Title: Plans to support CentOS 8?
Post by: DeveloperMcD on July 25, 2019, 10:08:09 PM
It looks like CentOS 8 is coming in the not too distant future.
https://wiki.centos.org/About/Building_8

Are there plans to make a CentOS 8 version of CWP?

Apparently CentOS 7 was first released 7 July 2014, so it's about time for another major release.

Hi "evansa", this is a very very good news !

Just a question:

When you release it, will it be possible to upgrade from CWP PRO for Centos v7.x to CWP PRO for Centos v8.x or a clean installation of CWP PRO will be required?

Thanks in advance for the support.

Hi, it would be possible if CentOS can be upgraded from 7 to 8. For example, you are unable to upgrade CentOS 6 => CentOS 7

it appears that its possible to upgrade from redhat 7.6 to 8...so surely Centos 7 to 8 will also be doable?

So, what's the verdict?

Hi "evansa", Centos 8 was released on 24 September 2019, you have any news for CWP (Centos Web Panel) and CWP (Centos Web Panel) PRO for Centos 8 ?

This is the official link of this notice: https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2019-September/023449.html

Hi "Igor S.", as reported in this official link:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html-single/upgrading_to_rhel_8/index

is possible upgrade RHEL 7 to RHEL 8, now i would like to ask you if it is also possible to do the same by upgrading from Centos 7 to Centos 8 and from CWP 7 to CWP 8 ?

Thanks in advance for the support.

Well?

When will CentOS Webpanel start supporting CentOS 8?
The homepage still advertises "New - CentOS 7!"

Getting kind of dated, there...
Title: Re: Plans to support CentOS 8?
Post by: DeveloperMcD on October 26, 2019, 05:08:57 PM
Still no answer on support for CentOS 8?

It's been released for weeks now. No announcement from CentOS Webpanel admin.

Why do we need centos 8 immediately?  I'd rather wait 6 months for all of the centos 8 bugs to be fixed.

Agree, lets wait for little bit for really stable version and even as far as I know, cloudlinux still don't have Cloudlinux 8 :) .

I'll give you an example.

I recently upgraded my (bare metal) server, but unfortunately CentOS 7 uses a really old Linux kernel, so my 16-core CPU stays throttled because it thinks that each core is 50 degrees hotter than it actually is!

I looked into it, and the only solution is to upgrade to a newer Linux kernel above ______ (I forgot the version offhand) but as long as I'm stuck on CentOS 7, my CPU is going to run slow because the system thinks it's overheating. 2200 MHz per core instead of the usual max 3800 MHz per core!

So yes, we need CentOS 8.

Have you tried to upgrade to the latest Kernel?
As of this message it is at 5.3.11, which I am currently running on CentOS 7.7.1908 without problems and CWP.

That might resolve your problem with the CPUs.
Mine are running at 3792 MHz.

As of 14NOV19:

CPU Details: 1 Core (3792 MHz)
Distro Name: CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)
Kernel Version: 5.3.11-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64
CWPpro version: 0.9.8.918

It looks like you don't necessarily need a new Centos version, but a new kernel.

Check this:
https://computingforgeeks.com/install-linux-kernel-5-on-centos-7/

It's fairly simple to install.

it's too new and still has many things missing...but if you need centos 8 then you can try to install it manually and enjoy many issues you will have with it...but you can look that as a project which would allow you to play and compile many custom service to get all working.

Your solution not work !!!

I made this update whit this guide from Kernel v3.x to Kernel v5.x but at the moment CWP PRO (Centos Web Panel Pro) for Centos 7 has reported it automatically and by itself to the Kernel v3.x !

Thanks in advance for the support.

 :) Hi "studio4host",

I'm sure you will do your best to release the version of CWP (Centos Web Panel) and CWP PRO (Centos Web Panel Pro) for Centos 8 as soon as possible.

Please keep us informed.

Thanks in advance for the support.

I know this has been mentioned before.

But now that Red Hat announced CentOS 8.2.2004 as the currently supported version of CentOS from RedHat 8.4, does CWP have an estimated date?

I am looking to Install a new instance of CentOS Web Panel; and wondering whether to use CentOS 7 or 8.
Looking at the end-of-life dates for CentOS 7,  I see that Full Updates only go until the end of this year.
see https://wiki.centos.org/About/Product
After Q4 2020, only Security errata and select mission critical bug fixes will be released for C7.
Which means ideally I'd be wanting to be on C8 from next year.
I really don't want my server to require a rebuild after just six months, so I'm wondering if I wait a month or so, if C8 support will materialise for CentOS Web Panel.
I see in an earlier post that a mention was made there were some missing dependencies in C8.  Does anyone have any details about what is outstanding?
