    Thank you very much for the answers.
    I have one more question: what about the line calling this:
    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/cpaddons_report.pl --notify
    That line is in cron since version 11.2* or before. What is this actually doing? If I dont use the cPaddons can I safely remove this from cron? I can recall that addons were planned to be removed from WHM. Is this right?

    Hello :)

    I moved this question into it's own thread for you. The following cron job is the report script for cPAddons:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi/cpaddons_report.pl --notify
    cPAddons are supported and there are no plans to remove them at this time. You can review the "cPAddons Site Software" tab in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings" to configure how cPAddons are handled. If you do not use any form of cPAddons and you disable the "Site Software" option for your clients, then deleting that cron job would not cause any problems.

    Thank you.
