    Good evening.

    I'm a layman my job being ecommerce, so even though I'm passionate about administering a server, I obviously have gaps. I read with interest :

    How to Install or Uninstall EasyApache 4 - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation for the migration of 3 to 4 but I confess that my fear is to lose something.

    So I need your advice.

    Here is my current configuration:

    Code:
    Basic Apache 2.4 (1) Profil
    
    Apache 2.4
    Asis (Plus d’informations)
    Deflate (Plus d’informations)

    Sockets (Plus d’informations)
    TTF (FreeType) (Plus d’informations)
    Zip (Plus d’informations)
    Zlib (Plus d’informations)
    Additional OptMods
    Mod Ruid2 0.9.8 (Plus d’informations)
    Mod Security 2.9.0 (Plus d’informations)
    +

    Code:
    Default PHP Version (.php files)    5
    PHP 5 Handler    dso
         
    Apache suEXEC    on
    Apache Ruid2    on
    
    According to you with this configuration in Easyapache3, I have any risk in launching the command / scripts / migrate_ea3_to_ea4 --run?

    My second question is, how long will it take?

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I don't see anything that should result in compatibility issues in EasyApache 4, but we can't tell you that you won't face any issues at all, as there's always a small possibility of unforeseen issues. The amount of time it takes depends on your server's hardware. It shouldn't take longer than an hour on most systems.

    Thank you.

    One last thing, if we see a problem, will returning to EASYAPACHE 3 at least restore the stability we had?

    Yes, you can revert back to same EasyApache 3 build profile if you converted from EA3 to EA4 with the instructions at:

    How to Install or Uninstall EasyApache 4 - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

    However, generally it's a good idea to first see if we can help resolve whatever issue you are facing with EasyApache 4.

    Thanks!

    Thank you. Our only fear is losing data.

    Hello,

    The build process won't manipulate your website data. That's stored within the account's home directory and isn't affected.

    Thank you.

    Hello. We upgraded to EA4 and it looks like it has gone well.

    So we have imported Basic Apache 2.4 (1) custom Contains converted from an EA3 profile,

    Questions :

    - We can not add the different PHP Handlers DSO, FastCGI Process Manager (FPM), for tests (on EA3 we were with DSO)

    - We used on EA3 opcache, but if we understood correctly, this one does not exist in EA4? Which module do you advise us instead?

    Thank you.

    You can only run one DSO package at a time. The DSO handler for PHP 7.0 is associated with the ea-php70-php package when configuring profiles via "WHM >> EasyApache 4". You would need to enable this package and provision the profile for enable DSO for one version of PHP. You will then see it as an option under the "PHP Handlers" Tab in "WHM >> MultiPHP Manager".

    The following document explains how PHP-FPM works with EasyApache 4 on cPanel versions 60 and newer:

    PHP-FPM and EasyApache 4 - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Mod_Fcgid isn't available until cPanel version 62, and it's availability and usage is explained on the top comment at:

    EasyApache 4 mod_fcgid

    You can see a list of PHP options available with EasyApache 4, including OPcache, at:

    PHP Options - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

    Thanks!
