    Hello folks,

    long time lurker, first time poster.

    I made a change to spamd and now cPanel keeps sending me "Altered RPMs found" notifications every single day. Could've sworn I saw some information, albeit months ago, on how to stop that from happening.

    If I run the --fix, would that not overwrite the change(s) I made?

    Any light shed on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    -moO-

    Hello,

    This document should help:

    Set an RPM to unmanaged

    Keep in mind that if you set spamd to "umanaged", you won't receive the updates to the spamd package from cPanel.

    Thank you.

    Hmmm, sub-optimal but that's how the cookie crumbles.

    Thank you for the reply!

    Could you elaborate on what your ideal setup would be? For instance, are you looking to have the RPMs updated with your custom changes in-place?

    Thank you.

    These would be my ideal steps:

    - apply change to spamd
    - run script to let cPanel know that this change is on purpose
    - cPanel acknowledges change and won't notify about this specific change
    - cPanel will still keep an eye on spamd for future changes and notify if it happens
    - spamd will continue to be automatically updated because disabling notifications was not required
    - rainbows and unicorns

    This does not happen once you use your own custom instance of spamd because changes to a customized instance of spamd may break it and lead to it failing to start.

    Thank you.
