CentOS is a Linux distribution that provides a free, enterprise-class, community-supported computing platform functionally compatible with its upstream source, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
The Vesta Control Panel is a free, open source control panel with website, email, database, and DNS functionalities. In this tutorial you will upgrade the control panel PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.3 on CentOS server.
The following resources are required to complete this tutorial:
- An CentOS 7 server
- A domain name pointer at your server. We will use server3.prado.lt throughout this tutorial.
