    Hello,

    I get a 'Cron <root@server> /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp --cron' email through every morning, with a very long list of cron tasks. Can this be disabled?

    This cron keeps cPanel up to date on the system. I wouldn't recommend disabling it.

    Hi,

    Disabling the email can be done, but it has to be done in the crontab. Here's a post about it that should help:

    How to stop upcp cron emails?

    tl;dr: Add the following to the end of the cron:
    Code:
    >/dev/null 2>&1
    I hope this helps :D

    Hello,

    I've looked at that screen but I can't see any way to modify the cron - how do I do this?

    Ahh, it's been a while since I've been in that part of WHM.

    The easiest way is to make this change via SSH.

    Code:
    crontab -e
