Whats the best way to update cPanel/WHM??

I'm currently using Manual Update (Release Tree) and my current version is 10.6.0 R-55

I have had no problems so far with the version mentioned above. I would always like to keep it updated though.

I read someone suggesting to use /scripts/updatenow before doing a /scripts/upcp --force

i'm confused...should i simply do /scripts/upcp --force from the ssh or should i first do /scripts/updatenow or is there another script to run before or after updatenow.

Thanks in advance

Go on, have a guess
If you want to upgrade yourself, then you should monitor the changelog on http://layer1.cpanel.net and the released versions of your tree on http://layer2.cpanel.net and when you see changes that you'd like to incorporate, simpyl run the following from root shell:

/scripts/upcp

If you want automatic updates then change the settings in WHM > Update Config
