A Brand New Tomcat is Here!

cPanel Blog -

In cPanel & WHM version 76, we implemented a new version of Apache Tomcat® for users that run EasyApache 4. This iteration represents a complete overhaul of our implementation and provides substantial differences from the EasyApache 3 version.

Cloud-Based Hostname Workaround

cPanel Blog -

It’s very common these days for hosting providers to offer cloud-based hosting solutions to their customers. In configuring these servers ourselves, and in interactions with our customers’ servers, an issue has come to our attention where the dhclient script does not preserve locally-configured hostnames.

We wante to provide a workaround solution for this while continuing to investigate a more permanent, long-term solution. What …
