Hey guys,

11.36 is sweet, and super fast but....

With all those deprecated scripts, what are the alternatives?

I've found I can replicate the functionality of eximup for example by running:

rpm -e --nodeps exim.package
/scripts/check_cpanel_rpm --fix


I don't want to have to run this every time though. (and for all the different programs such as mysql)

Will we ever be getting an 'official cPanel yum repo?'

Also, /scripts/mailperm functionality seems a bit different, can anyone confirm/deny this?

Thanks!

Hello :)

This is mentioned in the 11.36 release notes:

cPanel 11.36 Release Notes - Script Deprecations

The following command will provide you with more information about /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms:

Code:
# /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms -help
You mentioned that you do not want to use this method. Could you provide some examples of times when you have to manually reinstall a service such as Exim? Typically, any problems you experience should be resolved by troubleshooting the specific error message instead of simply running an update.

Also, /scripts/mailperm functionality seems a bit different, can anyone confirm/deny this?
This command will output information as it completes now, however it has the same functionality. You can review this via:

Code:
# /scripts/mailperm --help
Thank you.
