Add support for a non-systemd OS after the v6 OSes go EOL

As a cPanel User, System Administrator, and web-hosting provider I would like to see support for an OS, by March 2020, that does not use the systemd approach so that server stability and uptimes are maximized.


Hi cPanel,


Please consider adding support for an OS that does not use the systemd approach (monolithic piece of software running with root privileges) by approximately March or April 2020.


Maximum server stability. After CentOS 6, CloudLinux 6, and RHEL 6 go end of life cPanel will no longer have a supported OS with the stability my customers require.


While I use Devuan on my desktop, which does also work in a server environment, my expectation is that a yum derivative would be a logic choice based upon cPanel's current support for yum.

Thank you,



Note: Please, do not discuss systemd in this thread. There is entirely enough discussion elsewhere. A search engine will return anything and everything you desire on the topic.
