    Is it safe to upgrade? Is there a stable version of cpanel 11 yet?

    Thanks,

    You can always check http://layer2.cpanel.net for the latest versions. cPanel 11 hasn't made it to Release yet so it is quite a bit away from Stable.

    I am running CP11 on a developement server and have seen a couple problems (md5) etc.

    I have heard from a few people running CP11 and each one is having some type of issue.

    I dont think Cp11 is ready for (stable) yet and I dont think it will be ready on the 26th.

    I hope cPanel does not push it out to stable without some more testing, I would rather wait than starting moving servers with hundreds of users over to a system that is not yet stable.

    until I see some production machines with a large amount of users migrate to CP11 without any major issues I wont be happy.

    Maybe I am wrong?
    Has anyone actually moved a server with 300+ users to cp11 without issues?

    I would advise to wait as long as possible, or at least 2 weeks after the stable version to upgrade. I'll doubt if they will keep up the release schedule, and better safe then sorry.

    cPanel also advice not to run edge and current on production servers.

    I agree with Freezer. I would wait a week or two after the official release if you have a production server. I already tried to make the switch and had some major issues so I downgraded back to cPanel 10 and will be waiting a few more weeks to upgrade.

    I would suggest you wait at least 1 month from now. cPanel will release new easyapache on June 19, 2007 as shown on the release schedule. A lot of bugs will find that time, and a lot change will be added making it is unstable. Wait after new easyapache is released at least 2 weeks will make your life a lot of easier.

    Thanks for all the tips. Will definitely wait. From looking at the other topics, looks like there are still a lot of issues to iron out with version 11.

    Will sit tight :)

    I was having a few issues this morning, my web host told me that cpanel pushed v11 out last night and they've been having hell on their service desk since.

    My strange happenings were somehow the update process had stalled, and also the exim.conf mysteriously disappeared.

    Niiiiice.

    CP11 is EVIL...

    CP11 has been pushed to all my production servers.
    And currently I am unable to create/delete any hosting account thru WHM.
    Not sure what else might have been broken. GREAT. :mad:

    Centos 4.5.

    Upgrade from 10 Release to 11 Release went smoothly with the exception of not being able to restart Spam Aasassin.

    I upgraded today.

    I have Centos 4.5 and until now I haven't got any troubles with the upgrade. I did not lose any data, or config and all my sites are running fine.
    I still didn't test everything 100%, but until now I'm pleased with upgrade.


    Besides I'm not having any troubles, I'm seeing many people here in the forum with problems. If you are not sure if you want to upgrade, I advise you to wait for the stable version.

    If you can wait, wait

    There are a lot of bugs.
    Seems that the release tree wasn't ready for cpanel 11.
    If you have your server set to manually update, we recommend you not to update.
    We are having a few problems, but the worst is not knowing when are going to be fixed, or worst, the bugs that didn't arise yet but certainly will appear when someone pull the trigger.

    FWIW, that's *my* plan of attack. I'm more than willing to let others have all the "QA fun" :) I can wait.
