    Hello,

    i have "Operating System Package Updates" enabled in WHM, but i want to check for updates very frequently. Where can i change frequency (in WHM or in which file in Linux Centos 6 filesystem)?

    By the way, i see these files:
    /etc/yum.conf
    /etc/yum.conf.rpmnew

    .conf.rpmnew one does not have any excludes, but .conf has these:
    exclude=bind-chroot courier* dovecot* exim* filesystem httpd* mod_ssl* mydns* mysql* nsd* p0f php* proftpd* pure-ftpd* spamassassin* squirrelmail*

    Thank you

    Hi,

    upcp runs "yum update" (which is what "Operating System Package Updates" refers to) once every 24 hours. If you want to run "yum update" more frequently you should install the yum-cron package, and configure its settings.
