cPanel 32 Bit EOL Reminder

In addition to CentOS 5 reaching its end of life on March 31st, 2017, cPanel has also announced that it will end support for the 32-bit version of CentOS 6 on that date as well. Their 56 version is the last one that runs on both CentOS 5 and CentOS 6 32-bit. Therefore, we also recommend anyone who is using cPanel on either distro to plan a migration schedule either to CentOS 6 64-bit or CentOS 7 prior to that date to avoid any disruptions from security issues. As with everyone on CentOS 5, we will be happy to help migrate anyone to a supported distro. We will also be contacting everyone with managed services to work out a migration plan as well to a supported distro so that you can continue to receive the latest features and security updates for your hosting services.

If you have any questions about issue, please contact our support team and we’ll be happy to answer them.

CentOS 5 End Of Life Reminder

We’d like to remind everyone that CentOS 5 reaches its end of life on March 31, 2017, just six months from now. After this date, no further security updates will be provided by RedHat or the CentOS team for this operating system. If you are running your own server, we recommend that you start planning a migration of your server to a supported OS prior to this date to avoid any issues from outdated security packages. We will be happy to help set up a new server at no charge for 14 days to allow you time to upgrade without added costs. We’ll also be happy to help you transfer your data over. Just contact our support staff and we’ll work out a migration schedule with you. We will also be scheduling upgrades for our managed customers to CentOS 6 or 7 depending on your current setup prior to the March 31st deadline.

If you have any questions about this upcoming deadline, feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss it further with you.
