RedHat announcing to limit source code availability (affecting RHEL-based distros - AlmaLinux, RockyLinux and CloudLinux)

    Hey there! I know this is generating a lot of talk online, but we don't have any official details yet. We're waiting to see what AlmaLinux is able to do and what their plans are, as we're hearing this at the same time as everyone else (as in, we got no super secret inside advanced warning).

    I have concerns too. I"m well down the path of a cloud linux 7 -> 8 migration. I need to hear cPanel will continue to support cloud linux regardless of its binary compatibility with redhat.

    Maybe another alternative approach for a segment of customers, that require long term stability, would be for cPanel to bundle cPanel with a RHEL license at a decent price and support RHEL again, which is currently unsupported, newest RHEL supported is 7 which will soon be at EOL (

    I am very worried about this update.

    Full support for Ubuntu LTS would solve this.

    I think we will have another monthly license cost. Capitalism go to hell. !!!!

    Hello everyone, I'm currently running CentOS 7.9 on my server with cPanel & WHM. I've observed that several of my key software components are outdated, and I'm contemplating an upgrade to CentOS Stream 9. Here's the current state of some components: - OpenSSL Version: ``` python -c "import ssl; print(ssl.OPENSSL_VERSION)" ``` Result: OpenSSL 1.0.2k-fips 26 Jan 2017 - Installed Development Tools: ``` yum group list installed | grep "Development Tools" ``` Result: Development Tools - GCC Version: ``` gcc --version ``` Result: gcc (GCC) 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-44) Considering the above, I have a few questions: 1. Is cPanel & WHM fully compatible with CentOS Stream 9? 2. Has anyone here made the transition to CentOS Stream 9, and if so, did you face any significant challenges? 3. Are there any known compatibility issues with other software or any recommendations for this upgrade? I appreciate any guidance or experiences you can share to help make this transition smoother. Thanks in advance!
