Hi,

Very simple question, but is Cloudlinux 7 production ready yet?
I know there were some kernel issues and that CL7 was constantly crashing. Have these been resolved yet?

We also had kernel crashing on 2 out of 3 new servers.
cPanel installed snap:
https://github.com/cPanelTechs/SysSnapv2

But kernel have not crashed yet, but I would not recommend it for production yet.
There are no new kernel released yet and we are using:
3.10.0-329.7.2.lve1.4.4.el7.x86_64

Hi Bogdan,

Have you had any reports of issues since the 3.10.0-427.10.1.lve1.4.7.el7 release?

We deploying a whole bunch of new servers would prefer to go with CL7. I would hate to go with CL6 if I don't have too, as full updates stop for CentOS 6 next year.

We\'ve been running Cloudlinux 7 on a production server with 300 accounts and apart from a bug that forced us to reboot because new accounts weren\'t accessible we haven\'t had any actual crashes.


Yesterday we encountered a bug with crontab having the wrong chmod (755 instead of 4755) but apart from that everything has been smooth.

We run kernel care, I don\'t know if it applied the latest bug fixes or if we have to reboot again for that.

Cloudlinux 6 is defently more stable than Cloudlinux 7, but in our oppinion Cloudlinux 7 is production ready. The more people that use it the more stable it will get.

It\'s been a month since your last post, has CL7 reached the ready for production point yet?

We've had no crashes so far with our 300 accounts. We don't use db governor as we had issues with it on Cloulînux 6 and from what I've read there have been some bugs causee by it on CL7.

So far we're glad to have gone with cloudlinux 7 and not 6.

Most probably it depends from different hardware used. As of now we still to not recommend CloudLinux 7 for production server, however have few thousands of running servers already. The chance of collision is like 0.1% of total count.
With CentOS 6 ending full updated in February 2017 (9 months away) isn\'t it cutting production ready a bit close?

We have it now on some servers and haven\'t had any issues and kernel crashes lately. So we will go for it on all new servers we setup :)

We currently have 117 days uptime with our Coudlinux 7 production serever. This server hosts about 400 accounts at the moment, with small to medium sized websites. We don\'t use mysqlgovernor but do use most other things. In our oppinion it\'s stable.

Anyone using CL7 on servers with 1000+ websites?

We been running it on 1 or 2 servers, but there are very few sites on them and it\'s been good so far.
Still deciding if we want to use it for our production servers.

I think I have around 5 servers with CL 7.x and none have had any issues lately.
Some of these have around 1000+ accounts, not all of those have hosting packages but they are stable :-)

Not sure if I'm right or wrong but personally i believe that ever since they made kernelcare , kernel updates (stable/production) are a rarity now. Might be a way to promote kernelcare.

Question for the official staff , are there plans to rebase to https://docs.openvz.org/virtuozzo_7_readme.webhelp/_what_8217_s_new.html ?
