    With those on, you're at the mercy of whatever gets put into the updates. Sometimes that can do damage, sometimes it means you get fixes faster. It's really a gamble. I try to leave everything but security updates off and manually upgrade the control panels when I feel safe doing so. I watch what the latest builds release on other people's servers and then wait a bit after that for things to get patched up before running in and grabbing a fairly stable (in my point of view) build.

    I have only security update ON .

    Some week ago my server crashed after an automatic update .
    Sometime latest updates could be not stable on your server :p .

    I think that cpanel automatic update could be dangerous .
