cPanel Inc., announces the release of cPanel & WHM 11.36 to the RELEASE tier.

Included in this brand new release are further improvements to the update system, building on work started with cPanel & WHM 11.30. A new staging step during installation allows a variety of checks to occur prior to changing the cPanel & WHM installation. This makes both new installation, and upgrades, more reliable.

cPanel & WHM 11.36 also brings an entirely new system for managing applications, based upon the tried-and-true RPM packaging format. By distributing applications via RPM we are able to reduce cPanel & WHM installation time by 30%, on average. The new system also provides integrators and system deployers a simplified means of distributing applications with cPanel & WHM.

We are happy to announce that cPanel & WHM 11.36 brings a modern version of perl with it. Perl 5.14 is available with all versions of 11.36 and newer. This change brings an end to the older perl 5.8.8 distributed with prior versions of cPanel & WHM.

Also in cPanel & WHM 11.36 is support for Apache 2.4, provided via EasyApache. Apache 2.4 brings many new features and performance benefits to your web hosting platform.

Other features are also available in version 11.36:

The email auto discovery feature, first introduced in cPanel & WHM 11.34, has been updated with improved compatibility with existing setups.
It is now possible to display the number of files used by an account, in the cPanel Stats Bar.
The ability to track mail sent by web applications is improved through new functions to query the web server, and with X-PHP-Script functionality added to PHP.

cPanel thanks the members of our EDGE-Users community for their feedback and testing of the development releases.

Please note, after upgrading to the new release, a downgrade to an older version will not be permitted.

This update crashes MySQL!
It appends to my.cnf "open_files_limit=8454" but without putting newline which in our case resulted in having:
"max_allowed_packet = 1073741824open_files_limit=8454"
which prevented mysql from restarting.

A check should be added in the script for new line.

Im unable to fill a bug there as there is a JS error there:
Uncaught ReferenceError: display_next_step is not defined - tickets.cpanel.net:303
It occurs when I try to click Continue on 02.

- - - Updated - - -

Another minor issue - in Easy apache - the a help link when More Info for 2.4 is expanded "http://go.cpanel.net/easld" does not redirect to any content.

Not sure what the problem is with the website. Did you skip some part thats required? Can you please try another browser just to rule out browser issues?

Thanks.

Please open a ticket about this if you would please. The cPanel Technical Support team tracks and responds to issues faster when they have multiple reports to work from and access to servers with issues after the upgrade.

Waiting on assistance from the forum community might not be the best way to go here.

Testing in advance on stage servers is important. Just as important as staying up with the latest news on the multiple changes that have taken place. Might I ask if you did any testing in advance on a stage?

I've read your other thread here and would be curious to hear what the results of a ticket to cPanel Support were. Did you open one yet?

Thanks!

Another minor issue - in Easy apache - the a help link when More Info for 2.4 is expanded "http://go.cpanel.net/easld" does not redirect to any content.
Thank you for the report; the redirect is updated to point to the correct location. For reference, here is the documentation it was meant to refer to: EasyApache Support Level Definitions

Upgrade to WHM 11.36.0 (build 14) caused web servers to go down. It wasn't from the WHM 11.36.0 (build 14) push, but when I signed on there were 3 security questions. I accepted the defaults and I think that's when it died.

I've been trying to find what these 3 security questions were so I could turn them off (or back like they were). The changelog files I find don't mention this kind of thing at all. Where can I find out what these 3 new options or security questions were?

Highly important as I have at least 3 sites down.

Thanks!
