Support for cPanel & WHM Version 62 extended to June, 2018

EasyApache 2018-01-25 Security Release
cPanel & WHM LTS Version 62 EOL June, 2018
cPanel TSR-2018-0001 Full Disclosure

Support for the current LTS (Long Term Support) version, cPanel & WHM Version 62, has been extended to June 30th, 2018. This extension is a one-time extension and has been granted to help ease the scheduling pressure caused by security flaws in the kernel of many servers that use cPanel & WHM.

Support is not extended for any other Version, and Version 70 will still be the only new cPanel & WHM version to enter the LTS tier in 2018.

As of June 30th, 2018 Version 62 will no longer be supported by cPanel except when upgrading to a supported version.

In accordance with our EOL policy (https://go.cpanel.com/longtermsupport), 62 will continue functioning on servers where it is already installed. However, no further updates, including security fixes and installations, will be provided for 62 once it reaches End of Life.

The next LTS version of cPanel & WHM, version 70, is the CURRENT tier. We anticipate version 70 entering the STABLE tier in early- to mid-March.

If your server setup complicates the process of migrating to a newer version of cPanel & WHM (an upgrade blocker list is available at https://go.cpanel.com/blockers), then the cPanel support team is here to help! Simply open a support ticket at https://tickets.cpanel.net/submit so that our knowledgeable support team can provide recommendations, migration assistance, and more.
