    Hello,

    I was wondering if it's safe to move to cPanel 11 (11.2.15-CURRENT_12405).

    I don't want to wait until it gets to Release, and just wanted people's opinions on the stability. Is it stable enough now to use in a production environment?

    Is it safe to upgrade to Apache 2.2 as well?

    So far we have not seen any strange issues on our servers that we upgraded to 11.

    We did not however go to apache 2x yet

    Yes it is safe to move to V11 Current, No it's not safe to upgrade to V11 Edge if you have a production server.

    Apache 2+ is in Edge version only and NO it's is not safe to upgrade to Apache 2+ now.

    I'm on 11 Current and haven't had any issues since installing it on Saturday.

    Edge version is stable, but you might want to stay away from EasyApache3.

    I would question any host that runs "Edge" in a production environment....

    "Edge" by definition is not typically stable and "Not" for production use..

    If you are going to run V11 I would stick with "Current" or "Stable" versions for your customers sake (and your own sanity)

    We use the "Release" tree for our customer servers, so you don't have to "question" us :rolleyes:

    Edge has been running on a few test servers and it's quite stable, even if by definition it's not stable, we've not had any problems with it for the past 3-4 months.

    The software can change from day to day... perhaps one day it is fine, the next it is not. When you say "Edge" is stable, you are making a rather broad generalization...

    Edge always has bugs, no questions there. While it "seems" to run fine, you'll find bugs in it. That's why it's edge.

    The current release seems to be alright so far, using it on more than a dozen machines with RVSkin, Fantastico and MailScanner. Sticking with Apache 1x still mind you.

    My advice is:

    1. Wait at least CP11 is avaliable on RELEASE.
    2. Then wait at least 2 months
    3. Then move to CP11

    Actually Current is usually a better platform than Release. The Release versions take a long time for bugs to be sorted out and it is not often that Current is broken.

    Honestly there isn't much of a difference in it. Maybe their backend code changed but it still has 99.9% of the same cPanel stuff. No huge reason to jump ship - it's a minor update, at least from my point of view. Save yourselves the upgrade headache and wait.

    it is that small percentage of difference that causes the problems however. Count on a 1000% increase in help desk tickets anytime there is a software change... even if it is only visual, there will be a percentage of users that freak out... I do like the frontend much better however.....

    We're going to wait until CP11 is in release build, then a few weeks after that when others have tested the stability of apache2 along with the release build and then upgrade our production servers after testing it thoroughly on our test servers :)

    Edge always has bugs which is the reason it's Edge, but from the testing we've been doing it seems quite stable. Not had any troubles so far.

    I just changed from Release to Current now and started upgrade process on a test-server.. But the mysql-db was brougth completely down at once (it was fixed however).. So unless you have time to deal with such issues: Stick with Release version... I know I will.

    If you don't have a problem with CPanels current incompatibility issues and simple little announces then go to 11, I am truly sorry I elected to upgrade I should have waited a few more months. :mad:

    I am sure they will have the fixes I need in the next few months or so.
