Hi,

I contacted with CloudLinux support and they told me:

-All her software are updated with "yum update": CloudLinux, Imunify360, Kernelcare, etc.
-Only need reboot server when update the Kernel, not when update other CloudLinux things (but with Kernelcare i can wait time because patch are applied in RAM).

But WHM/cPanel print constantly message: "You must reboot the server to apply updates". I need know:

-WHM/cPanel updates automatically by default?.
-What frequency you recommend me reboot the server for apply changes?, ¿each 15 days, each month...?

Thank you very much.

cPanel only suggests you reboot when something you've installed on the server requires a reboot to be installed, almost always this is the kernel. You can find out exactly what this is by running the following on your server:
Code:
/bin/needs-restarting
