Any update on a CWP release for CENTOS 9 Delayed Stream?
« on: October 28, 2023, 04:26:59 PM »
I'd like to start doing some testing on a Centos 9 platform.  Are we looking at Spring of 2024 for a CWP release, or could it be earlier?

We are very soon to release the first stable version of cwp9, possibly in the next few days we will look for some enthusiasts to control some close tests, surely all this will be announced in due course by this means!

A blog post would be nice. I am in the process of moving from CWP to Virtualmin because of the absolute lack of information.

I might put a hold on that if the release all goes well.  :)

Nice. I dont know how but my serwer show that have el7 cwp 7.2 on Almalinux 8. After login to admin I get error 404//not found i tried all steps which i could find - nothing helped. So I would like test new CWP on Almalinux 9, when all my sites stil works on old instalation, and I will try migrate them to new instalation.

Great news!  Where exactly will the closed test announcement be made.  In this forum, in which section?

Thanks!

I would be interested in testing an EL9 release candidate after the new year, as I will be migrating everything over to AlmaLinux 9 come next spring.

I would like to know when the release is expected?  I am facing the construction of a new infrastructure and I do not want to work with legacy Linux when the EL9 version is close.

Haven't seen any follow-up announcements from the dev team. If your timeframe is tight, I don't think you could go wrong with AlmaLinux 8 and CWP for EL8. You should likely be able to ELevate to AlmaLinux 9 when CWP for EL9 comes out and is stable...

The life cycles for AlmaLinux are:

AlmaLinux 8.x   2029
AlmaLinux 9.x   2032

So installing CWP EL8 on AlmaLinux 8.x as @overseer mentioned is a safe bet for awhile.

Thanks for the quick answer, I admit that I was only thinking about ubuntu so far. But after this I will definitely consider using AlmaLinux...

Saw your reply, just a FYI CWP only runs on RH type systems, Not Debian type.

It happens.

RH killed off CentOS 8, and created CentOS Stream, which is now a beta version for RHEL, instead of an after-build.

So it's now:
Fedora -> CentOS Stream -> RHEL.
(alpha) -> (beta) -> Release/Production Release

The only options for an 8 based system is RHEL 8, AlmaLinux 8, etc.
