Hello,

How can we disable automatic cpanel updates?

We prefer to update manually.... I don't see the option to disable auto-updates anywhere?

Thanks!

Greetings,

The documentation linked by @LucasRolff would be relevant in your case. The automatic update process reads /etc/cpupdpate.conf to determine whether or not updates should be performed.

If you set your updates to "manual" from this file, your updates would require manual execution to start.

If you have further concerns then please let us know.
