Hi Dude. Today i will write post about install Alma Linux 8. This is very basic and and actually this OS installation is outdated because out there already use cloud base. In cloud base, user just click and deploy is available in 5 minutes.

Why Alma Linux?

This is a very interesting question. In my opinion there are several things that made me choose Alma Linux.

  • AlmaLinux OS is 1:1 binary compatible with RHEL® and pre-Stream CentOS. Ths is claimed that declared in website.
  • Used in cPanel/WHM. As we know cPanel WHM is a Web Hosting Management company that chose Alma Linux as one of the operating systems that supports installation.
  • Maintain configuration structure of server that were previously based on Centos or Redhat OS.
