    Whenever I put /scripts/easyapache into my ssh window, easy apache auto executes and I never get to select what option I want. What gives?<br />
    <br />
    And is there a way around this happening?<br />

    if you don't see the "options" selection and it just goes into building apache, you might need to delete the /home/cpapachebuild directory and files, and you might also need to use upcp -force FIRST. <br />
    <br />
    I had this problem but did the above and it worked.

    Instead of doing it in the console, it's much better to simply use the WHM interface. It shows everything that can be set or unset, and works without unpredictable results on different platforms. Look for "Upgrade Apache" on the left hand side frame menu.
