    Fortunately, there is no need to wait for providers to support it natively.
    With the official migrate script below, you could easily migrate CentOS 8.*, Oracle Linux 8.* and RHEL 8.* to AlmaLinux 8.*.

    I have tested it on a few dedi's and it works perfectly so far.
    But that is actually no wonder. It is more or less the same product with a different color jacket.

    @deltahf yeah got that Hivelocity email too - good news for native out of the box AlmaLinux support. Hopefully, other web hosts follow suit.

    @buik yeah migration scripts are nice though having it out of the box is more convenient and well its also a sign of support and confidence in the new alternative OSes when web hosts start offering them :)
