How do I change the "runlevel" on a CentOS 7/RHEL 7 or 8 system?
On cPanel cPanel system, we highly recommend that you have the system set to use the
multi-user.target run level. Otherwise known as, runlevel "3." You can confirm the system's runlevel by running the following command:
If the system's runlevel is not '3' then 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 this 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.
