How do I change the runlevel on a CentOS 7/RHEL 7/CloudLinux 7 or 8/ or Almalinux 8 system?
On cPanel systems, we highly recommend that you set the system to the
multi-user.target run level, otherwise known as runlevel 3. You can confirm the system's runlevel with this command:
If the system's runlevel is not 3 you can set the system to use the
multi-user.target runlevel by running these commands in the order they are presented:
systemctl set-default multi-user.target
More information on changing the runlevel can be found here.
Please note: Setting the system's runlevel is not something that cPanel's Support team can complete for you. If you have any concerns about setting the system's runlevel, we highly suggest that you contact your server administrator to complete this task for you.
