Hey, just released today so just wondering for Cpanel support/compatibility...
I would imagine it will be a while considering the problems with running cPanel with SELINUX on Fedora Core 3. RHE4 will have to mature some before it can be fully trusted and there's no rush to move from RHE3 since it's got a good 4 years of full support to run.
RHEL v4 is released
Any timeframe on support for RHEL v4 ?
Red Hat entreprise 4
as someone already tested the version of Red Hat Entreprise 4 with Cpanel ?
I doubt it:
FC3/RHEL4 has structure changes too, a lot of things will break as I've tested cPanel with FC3 and a lot of items broke, scripts and all.
I would think at least a month or two before we see it added.
Same goes for CentOS 4 when they're ready
Hopefully the support for RHE 4/CENTOS 4 gets added soon. I've got CENTOS 4 running on a non-cpanel box and its very stable/nice. Would love to put it on my cpanel boxes.
I have cpanel running on a centos v4 box, During OS install I did NOT install SELinux and cpanel installed clean,everything seems to be working great
Is exim running OK? I've seen it looping on issues with i2o files on FC3 for which I've found no resolution.
it seems to be
i will PM you the login details so you can look at it your self
this is a test box just to see if it owuld work
Looks like cpanel may work alright with centos v4 , I have tried every function i can and can not break cpanel
Dave, could you pm me the login too, i'm looking at pushing Sagonet to installing CentOS 4 but i wish to test it before i use for production. It's nice and stable as a non cpanel box..
i sent you cpanel login details
check it over and see if you can break it
Looks like cpanel/whm will work fine on centos v4 without selinux installed. Chirpy looked it over and I have tried every function available and no problems
Just do a minimal install of centos v4 and then install cpanel
So would you recommend using Cent OS 4 or 3.4. I use just the Min install when I install 3.4 anyway?
I wouldn't at this stage until cPanel support it, especially if you're actually going to pur customers on the server. cPanel could just as easily break on CentOS4 until it's supported. CentOS3 uses RHE3 which has at least another 4 years of updates coming from RedHat for it, so there's no need to rush to 4 yet. If you want to play and the servers for your own use and you can risk downtime if it stops working, have a play
I agree with chirpy that i would stick with v3 unless your really familier with the operation of both cpanel and the os and don't mind playing beta tester. So far v4 has performed flawlessly however that doesn't mean it won't break tomorrow.
I have a cpanel server that we use for our internal web sites that I am going to migrate to v4 so we can do some load testing. If you do decide to try v4 make sure you have a good set of backups, Cpanel is working on supported v4 versions but for now use at your own risk and make sure you have prepared for disaster recovery and dropping back to v3.
I migrated a centos 3.4 machine to 4.0 (very very interesting process, not for beginners!!! udev screws with things, has to be running 2.6 based rpm kernel etc in order for it to work because udev requires sysfs anyways yeah....). Its running cpanel flawless. no problems with exim. It had to build exim from the source rpm but other than that its working great.
the easiest way i have found to migrate which has worked with very little trouble for me is to just do a v4 minimal install over the existing v3, a upgrade install will break many things, found this out the hard way
