Sometimes you have to know when to call it a night and retire gracefully. PHP 5.4 goes End of Life on September 14, 2015, which means it’s time for a change. With the release of EasyApache 3.32 on September 9th, we’ll be switching to PHP 5.5 as the default PHP version for fresh installations of cPanel & WHM.  Of course, we’ll continue to ensure that your favorite modules and PHP versions are updated and compatible, as always, and …
