    Why does my cpanel server have an old kernel 2.6.18-308.16.1.el5? Cpanel takes care of Centos updates and so. Got 5.10 right now. Tried to update manually, says everything is up-to-date. Everything else like softwares is up-to-date.

    Anything to worry about?

    Hello :)

    The cPanel update process will not update the actual kernel. Instead, you should update that manually via your system package manager (YUM). EX:

    Code:
    yum update
    Note that you will have to reboot your server to ensure the new kernel is utilized.

    Thank you.
