Cannot update php (even though it claims success)

Hello! I have a weird issue, so hoping someone can rescue me.

I am currently running mod_php 7.4.1. A few weeks ago, I tried upgrading to 7.4.3, which did not work - it claimed success, but when I tried "./build versions", it shows php 7.4.1 is still installed. I left it alone thinking perhaps it was a temporary issue.

So just now I tried again, upgrading to 7.4.4 this time. It results in the same issue.

Here's part of my options.conf:
Code:
php1_mode=mod_php
php1_release=7.4
php2_mode=php-fpm
php2_release=no
Here's the last few lines of ./build update_versions:
Code:
/usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/php-7.4.4/build/shtool install -c ext/phar/phar.phar /usr/local/bin
ln -s -f phar.phar /usr/local/bin/phar

PHP 7.4.4 Installed.
I get the same result when I just ./build php.

But, as mentioned, the next ./build versions says:
Code:
PHP 7.4: 7.4.1 to 7.4.4 update is available.
A few notes:
- I tried php1_mode=php-fpm a few months ago, but experienced unexplained occasional crashes, so reverted back to mod_php to ensure stability.
- This is a rather new (virtual private) server, it was installed from scratch in December. I did update php from 7.4.0 to 7.4.1 on 3 January, but that may have been when I was still using php-fpm.

When I go look around in /usr/local/php74/, I see that ./lib has an updated php.ini and php.conf.d contents, and the file links in ./bin are 'updated', but the actual binaries, along with everything else in /usr/local/php74/, is most recently changed on 7 January (or earlier). I do still see a lot of references to php-fpm in that folder, I'm not sure whether I should worry about that.

Thanks for the suggestion, tried that, but it doesn't have an effect.

Don't forget to run 'make test'.

Thanks for the follow-up. I restarted apache from the DA web UI, and then tried via the console.
Code:
[root@funkyserver ~]# php -v
PHP 7.4.1 (cli) (built: Jan  7 2020 10:22:27) ( NTS )
Copyright (c) The PHP Group
Zend Engine v3.4.0, Copyright (c) Zend Technologies
    with Zend OPcache v7.4.1, Copyright (c), by Zend Technologies
Summarizing: from the ./build commands, it looks like php 7.4.4 successfully builds, but at the end, it isn't set to be actually used. Maybe it's building into the wrong directory, or the old version is not being succesfully replaced by it after the build, ...

Is there a way to purge everything related to php (mod_php, php_fpm, config files, everything) and rebuild 'for the first time'? I'm not using any custom php.ini. (The only 'unusual thing' I do is add --with-xmlrpc to the ./configure/ap2/configure.php74 script.)

I do hope something like that won't risk leaving me with no php though, as I have live applications running on it 😅
