    Hey @eva2000
    I'd love to get your thoughts on events this week with WP 6.4 and Curl 7.29
    I'm in the middle of migrating a WooCommerce website over to centminmod, and I had planned on sticking with CentOS7 and 130.00beta01 for now given CentOS7 has always been rock solid for me and I've yet to do any testing with cmm and AlmaLinux/RockyLinux.

    Given the issues with Curl this week I'm reconsidering that :)


    I'm kinda caught between a rock and a hard place here and I'm leaning towards just biting the bullet and going the AlmaLinux/RockyLinux route.

    Are the betas looking solid enough for production use at this point do you think?

    Yeah read that. The issue is WordPress folks don't understand Redhat/CentOS 7 backport security fixes into same curl version 7.29 without changing version numbers so they assumed it's out of date.

    Also their updated code that broke sites seem be checking for <7.22 versions https://github.com/WordPress/Requests/pull/657/files ? From https://github.com/WordPress/Requests/issues/838 seems the problem was the code Wordpress used too check for curl <7.22 but curl 7.29 gets caught in it https://github.com/WordPress/Requests/issues/838#issuecomment-1801663517

    CentOS 7 has third party curl updater for Centmin Mod but haven't tested it lately https://community.centminmod.com/threads/centmin-mod-curl-7-48-custom-rpms.3703/

    Most of my new installs have been AlmaLinux 8 based myself but it's still beta but you can try it out anyway.

    Thanks for the super quick and informative reply :)
    I forgot that security fixes were being backported without a version number change - that's great!
    I'll give AlmaLinux a shot!

    Also FYI, if Centmin Mod Wordpress 6.4.0 users are unable to update to Wordpress 6.4.1 due to this bug as it will prevent updates, you can use Centmin Mod Wordpress auto updater cronjob script to update manually too or wait for cronjob which runs every 8hrs to auto run to update Wordpress minor versions to Wordpress 6.4.1. So most likely Centmin Mod centmin.sh menu option 22 created Wordpress sites were already fixed when the auto updater cronjob ran to update to Wordpress 6.4.1 :D The benefits of configuring automatic Wordpress minor version updates via cronjobs outside of Wordpress itself.

    To manually run centmin.sh menu option 22 Wordpress installer's auto update cronjob, run
    Code (Text):
    /root/tools/wp_updater_yourdomain.com.sh
    

    you can see which wp_updater_*.sh exists by listing your cronjobs and filter for wp_updater
    Code (Text):
    crontab -l | grep wp_updater
