Houston, TX –
cPanel, Inc. has released EasyApache 3.24. This version removes Apache 1.3/2.0, PHP 5.2, and mod_frontpage. As mentioned in Introducing EasyApache’s Optimal Profiles, these End of Life (EOL) items are no longer available in EasyApache.
These items have been removed for the following reasons:
- They are no longer supported by their respective developers.
- They include unpatched CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures).
- EasyApache provides the most up-to-date, supported versions of Apache (2.2/2.4) and PHP (5.4/5.5).
Keep in mind that viable alternatives to mod_frontpage exist, such as WebDAV and FTP. Also, PHP 5.2 and mod_frontpage are available as custom modules (“opt mods”).
Important: Starting May 11, 2014, EasyApache users running EOL cPanel & WHM versions (11.38 and older) will no longer receive EasyApache updates. These users will still be able to rebuild EasyApache using the latest release prior to May 11, 2014. A message will appear in the WHM user interface and command line interface warning EasyApache users of this change. EasyApache users running cPanel & WHM version 11.38 will not see this message until that version reaches EOL at the end of April 2014.
