    Hi,

    For some reason this cron keeps running on one of our cpanel boxes. How can I prevent this cron from running?

    Updates should always be ran as moderated because there's a million +1 reasons it might cause problems on the box.

    It is recommended that if you do not want any updates to be triggered to set your updates to "Never" via the Update Config. screen in WHM. This will also prevent third party scripts from updating cPanel/WHM by attempting to run /scripts/upcp.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I turned off the automatic updates as you mentioned, but today I still recieved the upcp email.

    Any ideas?

    Its a cron job, it will always run. But cPanel will not update as per your settings. This is normal.
