    How can i remove the cron job for "certwatch"?

    is that (/usr/bin/test -e /etc/cpanel-dovecot-solrdisable || /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/scripts/cpanel_dovecot_solr_maintenance)

    correct?

    Hello,

    No, that cron job is for the Solr service offered with Dovecot. I believe the "certwatch" cron job you are referring to stems from the crypto-utils package in CentOS. It's not something that cPanel installs or configures, so you could manually remove that cron job (check the /etc/cron.d/ directory).

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Yes, you can delete that file if you don't want that cron job to run.

    Thank you.
