    According to the whm/cpanel documentation an update setting of release will download and install the latest release or stable version. But when trying this out it actually does not.
    It only downloads the latest release version.
    The same is true when you set it to edge, it will only install the latest edge version but not the latest release or stable version.
    This is actually very bad for the people who rely on the documentation and hope to automatically get the latest version of the level they chose or above!
    Cpanel team - can you please fix this??

    As it should -- you can't have more than one version running at one time.


    Again, this is the proper behavior. I don't know which docs you are referring to but below are the update instructions from the WHM manual:

    Changing update preferences
    You can select which updates you would like to receive from DarkORB automatically, if any. There are three package types available:

    CPanel Updates - Updates to CPanel.

    DarkOrb Package Updates - Updates to DarkOrb packages, such as exim, proftpd, and any RPMs (Red Hat Package Manager) DarkOrb build.

    Security Package Updates - Updates to security packages.

    Each package update has the following options available:

    Automatic - Package is updated automatically as releases become available.

    Manual Updates Only - Package is updated manually. All updates are available for manual download from the cpanel.net site.

    Never Update - Disables the automatic update function.

    CPanel and WebHost Manager package updates contains one of the following build types:

    EDGE - A development release that has undergone the least amount of testing.

    RELEASE - A formal release that has undergone extensive testing.

    STABLE - A formal release that has shown no problems during use by customers.

    To change update preferences:

    Click on the Change Update Preferences link in the Server Setup menu.

    Click on the required radio buttons for the CPanel, DarkORB, and Security packages.

    Click on the Save button.

    Curious Two,
    Who said anything about running two versions at the same time??
    When I choose as my update preference "release version" and the latest release is for example built 52 but there is a stable built 53 then I expect that 53 is downloaded since the grade or quality of a stable built is better than the release I chose! Otherwise someone who chooses edge builts will never end up with a release or stable version at all!

    Then you should change your update preference to Stable and not Release.

    And they should never end up with a release or stable version. If you select Edge, you will only receive Edge, period.

    You really misunderstand how this works. You pick one build version and that is the only build version that will ever be downloaded to your server. If you pick Release you will only get Release, regardless of the latest Stable build that is available. If you choose Edge, you will only get Edge, regardless of what Stable or Release versions are available.

    The problem comes from when a build is upgraded, it automatically gets a new build number.

    For example, I run edge build which is build 85, but the stable is 87. Functionally, there is no difference between 85 and 87 except that one is edge and another is stable.

    I have the same problem.

    I have it set on 'Stable' and when I did the upgrade, it did the 'Relase'
