RedHat announced all the packages are now available for CentOS 8 awhile ago.

Agreed Full Updates end Q4 2020
Maintenance Updates end June 30th, 2024

Would make sense any new server brought up would be CentOS 8, and not 7.

@bevhost this is so true.. the CentOS7 cleared reached its end, start a new server now on 7 that will have no security in less than 4 for years, it gives you a End of Life for the machine..

Starting in CentOS 8 I can guarantee that will run more than 5 years at least

@bevhost did u had any further information about how that?

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

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.

Try upgrading your kernel to 5.8.x, that worked for my CPU's.

The old stock 3.1x.x is very old.

when centos 8 is released, we will have to test before we make of it.
But surely there will centos 8 version of CWP

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.

Have you had any success upgrade from CentOS 7 to 8?

I've tried twice on a beta box, and both times it failed Miserably...
One with everyone up2date and 1 with a brand new base install of 7.
AGain, BOTH Failed to upgrade using the online guides I found.

I would recommend reinstalling OS. The upgrade has too many issues.

Stream edition??

Didn't see any mention (but I could have missed it) of that in the installation instructions.

Many providers don't offer that, just the Minimal CentOS 8. :/

Code: [Select]
if [ -e "/usr/local/cwpsrv/" ]; then
echo
echo "CWP is already installed on your server."
echo "If you want to update it, run this command: sh /scripts/update_cwp"
echo
exit 1
fi

# Check for unsupported Operating systems
arch=$(uname -m)
#centosversion=`rpm -qa \*-release | grep -Ei "oracle|redhat|centos|cloudlinux" | cut -d"-" -f3`
centosversion=`rpm -qa \*-release | grep -Ei "oracle|redhat|centos|cloudlinux" | cut -d"-" -f3|sed 's/\..$//'`

if [[ $arch == "i686" ]]; then
    echo "Unsupported Operating system, please use CentOS 7.x 64bit"
    exit 1
elif [[ $arch == "armv7l" ]]; then
    echo "Unsupported Operating system, please use CentOS 7.x 64bit"
    exit 1
fi

#if [ $centosversion -eq "8" ]; then
#    echo "Unsupported Operating system, please use CentOS 7.x 64bit"
#    exit 1
if [[ $centosversion -eq "6" ]]; then
    echo "Unsupported Operating system, please use CentOS 7.x 64bit"
    exit 1
elif [[ $centosversion -eq "5" ]]; then
    echo "Unsupported Operating system, please use CentOS 7.x 64bit"
    exit 1

it seems, the centos8 code is for centos7?
see a snipped from the update script?

any possibility to upgrade from 7 to 8 with a cwp upgrade script?
dont want to resetup many stuffs :/ teamspeak, apache/nginx/vanish edits and many more...
