Overview

WHM's Migration section of WHM's EasyApache 4 interface (WHM >> Home >> Software >> EasyApache 4) displays your system's version of EasyApache. The EasyApache 4 Migration Tool allows you to migrate to and from EasyApache 3 (EA3) and EasyApache 4 (EA4). You can access the EasyApache 4 Migration Tool feature from the EasyApache 3 interface (WHM >> Home >> Software >> EasyApache 3).

Important:

  • We plan to deprecate EasyApache 3 on December 31, 2018. To migrate to EasyApache 4, click the EasyApache 4 Migration Tool link at the top of the interface.
  • This section of the interface will not appear unless you select either the EDGE or CURRENT tier in WHM's Update Preferences interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences). If you wish to migrate from EA3 to EA4 and you select either the RELEASE or STABLE tiers, you must use the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 script.
