I need to move WHM from one server to another and I have a problem with Tomcat. Old server is using Tomcat7 and I can't install it on a new one. There is only Tomcat8.5 at EasyApache4, I know but the funny thing is, old server (which seems that is also using EasyApache4) have it installed along with Private JVM at every cPanel account. Is there any way I can install or replicate this setup from the old server? I assume the reason why the old server still has it is that it was there before the server got upgraded and it's impossible to install it to a fresh WHM now again. Is there any work-around? Btw, I am perfectly aware that downgrading is never good, but that's the requirement.

I've also tried installing older version of WHM so I can use EasyApache3 which is compatible with Tomcat7, but you guys changed the way trial licenses are purchased (Unable to Update the License) and I can't find the way to get a trial license in a store and try with the older version.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Hello @bhc_comp

As EasyApache 3 was removed as of cPanel 78, and we are now on cPanel 90, there is no longer any supported way to revert to those old versions of cPanel and EasyApache.

While there are no longer any cPanel-supported Tomcat 7 packages, you might be able to manually install Tomcat 7. The following 3rd party tutorials might point you in the right direction to accomplish that:

However, note that manually installing Tomcat 7 in a standalone manner will not incorporate any of the integrations of the deprecated EasyApache 3 packages.

For further assistance with this you can find a list of system administrators on the following page:
