    Does anyone have step by step instructions on how to upgrade PHP from 4.3.2 to 4.3.3 without breaking anything? Or should I want until a cPanel update has it in?

    If you have a test box go for it. Otherwise it would probably be best just to wait.

    No test box here, *waits* hehe.

    How long do you think it'll be until cPanel provide an upgrade for it?

    Yeah, I don't think I'd attempt it unless I had lots of time to fuddle around. Worse case is that you would have to just start deleting and reinstall cPanel. heheh... not the brightest idea on a production box.

    It's hard to say. Only the guys at cPanel could answer that.
    But if I was to place a bet. I'd say my wild guess would be within 72 hours for EDGE release.
    :)

    You can not really break anything by upgrading to PHP 4.3.3 yourself, and if you do it is simple to go back.

    It should be simple to upgrade to 4.3.3 (I have not done it yet and would probally wait till it is proven stable)

    1. Grab the config info from phpinfo.php script

    IE:

    Create a file called phpinfo.php

    <?php
    phpinfo();
    ?>

    2. Copy and past the entire config section then do a find replace and replace all ' with blanks.

    3. Download php 4.3.3 from php.net

    4. extract the file (tar -zxvf php-4.3.3.bla.bla.tar.gz)

    5. cd php.4.3.3.bla.bla....

    6. ./configure (copy your options here)

    7. if config look good do

    8. make ; make install ; restart apache

    That's pretty much it

    Agreed. I have run into a couple times on boxes where it just ends up being quicker re-installing cPanel compared to spending too long figuring out why something isn't working which is my preference. But Cpanel is so easy and quick to reinstall if you have good backups. :D
