    I keep getting this email from [kernelcheck]:

    &This message is to inform you that the machine is running an older kernel which is known to have problems with quotas and possible root security holes. We recommend that you upgrade your kernel as soon as possible. If your admin does not know how to upgrade your kernel; Most hosts will charge a minimal fee to upgrade your kernel for you. &

    Should I be upgrading my kernel?

    Thanks bdraco. I assume I should request an upgrade to version 2.4.18? Is there anything I need to worry about regarding WHM/CPanel during a kernel upgrade?

    The linux kernel completely stands alone from WHManager/CPanel........................... the only thing you or the guys doing the upgrade need to worry about is getting all of the drivers/hardware support built into the new kernel, so your machine has all of its components (ethernet/both CPUs/complete memory).... when it boots into the new kernel.

    As far as the CPanel product as a whole, a kernel upgrade does NOT have any effect on it.
