KernelCare helps in automatically updating System’s Linux Kernel. It works without requiring for a reboot. WHM and cPanel servers allow to purchase this License from WHM’s Security Advisor interface (WHM >> Home >> Security Settings >> Security Advisor).
There are three ways to purchase the KernelCare license.
We can purchase a KernelCare License on our desired server by working on the following procedure:
We need to log in as a root user in WHM or as a reseller account with privileges of root level.
We need to navigate to WHM’s Security Advisor (WHM >> Home >> Security Settings >> Security Advisor) interface.
Next, we need to click Up-grade to KernelCare in the KernelCare Security alert. We will see that a new interface will appear after that.
The System requests for access to this account. This happens if one has logged into their cPanel store account already. We need to verify whether the interface shows or displays the cPanel Store username and server name correctly. If so, then click Allow Access. A new interface will appear after that.
While purchasing a KernelCare License through WHM interface, there is an automatic selection by the system. It selects the appropriate License type for the server and helps in detecting the IPv4 address to License. For now, one can only be able to purchase monthly Licenses through WHM interface.
After going through all the above procedures, the server will download and install KernelCare License automatically. To check or verify whether the installation is done successfully or not, we can navigate to WHM’s Security Advisor interface (WHM >> Home >> Security Settings >> Security Advisor).
Navigate to Add License interface (Dashboard >> Licenses >> Add License).
In the Add license interface add information in the text boxes and menus to specify the server’s IP address, group, package and license type and term. A confirmation message will appear as you click on Add License.
The license is thus ready to install. Users can read our How to Install KernelCare documentation to know more about installation process.
Log in to the cPanel Store account, and navigate to CloudLinux KernelCare interface (Home >> CloudLinux KernelCare).
When the user will click on Buy Now, the KernelCare interface will appear thereafter.
To complete the checkout process, enter a promo code in the Promo Code text box, if it is already present, then click on Checkout. Otherwise, click Checkout after entering the code. Finally, Secure Checkout page will appear.
After confirming the selection, agree to the End User License Agreement (EULA) and enter your credit card information. After selecting the agreement checkbox, the payment section will appear. Enter the credit card information. The Invoice interface will appear after clicking on Place Order.
After completing the purchase, the user will get a confirmation email which will have the instructions on KernelCare’s installation.
