    I have never used Easy Apache but I know I need to. I have been hesitant because I know it can potentially cause problems on a production server that is currently running 5.4.45.

    Right now my test environment at home uses 5.6.10. I plan on upgrading the production server to 5.6.21. I have read in the documentation that there are provisions where Easy Apache will roll-back if the install encounters problems.

    My concern, however, is more about with my PHP code, in the rare chance that 5.6.21 may cause problems. If it does, would I just run Easy Apache again and go back to 5.4.45? Or, because this older version is marked "End of Life", will it not let me make a new build with it?

    Just trying to be cautious. Thank you for your patience.

    yes you can you can make 5.4.45 note if you are all ready running 5.6.10 in your test involvement and it works upgrading to 5.6.21
    will not cause any issues
