cPanel Inc., announces the release of cPanel & WHM 11.36 to the CURRENT tier.

Included in this brand new release are further improvements to the update system, building on work started with cPanel & WHM 11.30. A new staging step during installation allows a variety of checks to occur prior to changing the cPanel & WHM installation. This makes both new installation, and upgrades, more reliable.

cPanel & WHM 11.36 also brings an entirely new system for managing applications, based upon the tried-and-true RPM packaging format. By distributing applications via RPM we are able to reduce cPanel & WHM installation time by 30%, on average. The new system also provides integrators and system deployers a simplified means of distributing applications with cPanel & WHM.

We are happy to announce that cPanel & WHM 11.36 brings a modern version of Perl with it. Perl 5.14 is available with all versions of 11.36 and newer. This change brings an end to the older Perl 5.8.8 distributed with prior versions of cPanel & WHM.

This release also lays the groundwork for Apache 2.4, which will appear shortly with the release of EasyApache 3.18.

Other features are also available in version 11.36:

  • The Email Auto Discovery feature, first introduced in cPanel & WHM 11.34, has been updated with improved compatibility with existing setups.
  • It is now possible to display the number of files used by an account, in the cPanel Stats Bar.
  • The ability to track mail sent by web applications is improved through new functions to query the web server, and with X-PHP-Script functionality added to PHP.

cPanel thanks the members of our EDGE-Users community for their feedback and testing of the development releases. If you would like to join this community please GO HERE: Mailing Lists | cPanel, Inc..

and our Documentation Notes: cPanel & WHM 11.36 Release Notes

Please note, after upgrading to the new release, a downgrade to an older version will not be permitted.

Hello,
Sorry for my mistake.

Correction:

Hello,
Any eta to IPv6 or will be postponed to after cpanel starts loosing licences to other control panel and with that customers an partners, same as for dnssec? Original ETA for IPv6 is 11.36 and now IPv6 is released without IPv6...

We're hoping to have EA 3.18 available shortly, on the order of days. There is an incompatibility with wildcard domains, that was detected late in the process. The bug required a change to cPanel & WHM. The fix should be available shortly (in 11.36.0.3+). Once the fix is available we will publish EA 3.18 (baring further incident).

Thank you for the detailed info!

Any idea about how long it takes cpup to convert a 11.34 install to 11.36?

Obviously it will vary based on server abilities, but are we talking more than 30 minutes or less?

Basically because of all the rpm changes I suspect it's a more laborious upgrade.

Most of our servers are on current but I've temporarily turned off updates until I see that a few little quirks have been resolved - I want to run it manually to be around if anything breaks.

Speaking of Apache 2.4, is there any plain English guide as to how it will impact existing systems?

I realize it's "Experimental" in the new EasyApache release, so I'll avoid it. But being that it will eventually be inevitable, I'd like to know what I might have to do with standard WordPress and XenForo (forum) installations and such.

Peace,
Gene

18 minutes. :)
Thanks for that. Finally tried it on one of the servers.

Only took 7 minutes but that's on a four core i7
Still, I ran it with ionice and cpuwatch, so seven minutes is rather good.

Despite the scary long log, it came up without a hitch, so far, so good.

What is this little bit added for mysql under 11.36
Code:
cpanel-perl-514-MySQL-Diff-0.43-1.cp1136.x86_64
Hope it's not affected by a mariadb switchover.

Indeed, did a test update from 11.34 to 11.36 on new KVM based VPS with 4x cpu cores from Xeon E5-26xx based server (E5-2630 i believe) and took ~7 minutes to update. Will be interesting to see how the RPM system handles PHP and MySQL customisations :)

I use Percona SQL Server, and had it installed prior to the upgrade to 11.36. Everything stayed in place after the upgrade, and so far it has not replaced it with that POS default MySQL server.

Guys, thank you for the update. However, there is growing concern over the availability of IPv6. I've seen threads opened on this topic multiple times over the years. You are industry leaders in the control panel industry. It seems absurd that there would not be any IPv6 support yet. Many domain registrars have began accepting IPv6. IPv4 issues should be a thing of the past. When you all implement this support, all suits will follow since you all are one of the biggest CP's in the market.

When will this be done? Please advise, thank you
