EOL: CentoS 7 - June 30, 2024, AlmaLinux 8 - 01 May 2024
« on: February 08, 2024, 10:15:23 AM »
Hello,

I want to install a new server with CWP, I was thinking of doing it with AlmaLinux 9, but I don't see anything that indicates that it is compatible with this distribution.

As CentOS 7 and AlmaLinux are EOL in maximum 4 months, do you have any information or advice to give me.

Thank you for your help.

CWP isn't supported on AlmaLinux 9, yet.

AlmaLinux 8.x EOL isn't until 2029
per: https://wiki.almalinux.org/FAQ.html

AlmaLinux 9.x isn't far behind at 2032

So you are good setting up a AlmaLinux 8.x server with CWP.

And at this point I'm guessing CWP might leapfrog 9 to the next version, kinda like what ionCube did with PHP 8.0.

Then there is TuxCare, who for a monthly fee will do extended support.
