The 6.0 RELEASE and STABLE builds are now out. If you don't want to upgrade to cPanel 6.0, this is your last chance to set your update prefs in WHM to NEVER for cPanel.

Stable of course

in WHM, it said....

Build Types
EDGE: Edge is the bleeding edge tree. While it has the newest features; It has undergone the least amount of testing.
RELEASE: Release builds include some new features, and are tested for a longer time then EDGE builds.
STABLE: Stable builds are EDGE/RELEASE builds that shown no problems after they we in production use.

My server is set to auto-update to Release versions. Today I cannot access my server as root - it doesn't accept my password. Also none of the IP's respond except the main server IP. :(

When trying to login to WHM, I can see (on the login dialogue box) that the server now runs v6.0.0.

Is there any situation that the upgrade could have messed up my server?

Ok, update went fine, apache stoped responding during update, but after update an restart (only httpd service) everything seems work as should. But, in Cluster preferences i see code, why?

#!/usr/bin/perl BEGIN { push(@INC,"/usr/local/cpanel"); push(@INC,"/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot/cgi"); } require 'whmlib.pl'; require 'parseform.pl'; use Cpanel::Accounting; %FORM = parseform(); print "Content-type: text/html\r\n\r\n"; starthtml(); if (!$ACL{'all'} && !$ACL{'clustering'}) { print "Go Away\n"; exit; } opendir(CLUSTER,"/var/cpanel/cluster/$ENV{'REMOTE_USER'}/config"); @SERVERS=readdir(CLUSTER); closedir(CLUSTER); @SERVERS=grep(!/^\./, @SERVERS); defheader("Cluster Management"); print "Servers in Cluster
\n"; print "
Hostname Ip Address Username Status
\n"; foreach my $server (@SERVERS) { my ($host,$user,$pass) = getclusteruserpass($server); my($whm) = Cpanel::Accounting->new; $whm->{host} = $server; $whm->{user} = $user; $whm->{accesshash} = $pass; $whm->{usessl} = 1; my $version = $whm->version(); my $status = 1; if ($whm->{error} ne "") { $status = 2; } print " $host $server $user "; if ($status == 1) { print "${version} "; } else { print "$whm->{error} "; } print "
"; } print "
Add a new server to the cluster

"; print "
Server Ip Address:
\n";

Ooops, i am gonna have to warn you all, because if you have a lot of accounts on server wich you are upgrading, you gonna have problems with space on /var partition!!!!
Cpanel/Whm 6.0 makes huge /var/cpanel/bandwidth directory, my is 310 MB!

My solution..

cd /var/cpanel
cp -r bandwidth /home/bandwidth
rm -rf bandwidth
ln -s /home/bandwidth bandwidth

That's from all the rrdtool items that are now included for bw viewing. Personally, I would have voted to add that one as an on/off in the tweak settings options, too.

List of latest visitors is ok for me, i ment, it is working, but i think i has started to track from 0. So let's say it is ok!

I also noticed new "feature"....Cpanel (default theme) is not showing number of parked domains used, not even in Account Setings -> Parked domains, i do not know what is situation with Addon domains..

I whm-s parked domains list everything looks fine!

A lot, with more on the way.

BTW, moving /bandwidth/ out of /var harms nothing, as mentioned. We moved it out on a couple of servers to deal with a couple of huge client dbs. Works fine.

Can someone tell me this...my cpanel is set to manual upgrade stable tree only. Now I updated last night and ended up with the cpanel 6 release version instead of the stable version. Anyone know why?

There's other issues but as they aren't crashing my server yet I won't go into them here

That's because you have your Setup that way.. either YOU set it up to release only or the person who installed cpanel for you..

"Change Update Preferences" option in WHM will do the trick.

Using 6.0 E79 Bluelagoon, I noticed that Parked/Add-on Domains show OK - but, each Parked Domain now requires 3 - Domain name itself plus one for FTP and one for Mail. So depending upon what is included in Hosting packages, a re-adjustment (providing more Parked Domains) maybe necessary.

Sub-domains & Add-on's appear to be working as usual/normal.
