    CentOS, Red Hat and CloudLinux have all discontinued support for version 5 of their respective operating systems as of March 31, 2017.

    CloudLinux Documentation

    In order to ensure compatibility with the latest versions of cPanel & WHM, please update your server to an x86_64 system with CentOS, RHEL, CloudLinux 6 or 7.

    cPanel & WHM version 11.56 is the last version available for these operating systems and the anticipated End of Life for this version is October 2017. More details regarding cPanel's EOL and LTS Support can be found here:

    As CentOS version 5 has reached it's End of Life, all official repositories have been removed, while most mirrors are updating to remove these as well. This prevents yum updates and other package management from functioning as required.

    A temporary workaround to this dilemma is to update all repository mirrors to utilize vault.centos.org accordingly.

    The following contents are an example of a CentOS 5.11 repository utilizing the vault mirrors.

    Code:
    # TEMPORARY CENT5 EOL REPO
    # WARNING CENT 5 IS EOL UPGRADES SHOULD BE PERFORMED IMMEDIATELY
    
    [C5.11-base]
    name=CentOS-5.11 - Base
    baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/5.11/os/$basearch/
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
    enabled=1
    
    [C5.11-updates]
    name=CentOS-5.11 - Updates
    baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/5.11/updates/$basearch/
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
    enabled=1
    
    [C5.11-extras]
    name=CentOS-5.11 - Extras
    baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/5.11/extras/$basearch/
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
    enabled=1
    
    [C5.11-centosplus]
    name=CentOS-5.11 - Plus
    baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/5.11/centosplus/$basearch/
    gpgcheck=1
    gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-5
    enabled=0
    Further documentation for details configuration yum repository files can be found here:
    8.4. Configuring Yum and Yum Repositories

    Customers running CloudLinux, or RHEL will need to contact their OS provider directly as these Operating Systems use the rhnplugin for updates and not the repository files.
