Since the release of EasyApache 3.24.11, you may have noticed a variation of the following warning message when starting EasyApache:
Your server is currently on cPanel & WHM version 188.8.131.52. This version of cPanel & WHM has reached End of Life.
cPanel & WHM version 184.108.40.206 will continue to receive updates to EasyApache for 90 days after February 10, 2014. To receive EasyApache updates after May 11, 2014, you must update the cPanel & WHM version on this server.

If you receive this warning message, then your server is running a version of cPanel & WHM that has reached End of Life (EOL)*. We will continue to provide EasyApache updates for EOL versions of cPanel & WHM until May 11, 2014. However, we strongly encourage users running EOL versions of cPanel & WHM to upgrade before this date.
If your server runs an EOL version of cPanel & WHM after May 11, 2014, then the functionality of EasyApache will change in the following ways:
- – Your server will no longer receive EasyApache updates, which include Apache and security patches.
- – You will no longer be able to update or change components within EasyApache.
- – You will only be able to rebuild the last successful profile.
For example, after May 11, 2014, a server running cPanel & WHM version 11.36 and Apache version 2.2 will not be able to rebuild EasyApache with Apache version 2.4. Even minor version updates will not be possible after this date. For instance, an update from PHP 5.4.24 to 5.4.25.
These changes to EasyApache functionality will allow the EasyApache development team to provide you with the following improvements:
- – Quicker EasyApache release cycles
- – More feature development
- – More bug fixes
- – Fewer EasyApache security issues related to the support of out-of-date software

*On February 28, 2014, cPanel & WHM versions 11.36 and earlier reached EOL. In April 2014, cPanel & WHM version 11.38 will also reach EOL.
