CloudLinux 8 with 4.18 kernel is ready for production

 

CL-OS-8-stable

These tough days we are still here and working to make your shared hosting servers stable and efficient with a new CloudLinux 8 with the 4.18 kernel.

We released the CloudLinux 8 candidate a month ago and it showed a great performance and strong workability on the DirectAdmin servers.

We also conducted our regular synthetic tests to ensure CloudLinux 8 stability and fixed the known issue with CageFS and Python applications mentioned in the CloudLinux 8 release candidate announcement.

Please also note that the cloudlinux-release and rhn-client-tools packages related to the gradual rollout system were released to our production repository.

How to update

To update from CloudLinux 8 to the new CloudLinux 8.1, run the following commands:

$ dnf clean all
$ dnf upgrade

How to install

The best way to install CloudLinux 8 is to convert a CentOS 8 server.

  1. Get either by getting trial subscription or by purchasing subscription.
  2. Download the conversion script: cldeploy.
  3. If you have an activation key, run the following commands:
    $ wget https://repo.cloudlinux.com/cloudlinux/sources/cln/cldeploy
    $ sh cldeploy -k
    
  4.  If you have an IP-based license, run the following commands:
    $ sh cldeploy -i
     
  5. Reboot by running the following command:
    $ reboot

Once you reboot, you are running CloudLinux kernel with LVE enabled.

Alternatively, you can download and install CloudLinux 8 from the following repositories:
