    I was interested in learning more on how to upgrade your kernel and allow to have a backup and be able to restore it. I am complete newbie when it comes to this so I would like to learn about it.

    Is this a good guide to update a CentOS cPanel server kernel?

    Regards

    Note: I am running a VPS.

    Hey Lucas,

    Yeah, everything necessary is covered up prettily in that guide :) Thank you for sharing it with us..
    Albeit there are other ways too to upgrade the kernel, but I'd advise you to adhere to the one you supplied..
    Also, there's no way in upgrading the kernel of a VPS, as it uses the one installed on the host server it's on :D
    But if you prefer going for a Dedicated one, this task becomes possible ;)

    I see. Well, I will be ordering my own server as I am starting my own business very soon. I wanted to do some Kernel upgrade tests but I guess I'll have to do it with the dedicated server. I just found this guy through google. Seems like it covers everything, I just wanted to make sure it would allow compatibility with CentOS/RHEL and cPanel

    Yup, I guess it'd be compatible with CentOS/RHEL & cPanel. I've never faced any such issues after/prior to kernel compilation/upgradation. cPanel is just GREAT !!!

    cPanel and the kernel really don't have much to do with each other.
