EasyApache upgrade


I noticed that it’s advisable to upgrade to EasyApache 4 but when I tried I get the following message:

“EasyApache 4 is not available when EasyApache 3 is active.

If you would like to use EasyApache 4, the following url contains instructions on how to convert to EasyApache 4.”


I followed the instructions below ‘How to install EasyApache4.’

How to install EasyApache 4

To install EasyApache 4, perform the following steps on the command line as the root user:

  1. Run the following command:

 /scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 –run


However, despite many attempts and changes of user and even different sites

I get the error message below. [~]# /scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 –run

Failed to mkdir(/usr/local/cpanel/logs/packman): Permission denied


 I would like to do the upgrade as it is recommended and EasyApache 3 will not be supported beyond early 2018, but at this stage I have run out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards

You must first become the root superuser.  Just use sudo:


sudo su

/scripts/migrate_ea3_to_ea4 –run
