AlmaLinux 8.3 Linux official stable release is out now. However, not many web hosts would have AlmaLinux 8.3 out of the box so need to install it via AlmaLinux 8.3 ISO media. Upcloud allows you to do custom ISO image installs via console/VNC console. Use my Upcloud referral link and get $25 free credit yourself and after your first $10 payment, I get US$50 referral credit Due to CentOS 8 EOL announcement for end of this year, several forked projects have emerged for CentOS 8 YUM/RPM based distros. One is Rocky Linux by former CentOS founder and then there's CloudLinux folk's AlmaLinux. Centmin Mod's CentOS 8 compatibility work at CentOS 8.x - Centmin Mod CentOS 8 Compatibility Worklog is still applicable in large to Rocky Linux 8.3 and AlmaLinux 8.3 Linux OS compatibility work. Update: Centmin Mod AlmaLinux 8.3 compatibility development update So Centmin Mod development work will start with AlmaLinux 8.3 Linux OS compatibility first. Below is a screenshot outline of installing AlmaLinux 8.3 Linux on Upcloud via VNC console install method Tips: After initial AlmaLinux 8.3 Linux install is complete, good idea to do a manual snapshot backup of the primary image device on Upcloud backup tab. This way you can restore to a fresh install anytime you want AlmaLinux bug tracker is at https://bugs.almalinux.org/ so useful to check if any bugs are show stoppers for you.
