Hi. First of all, my apologies if this post does not go in this forum, even if it is not correct to insert it in cpanel forums.
Some time ago I saw that CentOS 8 is available, I am currently working with CentOS 7.7 and I was thinking of upgrading to CentOS 8.
I have searched for information and I have seen two possibilities:
1.-Perform a CentOS upgrade (I don't know what current settings in my cPanel I can lose, and that's what scares me).
2.-Make a full backup of my server (mails, databases ... full backup), from my own server I can perform a clean installation of CentOS 8, after that, restore the backup. This implies that certain configurations that I have made have to be done again (surely, like cron jobs that I have added) and I don't know if this option would be 100% compatible.

For these doubts I have ventured to post here.

Thanks in advance and greetings.

Hi.
Then, not upgrade.
Great oversight on my part.
I I did not know that cpanel is not compatible with centos 8.
In this case, I don't need view more, I work with cPanel (in centos) but not with centos, my work is with cpanel.

Thanks!!
