    This line appeared among my cron jobs:

    /usr/local/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/quickinstall/scripts/checkupdates.pl

    I assume cpanel folks installed it. Should I remove it? What is it for?

    Hello,

    That's not a cron job provided by cPanel. A Google search shows that QuickInstall is a third-party plugin used for the automatic installation of applications (e.g. PHP scripts).

    Thank you.
