Even if you did have an RS232 port on the box, the serial drivers for 
CentOS 7 have
never worked correctly.  I had an application using RS232 that worked 
under CentOS 6, and then worked intermittently under CentOS 7, and 
failed miserably
on CentOS 8.  The handwriting on the RedHat wall says, "nobody uses 
RS232 anymore!"
I moved the app to a Raspberry Pi 3B+, using the USB serial adapters, 
and it works
perfectly again.
