Update scheduled for February 1, 2020
Any server meeting the following requirements will be automatically migrated from EasyApache 3 to EasyApache 4
The EasyApache 3 migration to EasyApache 4 will run automatically. You do not need to do anything to get this upgrade. To limit the risk of downtime, we suggest you migrate from EasyApache 3 to EasyApache 4 before the automatic conversion.
EasyApache 3 is blocking servers from upgrading to the most current LTS version of cPanel & WHM (Version 78). The autoconversion will result in healthy updated servers, and our customers won’t be left behind on old and unsupported versions.
Apache may break during this conversion which could leave websites broken. Items to consider:
Updated servers have lower security risks. An exposed flaw or vulnerability can cause a security crisis that needs to be addressed urgently without time deploy resources, resulting in long waits for technical support while servers are vulnerable to being exploited. Keeping servers up-to-date reduces last-minute panic.
If you upgrade to EasyApache 4 now, you will be able to see if your servers are affected by any of these issues and will still be able to roll back to EasyApache 3 while you apply a fix. This will minimize or eliminate any possible downtime for websites on your servers.
Customers running PHP 5.3 or older will not be migrated at this time.
Future EasyApache 3 updates may include servers running CloudLinux but that is not in the scope of this update.
