RHEL 8 Repos still avalable?

I just upgraded my server (currently running Owncloud 10.0) to RHEL 8 from RHEL 7. I’m not seeing a RHEL8 repos. Does that mean I need to use the tarballs for ugrading Owncloud?

Server configuration

Operating system:
RHEL 8.6
Web server:
Apache 2.4.37
Maria DB 15.1
PHP version:
ownCloud version: (see ownCloud admin page)
Updated from an older ownCloud or fresh install:
Where did you install ownCloud from:
RHEL7 Repos
Signing status (ownCloud 9.0 and above):

Login as admin user into your ownCloud and access 
paste the results into https://gist.github.com/ and puth the link here.

The content of config/config.php:

Log in to the web-UI with an administrator account and click on
'admin' -> 'Generate Config Report' -> 'Download ownCloud config report'
This report includes the config.php settings, the list of activated apps
and other details in a well sanitized form.


If you have access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ config:list system
from within your ownCloud installation folder

*ATTENTION:* Do not post your config.php file in public as is. Please use one of the above
methods whenever possible. Both, the generated reports from the web-ui and from occ config:list
consistently remove sensitive data. You still may want to review the report before sending.
If done manually then it is critical for your own privacy to dilligently
remove *all* host names, passwords, usernames, salts and other credentials before posting.
You should assume that attackers find such information and will use them against your systems.

List of activated apps:

If you have access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ app:list
from within your ownCloud installation folder.

Are you using external storage, if yes which one: local/smb/sftp/…

Are you using encryption: yes/no

Are you using an external user-backend, if yes which one: LDAP/ActiveDirectory/Webdav/…

LDAP configuration (delete this part if not used)

With access to your command line run e.g.:
sudo -u www-data php occ ldap:show-config
from within your ownCloud installation folder

Without access to your command line download the data/owncloud.db to your local
computer or access your SQL server remotely and run the select query:
SELECT * FROM `oc_appconfig` WHERE `appid` = 'user_ldap';

Eventually replace sensitive data as the name/IP-address of your LDAP server or groups.

Client configuration

RHEL-8 is no longer officially supported at the Suse OBS

Afaik, RHEL-7 is a still active LTS version, while RHEL-8 is end-of-life.
It seems, technically OBS is still able to build for RHEL-8, so I can manually add that target, not sure if that helps you. Another issue is:

Please also upgrade to PHP-7.4 first – support for 7.2 was already dropped with ownCloud 10.9.0

went ahead and did the upgrade using the tarball. It was mostly painless.

Getting the php version up to 7.4 was more of a pain (I just updated the machine, so I needed to redo a lot of work there). However, it is always been an issue trying to run ownCloud on a RHEL server, Red Hat likes to stick with the old versions of php way past their official EOL.

I’m a bit confused about the message with RHEL-8 as EOL. On Red Hat’s site, they are only doing security patches on RHEL7, but RHEL8 should be going for a while. Are you referring to Suse OBS support (with Red Hat changing their policy, I’m not surprised that Suse would stop supporting them).

Thanks for the offer, but I’m now up and running with the latest version, so no need to do anything special.
