Convert from Centos 7 to Cloud Linux 8

Does Digital Ocean offer a special rate to purchase a license for Cloud Linux 8. I am looking to upgrade from Centos 7 to Cloud Linux. Also I’m assuming its not a hard process to go from Centos 7 to Cloud Linux via the WHM dashboard?

Hello @bpaul

An upgrade to CloudLinux is available through WHM as well. You’ll need to purchase CloudLinux before you continue with the process. DigitalOcean does not provider/sell licenses and you’ll need to do that directly through cPanel.

You can check this article from cPanel’s community:

Hope that this helps!

If you want to go with CloudLinux 8, I’ll suggest checking the following artcile:

CloudLinux specifically has documentation on how you can go about achieving this.
