With CentOS 7.x going EOL on June 30, 2024 cPanel had to start supporting other Linux distros. Since the CentOS going EOL news hit the community it has put a lot of pressure on cPanel. Due to the news a software provider called CloundLinux went ahead and created AlmaLinux, a community-supported, production-grade enterprise operating system that is binary-compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The first stable release of AlmaLinux was published on March 30, 2021, cPanel already fully supports AlmaLinux, and the installation process is the same as on CentOS. However cPanel didn’t stop there, CentOS was great but they were on a single point of failure Linux distro, now they have eliminated that by fully supporting Ubuntu. In this blog, we are going through the installation process.
