    I have update config set for manual on all of the settings, however each night the server does a cron /scripts/upcp. Why does it continue to do this. I have had problems previously on updates I didn't want messing up the server.

    Thanks!

    Go on, have a guess
    Well, upcp will run, but so long as you have all 3 options set to manual it ought not do too much. As an alternative, you could comment out the root crontab upcp job, though it would probably better to address the cause of the actual problem with cPanel.

    Thanks

    It doesn't do a lot usually some small updates. I have at times found things to be messed up by the "small update". You would think however that it wouldn't run at all if everything is set to manual. It sounds like a cpanel bug. Maybe the update preference buttons should say "mostly manual"

    What about if you choose 'Never Update'?
    Is this working or it makes updates as well

    Thanks

    fwiw

    I too have had this issue

    running the command crontab -e as root and commenting out (or deleting) the /scripts/upcp entry in cron did the job for me. I have nutsmail installed and it kept deleting my symlink to the nutsmail directory and pointing it back to the previous squirrel mail directory.

    Go figure :rolleyes:

    Anyway give that a try,

    later
