For cPanel & WHM version 64

(Home >> Software >> EasyApache 4)

Overview

WHM's EasyApache 4 interface (Home >> Software >> EasyApache 4) allows you to update and install Apache, PHP, and other components of your web server.  For more information about the benefits of EasyApache, read our EasyApache 4 documentation. 

Note:

This interface does not display the exact package names. It displays them in a more user-readable format. The actual package names on the system start with the ea- prefix.
