    hi , one of my customers got a vps from leaseweb , the template has cpanel installed in it.
    but cpanel is for 2011 ! WHM 11.30.8 (build 0 with this error :
    The last attempt to update cPanel & WHM was blocked. Click here for details.
    whm mysql upgrade , has only mysql from version 4 till 5.1 , no 5.5 option is available.
    then update preferences for exim is on Inherit. , i have tried release and stable channels.
    but everytime , the /scripts/upcp or update via whm hangs on this error .

    Code:
    rpm_is_working              ##################################################
    [20141007.203050] E Blocker found: Upgrades past 11.30 are blocked because your exim is older than 4.70 and eximup is disabled.
    [20141007.203050] W An attempt to up/downgrade to 11.44.1.18 was blocked. Please review blockers
    i tried to redownload latest cpanel installer to reinstall a new version but it couldn't work anymore as cpanel was already installed.

    i have updated centos with yum update and yum upgrade and it is on centos 6.5 now.

    Code:
    # cat /etc/redhat-release
    CentOS release 6.5 (Final)
    i think i must delete this vps and install a new centos and cpanel myself.
    any suggestions ?

    Hello :)

    Ideally, you should reinstall the OS and then install cPanel normally. However, you could also check to see if "/etc/eximupdisable" exists and then remove that file to allow the update to proceed.

    Thank you.

    that "CPANEL=11.38 in the file /etc/cpupdate.conf" did the trick , it is upgraded to "WHM 11.38.2 (build 23)" which has mysql 5.5 option . then after upgrading mysql via whm , i can upgrade cpanel to latest 11.44 .
