    Does Cpanel/WHM do automatic updates of MySQL, Apache, and PHP within a major version? Or do I have to do those manually?

    If updates are automatic, where is that set? In the WHM Update Preferences? There I see the option to set WHM itself to automatic update, which I have selected.

    If updates are manual, what's the best way to do them?

    Thanks. I read this documentation already but had a question about it. When I go to Home >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences, I don't see a section to drill down to cPanel Package Updates >> mysqld.

    All I see are a Release Tier section with a Daily Updates radio button set, an Operating System Package Updates section with a radio button set of Automatic, Manual Updates only, Never update, and a SpamAssassin Rules Updates section.

    I am running WHM 11.36.0 (build 11).

    I believe that one section was changed recently. What is it exactly that you're looking for?

    For MySQL, type in MySQL to the search tool in WHM top left to find it.

    For Apache and PHP, type in Easy, to find Easy Apache.

    The MySQL section only has an option for doing major version updates. I do see EasyApache. I didn't realize that was the only way to do Apache & PHP updates and that I would need to do them manually.

    I saw in the logs of the recent Cpanel updates something with "mysql" in it, so it looks like within a major version it actually *was* doing an update. Or am I misunderstanding what that was?

    CPanel will automatically update your MySQL to the next minor version. IE: 5.5.x. However, should there be a MySQL 5.6, or a MySQL 6, you will need to upgrade to that version manually. This to prevent CPanel from introducing something that will inadvertantly break your databases.
