    For continued compatibility with the latest versions of cPanel & WHM, please update your server to CentOS 6 or RHEL 6.

    CentOS and Red Hat discontinued support for version 4 of their respective operating systems on February 29, 2012.

    cPanel & WHM version 11.32 will be the last to support version 4 of these operating systems. In accordance with our end of life policy, cPanel & WHM will continue to function on these systems after the operating system end of life date.

    If you currently run version 4 of CentOS or RHEL, we recommend upgrading your server to version 6 of your operating system.

    To determine your installed operating system version, use the following command:

    cat /etc/redhat-release

    In past November Ï just moved my server from CentOS 4.9 to a box with CentOS 5. What about CentOS 5?

    Code:
    [root /]# cat /etc/redhat-release
    CentOS release 5.7 (Final)

    As a courtesy to our customers running CentOS 4. we have created a CentOS-Base.repo file which points to the vault.centos.org server You will need to copy the contents of the CentOS-Base.repo below to /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo. After that EasyApache and other scripts will be able to install packages correctly. We strongly urge you to upgrade your server to a supported version of CentOS or to migrate your customers to a new server running a supported version of CentOS.

    Customers running RHEL will need to contact Red Hat or their reseller to inquire about working 4.x mirrors or upgrade to a later version of RHEL.


    # CentOS-Base.repo
    #
    # This file uses a new mirrorlist system developed by the CentOS Team.
    # The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
    # update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
    # geographically close to the client. You should use this for CentOS updates
    # unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
    #
    # If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the
    # remarked out baseurl= line instead.
    #
