I'd like to try to do this myself, without purchasing a month for a support company, but I'm not sure if it's easy (enough) or not.

What are the steps involved in performing this upgrade? Is it doable through cpanel or is it all ssh commands?

Do I have to do step-upgrades, and go to version 7, then 8, then OS+?

Thanks for any direction I can receive on this.

Hey there! CloudLinux has made this process easy as they say this in their documentation:

"Upgrade is easy. You can upgrade any CloudLinux OS version to CloudLinux OS+, just click an “Upgrade” button in CLN or contact us at [email protected].”

If your license is purchased directly through CloudLinux, you can log in to their portal to perform this work. If the license is purchased through cPanel, you can contact their sales team through email to see how to proceed.

@2Pro4u Just so you are aware, CentOS is not a "rolling" release. To go from 6 to 7 (and then 7 to 8) is a migration to a different server, not an upgrade. You can't do in-place upgrades with CentOS.
