    ERROR: Unable to detect download method (install curl, fetch, or wget)

    I have all those installed in default RHEL locations. Where does LS search for them?

    Did found other topics which refer to setting wget permissions to 755 (will not do for security reasons). Sorry, but this means php upgrade via CP is now not possible. LS updates work fine so is there anything you can fix in future releases?

    cPanel run everything as root, so there is no permission problem.
    We may have to change to do everything as root if we cannot find a better solution.

    Don't run as root please :) You don't rebuild php that often so it's just not that difficult to change the permissions, build it, change the permissions back. If people are that worried about the permissions for wget then they can always just build php by hand.
