cPanel and WHM Bring Full Support to Ubuntu LTS


cPanel & WHM expand their offerings by adding full support for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

When CentOS announced, back in 2020, that was reaching end of life and migrating to CentOS Stream, cPanel & WHM announced it would no longer support the distribution. This left a lot of admins in the lurch, forcing them to migrate to another operating system to continue using this de facto standard tool for hosting.

Back then, cPanel & WHM announced they'd eventually add support for Ubuntu and that time is about to arrive. With the release of version 102, it's now possible to install cPanel & WHM on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

On this expansion, Aila Power, VP of Product Development at cPanel, said, "Ubuntu is a solid Linux Distribution with a great track record of security and innovation. I’m really excited that cPanel & WHM are now available on this distro that is the first choice for many when they build a new application."

cPanel & WHM version 102 is now listed in the CURRENT tier, which means it's not yet available to the masses. Once it's listed in the RELEASE tier, you can download and install the platform on Ubuntu 20.04. This should happen this month (March 2022), so keep checking the cPanel release page to stay up-to-date.

You can also read the full release notes for V102 to see all of the new additions and fixes to the platform.
