For cPanel & WHM version 56

(Home >> Software >> System Update)

Overview

This interface allows you to manually update software dependencies that your operating system installed, and which cPanel & WHM requires in order to run.

Generally, the system updates software packages during the automatic update that you can configure in WHM's Update Preferences interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences). However, if you disabled automatic updates and wish to update the software dependencies, you must run the update manually.

Important:

  • You cannot use this feature to update cPanel & WHM. To update cPanel & WHM manually, use WHM's Upgrade to Latest Version interface (Home >> cPanel >> Upgrade to Latest Version).
  • This feature does not update your operating system's kernel. To update your operating system kernel, run the yum update command as the root user from the command line.

Note:

To update software dependencies from the command line, use the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/sysup script.
