Can people still view websites publicly on the server, while the php updating process is happening? Do I need to disable websites for the time being, or not necessary?

If they have the URL, they will be able to view the site. To block people from seeing the site, you may want to password protect the directory.

Thanks. Im more curious if it is dangerous to leave websites accessible to public while php is updating with easyapache?

During the time that Apache is recompiling for a PHP upgrade, it is safe to leave the sites up and running.
