How to upgrade

We’ve started a gradual rollout of the updated cloudlinux-release package that brings necessary repo updates for 8.7.

Please, follow these steps to upgrade CloudLinux 8.6 to 8.7 manually:

  1. Update cloudlinux-release package from rollout slot:
# dnf --enablerepo=cloudlinux-rollout-5-bypass install cloudlinux-release
  1. Do system upgrade:
# dnf update

Review dnf output and accept the update.

CloudLinux 8.7 repos have fewer packages than CloudLinux releases before 8.5. Starting with version 8.5, CloudLinux is based on AlmaLinux, which is 1:1 RHEL or CentOS and doesn’t provide several devel and static packages. These packages are in the devel repo now which is disabled by default. If needed, you can enable the devel repo while installing packages, though it is not recommended to update from it or enable it permanently.
Here is an example:

# dnf --enablerepo=devel install bash-devel
