    Hey there!  No, you would not be able to use RedHat 7 for a cPanel installation, as that operating system has never been supported.  You can find details on the supported operating systems here: https://docs.cpanel.net/installation-guide/system-requirements/

    Hello,

    Now we have Red Hat 7.9 and cPanel &WHM 110.0.23. We have plan to migrate cPanel with new hardware with OS AlmaLinux8 because OS RedHat 7 is EOL  https://docs.cpanel.net/knowledge-base/third-party/third-party-software-end-of-life-policy/
    I have read from this link:

    How long will cPanel support my chosen operating system?

    For new installations of cPanel & WHM, we strongly recommend that you use an OS with the longest planned support.

        CentOS 6 and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 6 — November 30, 2020
        CentOS 8 — December 31, 2021
        CentOS 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, CloudLinux™ 6, and CloudLinux 7 — June 30, 2024

    I would like to know what will happen after date "June 30 2024" with my users?
    Will websites work normally on cPanel after that date?

    Thank you!

    Best regards,
    Elizabeta

    You should be using AlmaLinux 8 at this point for new installations.  Nothing will happen to your existing users, but their machine will not receive any updates.

    Hello, cPRex thank you for your answer.

    I read that AlmaLinux 9 is not recommended for new cPanel installations?

    Which OS do you recommend to install on new hardware?

    AlmaLinux 9 can be used on the latest stable version of cPanel.

    Hello,

    I have received this email:

    We are currently in the process of migrating cPanel to new hardware (OS Alma).

    I have read documentation that End of Life for RedHat 7 is 31.7.2024.

    What will happen to our users after 6/30/2024?

    Best regards,
    Elizabeta

    Nothing will happen to your users or system, you just won't receive any updates after that time.
