    We want to upgrade to PHP5.

    We are going to inform all our customers about this upgrade a month before we accutaly do this upgrade.

    But! I do have some questions regarding the use of PHP5 with CPanel.

    1) Is it possible to compile more modules than listed in the easyapache build script?
    We would love to add modules like soap & mysqli.

    2) As I have read on this forum, there are some problems with the open_basedir
    protections with CPanel. Does this mean that we have to modify every new virtual
    host by hand in the httpd.conf file?

    3) Why is CPanel taking so F***ING much time for intergrating php5 into their software?
    The problem with cpanel is that everything is beta, beta, beta, testing and they never
    program something quick and decent.

    Personally, I'd stay away from Php5 for now. It is not compatible with php scripts written for older versions. We tried Php5 on several servers, and it was nothing but pain in the nick.

    Like I said, we are going to inform our customers that we do not longer support PHP4 and going to support PHP5, so we are not dealing with the problem that some scripts won't run.

    My main concern right now is CPanel it self.....

    Full integration is there, we are not holding anyone back from using it. The issue is that many many programs do not support PHP5.

    Try using some decent communications, especially in a public forum. I guess your mama never washed your mouth out with soap.

    I would reccomend highly against PHP5. The detriments outweigh the benifits of having it. Even warning your clients of the switch won't make a diffrence. By upgrading to PHP5 your just screwing your clients.

    I upgraded one of my servers to PHP5.0.3 and its been fine, one script/class did break but it took about 2 minutes to fix, apart from that it's been fine.


    I would also like to see mysqli added, I've not had much chance to play around with it, but from what I've read it looks great, anything that makes mysql queries faster has my vote.

    Happy Holidays
