I just decided to try kernelcare yesterday. Problem is, CloudLinux hasn't released an official kernel for some time now for version 7, and because of various vulnerabilities we've had to use beta kernels. I can't get kernelcare to work because the beta kernels are not recognized. Please get us a production kernel soon so we can implement kernelcare!

Roll back to Stable kernel. Install kernelcare and use it for safe.
