I guess I'm having trouble wrapping my head around all of this.
alt-php is CloudLinux's PHP, correct? It was available back with EasyApache3. It is still available with EasyApache4, correct? It also falls under the realm of PHP Selector
ea-php is cPanel's PHP. It is only available in EasyApache4. It falls under the realm of MultiPHP.
CloudLinux releases their own ea-php packages. Correct? I'm assuming these are based heavily on cPanel's ea-php but are patched with certain CloudLInux attributes. The CloudLinux ea-php packages supersede cPanel's ea-php packages. It's not possible to install cPanel's ea-php packages on a CloudLinux system. Is all of this correct?
I was of the understanding that a server needed to either use alt-php (PHP Selector) OR ea-php (MultiPHP) not both.
I'm not seeing where ea-php can be selected in the user's cPanel. But perhaps I'm missing something.
The only way I seem to be able to use ea-php for a user is if I disable their CageFS. Is that correct?
Is alt-php going to continue to be updated? Or is CloudLinux moving everything over to their ea-php system? If alt-php is going to be discontinued, then it would seem that I am missing some way of having ea-php in use WITH CageFS.
I'm just trying to figure out how all of this works. I'm sure I'm overthinking it a bit some where. But I'm having trouble connecting the dots.
I'll have to look at the ea-php system under CageFS in more detail later. I was not able to get it working when I tried it earlier this morning, although I didn't spend a lot of time on it.
It's really not as much of an issue, as long as alt-php is going to continue to be updated. Was the delay of alt-php 5.6.29 reaching production from testing of about a month, was that just an oversight?
As long as you will continue to release alt-php versions of PHP 5.6, PHP 7.0, and PHP 7.1 then this shouldn't be an issue, I'll just continue to use alt-php.
I thought that perhaps you had stopped developing in-life PHP packages for alt-php and perhaps moved to ea-php for this.
