    If I manually edit /etc/cpupdate.conf do I need to run any script to make cPanel aware of the changes? Or is this file simply read by a daily cron job when cPanel needs to decide what (if any) upgrade actions should be taken?

    Thanks for the advice,
    James

    If there is a Cron job to run that file, then it will look for that file.

    You can also do an update manually, which will also use that file:

    Code:
    /scripts/upcp --force

    There is normally an entry in the root crontab that will automatically execute the cPanel update (upcp) script and if an update is needed it will enact the necessary changes.

    The following command may be used to verify the existence of the root crontab entry via root SSH access:
    Code:
    # crontab -l -u root | grep upcp
    To manually execute the cPanel update (upcp) script, the following command may be entered via root SSH access:
    Code:
    # /scripts/upcp
    To perform a forced cPanel update (upcp) process (e.g., re-install), the same command may be used but appended with the optional force CLI switch:
    Code:
    # /scripts/upcp --force
