One of the best things about the people at cPanel and WHM is that they listen to what their users have to say. They understand that their loyal followers are always looking for new, improved, and updated stuff, and so, for the past months, they have been working hard to deliver yet another exceptional service: support for CentOS 7. And thanks to the brains behind the Code Monkeys development team, this is nearing reality.
Technology Preview for cPanel and WHM version 11.50
In order to ensure that cPanel and WHM users get the best experience, especially for the newly rolled out services, tools, and updates, the experts are offering what they call a “Technology Preview.”
Although most of the extensive assessments and tests have been conducted by the cPanel and WHM pros, they understand that there is a possibility of bugs still being present. This is where the Technology Preview comes into play.
In a nutshell, this program enables users to give the latest compatibility a try, so that they can make sure integration of the CentOS 7 will be as problem-free as possible. The Code Monkeys development team is strongly advising users to test their own preferred CentOS 7 configurations before they integrate it with their cPanel and WHM servers with the compatibility.
Unavoidable CentOS 7 Changes
One important thing to remember is that, even though the development team tried their very best to make certain CentOS 7 works seamlessly with cPanel and WHM, they had to make some changes. These include the following:
We have to thank the developers for all their hard work with the CentOS 7 compatibility, and as a way to show gratitude, you may want to consider taking part in the Technology Preview. CentOS 7 will be shipped out in this format in version 11.50. As for full support, it will be made available in version 11.52.
