    But how do we upgrade the PHP binary if the installer does not upgrade it ?

    cd /lsws-2.2-installer-folder/
    cp admin/fcgi-bin/admin_php /mylswsinstall/fcgi-bin/php
    overwrite file? (y/n) Y
    Please make sure that your application and php.ini are compatible with 4.4.4. Upgrading php binary als means upgrading all your custom php extensions and it is the reason we do not overwrite active php binary.
