CentOS 7 Update to CentOS 8 Stream
« on: December 13, 2020, 06:01:13 PM »
Hello,

I've heard about the news of CentOS 7 EoL in 2024. Just wondering if there will be a way to upgrade to CentOS 8 Stream, keeping all CWP configuration + data in place?

Would be nice if there is an easy upgrade path as migrating everything over to a new machine is a pain in the neck.

centos 7 is still the recommended version so migration to centos 8 is not yet recommended.
VPS & Dedicated server provider with included FREE Managed support for CWP.

*** Don't allow that your server or website is down, choose hosting provider with included expert managed support for your CWP.

From first hand experience, there is no way to go from CentOS 7 to CentOS 8 or Stream.
We had to bring up new servers and the use the migration tool built into CWP.

That being said, studio4host is correct. CWP is written primarily for CentOS 7.
And since that support doesn't end until 2024, I would wait and see what happens with Rocky and CloudLinux.

Just my 2 cents.
