That’s right! As of the time of writing, cPanel 72 is in the “CURRENT” tier, meaning it is Release Candidate stage and approaching the point where it’s ready for use on public-facing servers. This release has tonnes of handy features, including Git Version Control, an In-Browser Terminal and Improvements to the backup system.
Let’s take a more in-depth look at some of the improvements in version 72!
The In-Browser Terminal
Gone are the days of needing a dedicated SSH client such as PuTTY (Windows) in order to manage your files via the command line! The upcoming release provides this functionality right from your chosen web browser. Not only does this provide more flexibility, i.e. when you’re on the move with no option to install an SSH client, but it adds a wealth of handy features at your fingertips that you get out-of-the-box with CentOS and most other Linux distributions. You can learn more about this new functionality in the Release Notes.
Greater control over your backups
Normally, the cPanel Backup System provides the ability for end-users to restore files. With version 72, the option to restore entire directories has been added. Ever deleted that all important wp-content folder with all your images? Recovering from such a situation with backups should now become that bit easier. More information, as before, can be found in the cPanel Release Notes.
There’s also a newer version of phpMyAdmin, an improved user interface in the Site Software end-user feature and much more still to be planned!
