Php Module (Version 4.3.3) at the top checked
    Then check off what version to install, this is the only way that works for us.

    The problem i have is that easyapache is going thru the process of loading 4.3.7, ive sat and watched it, but at the end it starts up 4.3.3 or 4.3.5 on these 2 servers....

    I just tried upgrading PHP and am having the same problems. Here's what I've done and all methods have failed to upgrade (instead it went from 4.3.6 to 4.3.3 and is stuck):

    • /scripts/easyapache
    • Update Apache in WHM and selected Php Module (Version 4.3.3) and Version 4.3.7
    • Update Apache in WHM and selected just Version 4.3.7
    • Update Apache in WHM and selected just Php Module (Version 4.3.3)

    Nothing I do will make it upgrade to 4.3.7. Does anybody have any other ideas? I'm running FreeBSD.

    Make sure the PHP compile is going OK. That's the problem I had last night (it didn't like pspell)

    It turns out it was bitching about Sablot XSLT being checked. I don't know why it wouldn't compile if this option was selected, but it's working now without it. I wish they would make the compile show an error at the end so we can easily tell why it wouldn't upgrade.

    I wish that was the reason why 2 of mine wont upgrade.

    We did 12 servers and 10 went up fine and 2 wont... ones stuck on 4.3.3 and the other on 4.3.4 and all were setup identically

    I've been following the various threads here on upgrading PHP for the past three months; nothing I've tried has worked using the scripts or WHM's utility. I expect the only way I'll be able to do it is to just compile it manually; but I hate to try that since I'm not that skilled with RPMs. Somewhere I saw the instructions to download and compile from source. I may try that.
