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.
