    Greetings,

    I've been using freebsd for quite some time, but we recently starting using whm/cpanel with freebsd.

    I'd like to poll the freebsd admins out there and see what procedures you use when it's time to buildworld and installworld. installworld likes to update binaries, some of which whm/cpanel has put in place.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks
    Brad

    I would suggest to flag the files you do not have to be changed.

    chflags schg the_file

    We've not had a problem updating a same version. I.e. updating 5.5-p1 to p2 ... or whatever the latest release is.

    We've also done a few from 5.3 to 5.5. Never done a cPanel server from 4.8 to 5.x. We've updated 6.1 without any problems.
