CentOS migration plan for 2024?
« on: March 05, 2023, 12:11:47 AM »
I'm currently running CWP Pro on CentOS 7 as recommended by  I'm going to be building a new server later this year with a go-live date of April 2024, so what OS can I expect to be using then?  CentOS 7 goes EOL at the end of June 2024 and CentOS 8 Stream expires a month before that.

I'd be tempted to go for Rocky 8 which EOLs at the end of May 2029 but the installation guide says "Compatible but with possible issues, Recommended is to use CentOS 8 Stream or CentOS 7".  Same caveat for Alma 8 and Oracle 8.  Thanks.

Based on Starburst's recommendation and other reading I have done, AlmaLinux 8 is my plan -- around the same timeframe as you. (Stream is lock-in, no way out if you go that route... Rocky is a rather rocky road, from what I hear.)
