Hi,
I am running a CentOS 7.5 box with OVH kernel > 4.9.87-xxxx-std-ipv6-64
WHM cpanel version 72.0.4
The Kernel headers needed by cPanel appear to be version > kernel-headers-3.10.0-862.3.3.el7.x86_64

If I remove them and install the newer kernel headers matching my running kernel I get a lot of depencies issues.
Also gcc , glib etc seems to need kernel headers 3.10. the are also removed if I install the 4.9.87 kernel headers

Is there any place to change kernel header version needed by cpanel ? Or am I missing something else here ?

Thanks

Hi @marcuszan

I believe this is actually occurring because OVH does not use a standard kernel, you should be able to run normally on the kernel version you're using though OVH may have some special instructions for this. I would suggest contacting them to determine how to proceed. Technical support - OVH

Thanks!
