RHEL v6 EOL Reminder

This is a reminder that Redhat Enterprise Linux and CentOS v6 will enter End Of Life at the end of November 2020. This means that the OS will no longer receive security or bug fix updates and so should not be used on any server connected to the internet. For more information regarding OS EOL, see:

https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata

https://wiki.centos.org/About/Product

Anyone still running this OS should have or be currently making plans to migrate to v7 or v8 before then.

While our scripts and products may continue to work on v6, once EOL has been reached we will no longer be developing for that OS version and will not provide any support for it.

Therefore, we will not install or support RHEL/CentOS/CloudLinux v6 beyond the end of this month, and will also not provide our cPanel Server Service for v6 either.

RHEL/CentOS v7 and v8 are fully supported.

New csf v14.08

Changes:

  • Added missing images/ subdir to webmin and interworx installers
  • Added new option LF_TEMP_EMAIL_ALERT. This allows the disabling of temp IP block emails. It is enabled by default (send temp email alerts as before)

New csf v14.06

Changes:

  • If DOCKER is enabled and the iptables nat table exists, csf now creates a DOCKER chain in the nat table for IPv4
  • cPanel additions to csf.pignore on new and existing installs
  • Disable reputation service on error
  • Added new options MESSENGERV3PERMS and MESSENGERV3GROUP for the creation of the MESSENGER_USER public_html directory. See csf.conf for information, defaults set for each install control panel type where possible
  • Added exe:/sbin/rngd to csf.pignore for new installations

ConfigServer Scripts on cPanel v92 and CentOS v8

For those venturing into the new world of cPanel v92 in the EDGE tier on CentOS v8.2, our initial tests show that all of our scripts and products install and work as expected.

We had already done extensive work on CentOS v8 with csf, cxs and MailScanner to ensure they work in this new OS iteration (mostly on DirectAdmin) and the cPanel environment continues to provide for the resources needed to make installation, configuration and functionality straightforward.

Changes:

  • Fixed reporting of MySQL status errors in MailControl module
  • Changed MySQL characterset for tables from utf8 to utf8mb4 on new installs
  • Ensure the exim custom template directory is created on DA while installing
  • Fixed Search Reset button in end-user MailControl UI not working
  • Fixed Ham/Spam buttons in end-user MailControl UI when feature not enabled
  • Added “View in Browser” action in MailControl email view for html email bodies and other attachments for admin user

New osm v1.27

Changes:

  • Fixed osmd startup condition that could lead to removal of the process pid file if already running
  • Ensure any Storable problems are captured rather than causing the process to die
  • Ensure child processes do not remove pid file during process termination
  • Fixed issue where main parent could terminate unexpectedly

New csf v14.05

Changes:

  • Modified dovecot pop3d/imapd log line parsing to repeat single lines reporting multiple login failure attempts
