    Hi,

    What are the implications of downgrading from cPanel 11.23.3-R25133 to cPanel 11.18.6-S24739

    Thanks

    You will lose the 'VPS Optimized' functionality & the improved logging mechanisms I do believe.

    Whilst VPSO was in EDGE stages I had to revert back to RELEASE a few times, and managed to do so without any mal-effects.

    I run a dedicated server so VPS functionality is no concern.

    What other issues can happen?

    You lose the built-in proxy.

    Any particular reason you are downgrading to STABLE?

    Stable versions are relatively bug free.

    In WHM, go to the Server Configuration section and click on "Update Config." In the "cPanel/WHM Updates" portion of the page, simply select "Automatic (STABLE tree)" to be set up for automatic updates, but to the STABLE tree instead of the RELEASE tree.

    Then in the WHM interface go to the cPanel section and click "Upgrade to Latest Version." This will make you use the STABLE build instead.

    Go on, have a guess
    IMX, downgrading between versions is a dangerous thing to do as things can break that aren't compatible between versions. Stable is not necessarily the least buggy build either, as it's the oldest and therefore has fewer bug fixes in it.

    At this point in time, CURRENT, RELEASE and STABLE are the same, thus making the change rather pointless.

    I would argue that as they are the same, this would be the perfect time to switch from RELEASE to STABLE if that is what one wanted to do.
