    Hi

    I use cloudlinux and regularly run the security advisor to see if easyapache or kernel updates are available, I then always update them if they are. I think, CloudLinux itself will get updated when I run the kernal update (yum update) and reboot, but should I also be running yum groupinstall alt-php at some point ? or does this happen when I run easyapache ?

    Thanks
    Daz

    Hello :)

    You should be able to run "yum update" and see a list of all of the Cloud Linux packages available for updates. This is a separate process from EasyApache, which does not use RPMs for updates to Apache/PHP (As of EasyApache 3).

    Thank you.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    I did a yum update which updated the kernel and a couple of other dependencies, then after reboot I did another yum update which then updated 124 alt-php packages, so I'm good to go.

    I'll just routinely do a yum update whenever I see fit.

    Thanks

    Does this mean CloudLinux's packages (alt-php, etc.) won't be updated automatically even if cPanel's automatic daily updates are on?

    You can enable "Operating System Package Updates" via "WHM >> Update Preferences" to ensure your OS packages are updated. This is similar to the "yum update" command.

    Thank you.
