Copy pasting my message from Revora's Discord since network admins might not be active there:

tl;dr Can users update their environment via e.g WHM or is this reserved for revora administrators only?

Thanks for your attention.

After re-reading the picture and your post here, I can 100% answer that updating the kernel is reserved to server administrators only (not necessarily Revora administrators). It doesn't make any sense to allow hostees to do such thing and it could also compromise the security of this place.

Yeah, it makes sense for it to be reserved to admins only since terminal isn't with root access either.

Since revora's running latest cPanel, just not kernel/distro (centos 6 to 7) could one of the admins log in on WHM to update that for out host?
Would help a ton in running a user service as otherwise going back to an old 2010-2011 linux environment would be neccesary to compile the required app to run on current revora,
which might not be possible without significant patches.

For details about the specific host I'm on Revora's discord or you can PM me here.
