    Hi guys,

    First time using cPanel, just started a new job and this is all new to me, so forgive my stupidity!

    I'm trying to upgrade PHP on our server and from what I can tell I have to do this from within the Software tab on the LHS of the WHM screen - annoyingly I don't seem to have this??

    The version is:

    WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.18.3-S21703
    CENTOS Enterprise 4.6 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

    and this is the cPanel stuff:

    General server information:
    Operating system Linux
    Service Status Click to View
    Kernel version 2.6.19.2-grsec
    Machine Type i686
    Apache version 1.3.37 (Unix)
    PERL version 5.8.8
    Path to PERL /usr/bin/perl
    Path to sendmail /usr/sbin/sendmail
    Installed Perl Modules Click to View
    PHP version 4.4.6
    MySQL version 4.1.22-standard-log
    cPanel Build 11.18.3-STABLE 21703
    Theme cPanel X v2.6.0
    Documentation Click to View
    cPanel Pro 1.0 (RC1)

    Am I missing something dreadfully obvious or am I simply too retarded ;) Graphic Designer with mediocre techy experience here, haven't done too much server side stuff for a couple of years now so I'm a tad out of my depth, any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks,

    Jon

    You don't have the software tab or "Apache Update" under the software tab?

    That is strange.. you are not a reseller are you?

    Nope, nothing like that at all, it's rather confusing haha

    Also no, small advertising agency :)

    I'm trying to work out what the hell is going on, everything seems pretty much up to date and all the other options seem available, it's just that one. I might speak to the hosting company and see if they've done something odd?

    ok, I'm really confused now, I just looked at the WHM demo on the cPanel website and I can't see Software on that either??????

    Oh lordy, what have I done haha

    That is not a root WHM panel in the demo. Do you have root access to the server? If not, you are probably using the WHM for resellers just like their demo. You are not going to be able to upgrade Apache/PHP MySQL with that.

    Hmmmmm, that could be the case, at the moment I'm not logging in as root.....that makes perfect sense actually!

    Must hunt down root access :)

    Thanks dude, I've kinda replaced 2 people at my company (tech guy and designer) and am trying to get up to speed with what they've put in place - seems that it's all over the shop and may take a bit to get back in order - the fun ;)

    Really appreciate the help!

    You mentioned contacting your web hosting company. They have the root access you seek.
