cPanel & WHM no longer develops EasyApache 3 and only releases security updates for it. We will deprecate EasyApache 3 on December 31, 2018. After that date, we will no longer update EasyApache 3. In cPanel & WHM version 78, we will remove support for EasyApache 3. For more information, read our cPanel Long-Term Support documentation. If you do not upgrade to EasyApache 4, you cannot upgrade to cPanel & WHM version 78. We strongly recommend that you upgrade to EasyApache 4.

openssl – OpenSSL library interface


PHP Version5
Profile ValueCpanel::Easy::PHP5::Openssl
Reverse BooleanNo


This module has no known compatibility issues.


Typically, OpenSSL is included with and maintained by your operating system. 


Attempts to manually upgrade your system's OpenSSL will likely result in a seriously damaged and potentially unresponsive server. You should only upgrade OpenSSL through your operating system vendor's suggested methods (for example: with the yum utility).

If you enable this option, --with-openssl=directory an --with-openssl-dir=directory will be added to PHP's configuration options.
