I have a need for newer PHP functions only available from 5.2++ version.
My Plesk could not be update above 5.1++
If I do it from CRM it has been reported tons of problems.
Due to the above I will probably change for a Cpanel that supports the PHP version I am looking for.
I never used it, so do you think that from the get go, for the basic daily routine, I could jump in right away or will I get a headache?
your thoughts?

I never get headaches but I have experienced equal frustration with each of the aforementioned applications each time I work with them. If this is your own server and if at all possible, request secure shell access with the port open only through your VPN tunnel which requires an accommodating firewall.

Don't let CPanel auto-generate ANY code for your .htaccess file.

It produces some of the worst mod_rewrite code on the planet.

g1smd: care to elaborate for us CPanel users? Any or all of the the areas that result in a bad mod_rewrite coding?

Incorrect syntax and inefficient code are the two main problems: [google.com...]

OK coopster, yes I could do that;
Thanks all for your input
Question: Since I do not know, yet, how it looks, then how do you make sure it won't overwrite my actual working .htaccess.
