You could just try:

Code:
yum update rsync
Is there a reason you need to update rsync? I wouldn't suggest using a version higher than what yum provides.

Thanks but that fails, I have the centos 4.8 on this server.

Is there a way to do from source?

Here is the yum error:

yum update rsync

I would also love to solve the mystery of how to upgrade rsync while ensuring it still plays well with the rest of WHM. I'm running Redhat Enterprise 5 on one server and CentOS 5.5 which both run rsync 2.6.8. I do a nightly backup and the server load gets so high my system is unresponsive for several minutes each evening... not good! Doing some research it seems rsync 3.x goes a long way to reduce the cpu load.

Anybody have any advice or a resource to turn to to do the installation? I found a few other threads on here all asking the same question.

Hey, that's easy ;-). Thanks InterServed. That's just what I needed. Already making a huge difference using Rsync 3!
