The cPanel update logs are in /var/cpanel/updatelogs

Code:
# ls -l /var/cpanel/updatelogs/
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  79023 Nov 18 00:04 update.1321570802.log

Thanks for the reply...but not what I am after... (that is UPDATE logs)


re: when last cPanel Upgrade was done

I am trying to look back and find out when last VERSION was upgraded...as I have this server set to "Manual"

Hope that clarifies my request?

Regards, Jim

Hello,

cPanel upgrades are shown in the same location at /var/cpanel/updatelogs where you will need to check the first reference of the current version you have on the machine to show what date it happened:

Code:
grep version /var/cpanel/updatelogs/*
Please replace version with the number of your current cPanel, which you can obtain using:

Code:
cat /usr/local/cpanel/version
Thanks!

Thank you

re: you will need to check the first reference of the current version you have on the machine to show what date it happened:

But I had to look in each file for the version change date... but I did narrow it down..

I was just wondering instead of looking in the file, I could have search for a pattern in overall server log for something such as "updatecp" (or what ever script is run when pressing 'MANUAL UPDATE'

Thanks again, as at least I found what date I did the manual upgrade...

Jim

Did you try the grep I mentioned for the version? The logs are sorted by date and timestamp, so the first instance of that version in grep would be the oldest log file. You could then check the date stamp. By opening the file, you might well have altered the date and timestamp.
