You can always uninstall CloudLinux. In this case, we will ‘convert’ the system

back to CentOS. Even if the original system was RHEL — we will still convert to

‘CentOS’ state.

To uninstall CloudLinux follow below steps:

wget -O cldeploy

sh cldeploy -c

Please, note that some of the packages from CloudLinux repo will still be present. They are same as CentOS packages, and don’t have to be removed. They will be updated in the future from CentOS repositories, as new versions come out.


You can use below steps further:

Check if your server is Cloudlinux installed in it using below command.

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/cloudlinux_system_install -c

Update your CentOS-provided RPMs

yum upgrade -y

Rebuild Apache

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/easyapache –build


/scripts/easyapache –build

Reinstall a non-CloudLinux kernel.

yum –disableexcludes=all install kernel

Remove CloudLinux Kernel

rpm -qa |awk ‘/^kernel.*lve/ {print $1|”xargs yum -y erase”}’

Reinstall any CloudLinux-provided RPMs that are also provided by CentOS

rpm -qa –qf “[%{VENDOR} %{NAME}\n]”|awk ‘/CloudLinux/ {print $2|”xargs yum reinstall -y”}’

Downgrade any CloudLinux provided RPMs to the CentOS version

rpm -qa –qf “[%{VENDOR} %{NAME}\n]”|awk ‘/CloudLinux/ {print $2|”xargs yum downgrade -y”}’

Remove any remaining CloudLinux specific RPMs

rpm -qa –qf “[%{VENDOR} %{NAME}\n]”|awk ‘/CloudLinux/ {print $2|”xargs yum erase -y”}’

Upgrade any downgraded CentOS provided RPMs

yum upgrade -y

Reboot the server to use the new non-CloudLinux kernel
