Alma 9.0 is out and I consider installing it to my new server. When does cPanel plan to suport it, if it's already not?
What are you referring to as bleeding edge? AlmaLinux appears to be fairly stable and a year old. Also, as far as I can tell, it's a 1:1 likeness of RHEL (very similar to Centos), so not really anything to worry about as there are no discernible differences (I could be wrong!)I just want to add this statement..
Bleeding edge software doesn't make for a professional stable secure platform.
Specifically version 9: I've been running 8.x for a while now, on a number of different servers, cPanel and others.What are you referring to as bleeding edge?
Hi there Rex. For those of us still running CentOS 7, would you recommend to WAIT until Almalinux 9 is fully tested and supported to cPanel, so that we might skip AL8? That would save the time afforded to upgrade servers from AL8 to AL9... I guess it would be far better.Version 9 has only been out for a few weeks, so it's still going to be a bit. We're hoping to have an announcement near the end of this year or early next year, but nothing is set in stone yet.
I tried Elevate on a CENTOS7 and the server went almost unbootable. So I'm not trusting Elevate a lot by now. It must be polished yet.I wouldn't wait - I'd do Alma8 sooner than later. It's very likely there will be an Elevate tool to go from Alma 8 to 9, although I don't have any official details on that, but that seems to be the way things are headed.
Almalinux 8.5 is very stable, I do not understand why you stubbornly want to use an operating system that is not yet stable. New is not always good.It has been 3 months since this thread was created. Come on people.
