Announcing EOL of ePortal on CentOS 6

June 8, 2020 - TuxCare PR Team


Cloudlinux announces End of Life initiation for the following product series with the intent of discontinuing its availability: ePortal on CentOS 6.

This Product EOL Announcement signifies that a product series has entered the final phase of the Product Life Cycle, and serves as advance notice of product termination per the End of Life (EOL) policy.

Stage 1 – EOL Announce Date: June 6, 2020

Stage 2 – Last Date to get support and updates: July 6, 2020

With the discontinuation of ePortal on CenOS 6, a new version of KernelCare.ePortal has been released. Now with the ability to use custom paths for certificates and uses system certificates by default – as opposed to the previous version, which worked with certificates from certified lib.

KernelCare.ePortal is a patch server that runs internally, but outside of your firewall. It acts as a bridge between internal servers and the main KernelCare patch server. This approach is ideal for staging and production environments which need strict isolation from external networks, or which requires stricter control over the patches to be applied. You can learn more about ePortal in the KernelCare Technical Whitepaper.

KernelCare team recommendation is to migrate to Docker based ePortal image, as described here (check migration chapter).
