Hi I aploigise in advance - I would consider myself a beginner:

I have had this email sent to me at 02:24:

Problems were detected with cPanel-provided files which are RPM controlled.
If you did not make these changes intentionally, you can correct them by running:

> /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix

The following RPMs are found to be altered from their original install state:
bandmin,1.6.1,9.cp1136,/var/log/bandwidth


Then at another email was sent to me at 06.05:

The file system /dev/md127p1, which is mounted at /boot, has reached warn status because it is 87% full.

Server: [i've removed this]
Primary IP: [i've removed this]
Notification Type: diskwarn
Filesystem: /dev/md127p1
Mount Point: /boot
Percentage Full: 87%
Disk Information:
Used: 0.08GB
Available: 0.01GB
Total: 0.09GB
ChkServd Version: 15.2
Configure system disk usage notifications Disable HTML notifications


Is this an important warning and is this a common issue or some fault? I would be grateful of the community's support.

Hello :)

These are two separate warning messages.

1. Please run the following command:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix
Check to see if you continue to receive these email warnings after running the above command.

2. Check to see what files in your /boot partition are using up your space. The following document is helpful for checking the space of a partition:

cPanel - Manage HD Space

Note: It's a good idea to open separate threads for each individual issue should you experience multiple issues in the future.

Thank you.

Thank you okay let's focus on issue 1.

What happens if I choose to ignore this command? Is it critical that I run this as the website seems to be fine?

My main worry is that if I run this it will cause me downtime? Is this true?

While it's not necessary for your websites to operate, it's a good idea to ensure your RPMs are installed correctly. The use of the "/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix" command should not cause any problems for Apache or any other services.

Thank you.
