Rocky linux and almalinux both work good with cwp.

I appreciate the suggestion, and it's probably the best option I've seen so far.

But I still want to ask --
Can anyone SECOND this recommendation? In this thread, only "Martins-phpbb" has recommended it. Surely someone else has tried Rockylinux and had a good/bad/in-between experience with it?

Thanks!

P.S. Here's a summary of this thread so far:

Martins-phpbb: RockyLinux or almalinux
Namaste: Just wait a year or two, see what CWP comes up with closer to the 2024 deadline
iraqiboy90: CentOS8-Stream-Delayed
Admin: crickets. Still CentOS 7 I guess? Even for a $5K server you can't/won't upgrade for 5+ years, despite CentOS 7 being dead-in-the-water in just 30 months?

most servers run centos 7, next is centos 8 stream and cwp delayed, all works fully on them.

As posted on this forum once you move to centos 8 stream you are stuck there.

Atleast with rocky or alma you can auto update from versions with out the need to reinstall.

I need to post a correction -- CentOS 7 is end-of-life in JUNE 2024, not December as I assumed.

So it's even worse than I thought. Less than 24 more months of support, or life, left in CentOS 7 -- and that's currently the "recommended" or "official best" option according to the CWP project.

So I'm supposed to install an OS with a less-than-2-year life on my brand-new server, on which I spent $2.5K and likely won't ever be wiped during its expected 4 year lifespan? Not an option for me, or most people in my position.

CentOS Linux 7 will reach end of life on June 30, 2024, the same date that RHEL 7 enters the next vendor support phase: RHEL 7 Extended Lifecycle Support. After this date, CentOS 7 will no longer receive any security updates or bug fixes from Red Hat.

Install alamlinux or rockylinux, install virtualization and then install both on vps servers.
