We try to use Alma Linux on Microsoft Azure with cPanel instead of CentOS expecting for long time support.
So, I could install Alma Linux and cPanel manually on Azure.
It looks like work well.

We never try to use Alma Linux,
What is difference between Alma Linux and CentOS?
cPanel fully support Alma Linux same as CentOS?

Hello yoshi19998! Almalinux is essentially a drop-in replacement for Centos created by the developers of CloudLinux. cPanel supports AlmaLinux 8. A full list of our supported operating systems can be found here:

We've also published an article with more information and resources regarding AlmaLinux that I believe may help you gain a better understanding of what AlmaLinux is and its capabilities:
