GreenGeeks July 2022 VPS Platform Update


The GreenGeeks group is satisfied to declare that we’ve started conveying AlmaLinux 8 on our Managed VPS platform.

How does this influence my current VPS?

Existing VPS plans won’t be impacted by this change. Just recently conveyed compartments will use AlmaLinux 8.

All existing CentOS 7 holders will arrive at End of Life on June 30, 2024, after which they will get no further security updates.

What’s the contrast among AlmaLinux and CentOS?

AlmaLinux is a variation of Red Hat Linux kept up with by the CloudLinux group as a trade for CentOS 8.

The CloudLinux group made AlmaLinux when the delivery model for CentOS 8 out of the blue different to a moving delivery, and the CentOS group declared they would never again be keeping up with CentOS 8.

The delivered AlmaLinux dispersion has negligible contrasts from CentOS and completely upholds cPanel.

What enhancements could I at any point expect with AlmaLinux?

  • Newer Linux Kernel version
  • Updated application bundle versions
  • Improved organizing stack
  • Overhaul of the bundle the board framework (yum versus dnf)

What PHP Versions are accessible with AlmaLinux?

AlmaLinux gives the accompanying PHP versions:

  • PHP 7.2
  • PHP 7.3
  • PHP 7.4
  • PHP 8.0
  • PHP 8.1

Versions underneath PHP 7.2 are NOT accessible on AlmaLinux 8-based VPS; these PHP variants are as yet accessible on CentOS 7.

How do I move up to AlmaLinux on my current CentOS VPS?

Unfortunately, a set up overhaul is preposterous on your CentOS 7 VPS. Existing CentOS 7 holders will keep on getting security refreshes until June 30, 2024.

If you wish to move up to AlmaLinux, buy another VPS and present a Migration Request inside your GreenGeeks Dashboard. The GreenGeeks Support Team will duplicate over your current cPanel accounts and any connected settings free of charge.
