Blockers for New Installations of cPanel & WHM

With the latest version of our installer, new installations of cPanel & WHM software will be subject to the following blockers:

  • The target version must be cPanel & WHM version 11.40 or higher.
  • For CentOS, CloudLinux, or RHEL operating systems, the installation must be version 6 or higher.

If either of these statements are not true, the installation will fail. These blockers are meant to encourage system administrators to use the most up-to-date software, which will prevent future issues.

To allow additional time for anyone whose servers do not yet meet these requirements, you can perform the following actions:*

  • Install cPanel & WHM version 11.38 as the target version.
  • For CentOS, CloudLinux, or RHEL operating systems, install on version 5.

*When running the installer, you must use the --force command line option. For example, sh latest --force or sh latest-dnsonly --force.
These blockers will not affect existing installations of cPanel & WHM. However, we strongly encourage system administrators to always upgrade their servers’ software to the newest version as soon as possible.
