umm CL7 is really just an overlay replacement to Centos isn't it? so if you have centos 7 support shouldn't CL7 work by default?? and does anyone here not use CL!??

There are similarities but CloudLinux is not simply an overlay for CentOS; they are each distinct RPM-based distributions based on the sources of RHEL. Unlike CentOS, CloudLinux has multiple features that enhance, expand, or alter how you interact with cPanel&WHM. These, along with differences in RPM and OS packages, need to be considered and accounted for when reviewing and testing support for such a major new OS release.


I am personally very much looking forward to official cPanel&WHM support for CloudLinux 7. The votes and feedback received here are likely to influence the priority and attention allotted to this feature request. I encourage you and everyone using CloudLinux to share with interested colleagues to garner greater community support for this new CL release.

The CloudLinux guys seem to respond as if they just need to sit back and wait for cPanel to make things compatible. If I were them I'd be pushing for it, working hand-in-hand. There is no upgrade path from CL6 to CL7, so I think they should be taking this more seriously if they want good adoption of their CL7 product. cPanel 11.50 is going to be "the" cPanel version soon and it won't work with CL7 (as far as we know).


Updates on the progress of cP 11.50 and CL 7.x would really be welcome.

Hi Don


thanks, however like me, i am sure most others assume this should just work without us having to vote and beg Cpanel to consider it. I am sure you all have a pretty good idea how many servers actually use CL and you should be able to tell from that How needed this actually is ... and I am sure that number is very large. so lets just get it done.

In the following forum post, Michael from cPanel says that CloudLinux 7 (as well as CentOS 7 and RHEL 7) will be supported in cPanel 11.50:

As of the time of writing RHEL 7 and CentOS 7 are the only new, major OS releases officially supported in cPanel&WHM 11.50. Official support for CloudLinux 7.1 is not yet available.

so michael is wrong?

The aforementioned forums post was updated today to ensure it reflects accurate information. I apologize for the confusion as that was certainly not intended.

thats good to hear, so why do we need this feature request then?

You have CloudLinux very much integrated on your web site as if you are closely linked. I would like to roll out CentOS 7, install CloudLinux 7.1 and cPanel 11.50 right now. Will it not work?

If I am understanding the cPanel devteam correctly, actually not!

I am even a bit surprised as CL is partner and in my view the absolute best choice for shared hosting server.

I think they will realease it as soon as possible, better wait for a stable, secure version like cpanel used to have all the time instead of buggy shit..


//@cPanelDon: Of course a prognosis / time frame would be great...

And I am reading that upgrading from a lower version of CL is not a great idea. Looks like plans are on hold a bit. Wish there was a way to get all the developers in one location and just get an answer.

I'm not a cPanel or CloudLinux developer, so when I think that the jump from CentOS 6 to 7 must be significantly greater than the side step from CentOS 7 to CloudLinux 7... I could be wrong.


But I'm a cPanel customer, and given past experiences, simply wouldn't consider cPanel without CloudLinux. The partnership between cPanel and CloudLinux indicates there's good reason for that.


My vote is for equal cPanel resources put into compatibility with CentOS and CloudLinux, as the two have become inseparable in our eyes, and many others, and dare I say should be inseparable for shared hosting providers.

When cPanel states they support CloudLinux i expect them to have a working integration shortly after a new release comes out. I am personally waiting for this before i phase out a bunch of CentOS 5 instances.

Nice! Now the development is in progress!

From past experiences with cPanel, what do you guys think is the actual eta on this? days, weeks or months?

photo

I would guess that it would either be 11.52 or 11.54. If it's 11.52 it could be about 1 month before it makes it to edge (maybe less) and at least 2 more months at least before it makes it to current. This will rearly depend on how many bugs they discover in the edge version and how many peoply try it.


11.50 hasn't made it to the stable branch yet, so you can't expect 11.52 to make it to edege much before then.

Is this actually supported in the "Current" tier? I created an Amazon EC2 instance with CENTOS 7, installed CPanel "Current" tier on it and converted it to CloudLinux 7.1, somehow this works and haven't noticed any problem.


Don't try to install CPanel directly on CloudLinux 7.1 as it won't let you do it.

11.50 has only partial, unofficial support of CloudLinux 7. For official support, you will need cPanel&WHM 11.52, along with an updated installer (v00047 or later), which offers a much more complete solution, including both fresh or clean installations directly to CloudLinux 7 as well as conversions from CentOS.

Any progress on this?

At the 12th of August I've received an email with an update containing the change of project-status to 'in progress'. Hopefully they'll get this done fast (preferably without bugs... :D).

This is presently available via the 11.51.9999 (development) builds on the edge tier, and will also be included in 11.52.0.

well done but really, having to do this after each update manually?

>>Because XFS requires the usrquota string in the grub.cfg boot configuration, CloudLinux 7 updates may break quotas. For this reason, you must run the /scripts/fixquotas script before you reboot after each CloudLinux 7 update.<<


sounds like its more related to XFS than cloudlinux or a combo of the 2? are you working to fix that in future releases so its not needed?
