Introducing EasyApache’s Optimal Profiles

We are happy to announce the upcoming release of a new Profile page that will make EasyApache quicker and easier to use.

This new Profile page will include cPanel & WHM’s new Optimal Profiles. The purpose of the new profiles is to ensure that you will receive a safe and secure EasyApache build without having to access the Short or Exhaustive Options list. Each new Optimal Profile will include a selection of modules to match the current PHP version we recommend, and an Apache version that will deliver safe and reliable performance.

We will also introduce profiles that utilize the advantages of the CloudLinux operating system. One of the recommendations we make for CloudLinux users is to use the Apache MPM ITK module. This upcoming release will add the MPM ITK module to EasyApache. We will provide links to learn more about CloudLinux, and an opportunity to upgrade to the operating system.

Server administrators will continue to have access to the Short and Exhaustive Options list. You will still be able to create new profiles, customize any profile you save, and use previous profiles.

Below, we have included wire frame drafts of our new EasyApache Profile pages. Please note: These drafts do not reflect a finalized product and are subject to change. We welcome your comments and suggestions.

    Hi Joby,

    You are right that you’ll still see all the modules and features that you’re accustomed to using in EasyApache. It is possible to customize an optimal profile as well. The new profile page will allow you to modify any of the default profiles provided by cPanel and you’ll then be able to save your modifications as an entirely new customized profile.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions!


    The optimal profile looks good. I assume this includes all features and modules typically needed in a hosting environment or needed by end users. Is it possible to customize this optimal profiles by adding our own required modules to it? Will that be saved to this profile or we can generate them as a customized profile?
