PCI & VPS - Image changelog

Find out what has changed in the images provided for Public Cloud & VPS

Last updated 9th February 2021

Objective

OVHcloud offers a variety of operating systems and pre-installed applications on the VPS and Public Cloud products. As a provider, we ensure the images we provide to our customers are kept up to date which means we regularly release new images. Transparency is key to OVHcloud and we intend to share what changes we make to any image during any new release. This page will allow customers to track the changelog of our images.

Requirements

This documentation will only apply to VPS and Public Cloud instances.

2021 Changelog

This section will display changelogs for each month in the year 2021.

February

--- 03 February 2021 ---
Image: All
Product: Public Cloud / VPS
Travaux: http://travaux.ovh.net/?do=details&id=48820
Changelog:
1. All images contain new package / security updates from vendors since our last image updates
2. Centos 7 - cPanel image: we disabled QEMU Guest Agent on this image due to issues caused by creation of a virtfs when allowing Jailed Shell access. This virtfs cannot be frozen by QEMU Guest Agent and therefore causes a kernel panic. Customers with previous release of this image should check [this guide for fix](https://docs.ovh.com/gb/en/vps/cpanel_auto_backup/)
