Hello
I just have purchased a new dedicated server, and which OS is officially recommended and compatible to install and run a smooth WHM and Cpanel?
Also, I have heard that Cpanel is not recommended for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS? Is that so? If yes, can we install an older version of CPanel to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS?

Ubuntu is still experimental.

I recommend not using it until it's stable. Centos 7 is stable now and will continue to support until 2024, if you want a longer support period, almalinux 8 will be a better option.

Important note: You cannot use versions below php 7.2 on Almalinux 8 and versions below php 7.3 on ubuntu. In addition, ubuntu currently only supports mysql 8, no mariadb support.
