    Hey guys!

    I have a question. I've been looking at Google for answers, these answers have been posted at least one year ago, so I have to ask it by myself. Is there a necessity to upgrade from CentOS v6.6 to v7.0?

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    It's not required, and cPanel only recently started supporting CentOS 7 in cPanel version 11.50 (only available on the Edge build tier at this time):

    11.50 Release Notes

    Note that if you do plan on using CentOS 7, it's better to backup your accounts to a remote location and reinstall the OS completely, rather than attempting a direct upgrade from CentOS 6 to CentOS 7.

    Thank you.
