    Hello,

    I have version of cPanel&WHM v68.0.36. In my right corner on the top WHM site I see "Version “72.0.4” is available. Update Now" But I would like to upgrade cPanel on STABLE Version 70.0.51. When I go to WHM-Home-Server Configuration-Update Preferences I see

    How to choose exactly version 70.0.51 to upgrade?


    Best regards,

    Click the radio button adjacent to the word STABLE, and then scroll to the bottom of the page and click on SAVE

    The next time your server runs upcp, or you trigger an update manually, you will upgrade to whatever version is allocated to the Stable channel at the time.

    Hello,

    Ok, thank you very much for your instruction.
    Ok, I choose version STABLE, then Save. I would like to update manually. How to start upgrade?

    This is situation:

    I would like to start update manually, no via upcp. What I should choose?

    WHM >> cPanel >> Upgrade to Latest Version > Click to Upgrade

    If that does not work because you have everything set to manual, use

    WHM >> Software >> System Update


    You should consider switching your server to allow automatic updates for cPanel and Operating System as well as for SpamAssassin - it is the safest way of ensuring your server is kept up-to-date with the latest security and stability fixs, not to mention the latest features for WHM and for your clients cPanel

    Hello,

    Thank you for your answers.
    I have read on link Upgrade Blockers - Version 70 Documentation - cPanel Documentation . Must be on my server with cPanel&WHM version 68.0.36 installed LiteSpeed?
    Because I have no directory /usr/local/lsws/.

    About automatic update of cPanel I have a question:
    If we allow automatic updates for cPanel and Operating System, ok my server will be kept up-to-date with the latest security and stability fixs. But what about version of cpanel? I would like to version of cPanel&WHM be allways on stable version, not any release version.
    I have read Update Preferences - Version 70 Documentation - cPanel Documentation and I do not understand completely this
    "Automatic upgrades to new major versions
    To reduce support ticket influx, automatic upgrades to subsequent major versions of cPanel & WHM do not always occur immediately. In certain scenarios, the system applies a zero-to-four-business-day delay before your automatic upgrade executes."

    Where is delay defined? Any logs?

    Best regards,
    Elizabeta Krešo

    Hello @Elizabeta,

    The staggered release delay is not defined in a configuration file on your system. Instead, it's configured on our update servers. You can bypass the delay by forcing the update of cPanel using the following command:

    Code:
    /scripts/upcp --force
    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Thank you Michael for your answer. Ok, delay is defined on your update servers.
    I´ll put my server to allow automatic updates for cPanel and Operating System. I would like to update cPanel&WHM just on stable version. Is it enough to set up cpupdate.conf ?


    [root@cpanel log]# more /etc/cpupdate.conf
    CPANEL=stable
    RPMUP=daily
    SARULESUP=daily
    STAGING_DIR=/usr/local/cpanel
    UPDATES=daily

    Best regards,
    Elizabeta Krešo

    Yes, the output you provided shows that automatic cPanel updates are enabled for the STABLE release tier.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    I choosed on WHM Home-cPanel-Upgrade to Latest Version and the upgrade process is not yet finished, only 95%.

    upload_2018-7-3_14-13-59.png

    When I log in to new session WHM I can see

    upload_2018-7-3_14-15-11.png

    Before, I had version cPanel 68.0.36.

    On server from command line:

    [root@cptest log]# /usr/local/cpanel/cpanel -V
    70.0 (build 51)

    Is upgrade process finished ok? Why is waiting on 95%?

    Best regards,
    Elizabeta

    Hello @Elizabeta

    It is possible the update process was finishing up the maintenance portion. Is it still showing 95%? If so and you're able to access the server via SSH could you go to:
    Code:
    /var/cpanel/updatelogs/
    and look at the most recent update log to see if there are any errors noted?

    Thanks!

    Hi @Elizabeta


    That looks like it finished successfully at 1:57 pm yesterday does it show it's still in progress?

    Thanks!
