    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.

    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.
