How to install EasyApache 3 on cPanel & WHM

Recommended Posts

How to install EasyApache 3 on cPanel & WHM 58?.

You all know that the fresh installations of cPanel & WHM 58 come with EasyApache 4 as the default web stack. However, EasyApache 3 is not completely removed out of cPanel as of now and therefore you’ll still be able to use it if you prefer. In this tutorial, I will explain how to install EasyApache 3 on cPanel & WHM 58.

Install EasyApache 3 on cPanel & WHM 58

We have to consider two different scenarios while dealing with this.

  1. Before cPanel installation.
  2. After cPanel installation.

Before cPanel installation

Consider you have a fresh server and about to start the cPanel installation. In this case, you just need to create a file named “install_legacy_ea3_instead_of_ea4” under “/etc” before you begin the cPanel & WHM installation process.

I.e,

touch /etc/install_legacy_ea3_instead_of_ea4

Now you can start the cPanel installation by following the steps given below.

yum update
cd /home/
wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest
sh latest

Just wait for the cPanel installer script to complete its installation and once it’s done, you can access the WHM panel with the following URL.

http://your-server-ip:2086
OR
http://your-host-name:2086

After cPanel installation

Suppose you have already installed cPanel and WHM with EasyApache 4 on your server and wish to switch back to EasyApache 3, please follow the steps given below.

mkdir -p /usr/local/apache.ea3/{conf,htdocs,bin}

Then run the following command.

/scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 --revert --run

This will migrate EasyApache4 to EasyApache3. If you run into any errors related to Apache after migrating, just compile EasyApache 3 once and this will fix all issues.

That’s it.

Note:

As per the cPanel team, the last version of cPanel & WHM to support EasyApache 3 will be version 62. Once version 62 goes End of Life in January of 2018, EasyApache 3 will receive no further updates and will be fully deprecated.

EasyApache 3 will be fully removed from cPanel & WHM version 64. So, if you are running EasyApache 3, you will be blocked from upgrading to v64 of cPanel & WHM.

EasyApache

cPanel & WHM installs EasyApache 4 (Home >> Software >> EasyApache 4) by default. If you wish to use EasyApache 3 (Home >> Software >> EasyApache 3) instead, create the /etc/install_legacy_ea3_instead_of_ea4 touch file before you begin the cPanel & WHM installation process.

If your chosen version of EasyApache fails to build, the installer will continue and you must troubleshoot the issue.

Note:

If your system runs CloudLinux™, the system installs the CloudLinux EasyApache 4 repository and the default CloudLinux profile. Systems that do not run CloudLinux install cPanel & WHM's EasyApache 4 repository and default profile.
