Good morning,
We are not interested in upgrading to KernelCare. Please can you inform us if there is a method by which we can disable or remove the 'Upgrade to KernelCare' warning appearing in the Security Advisor?

Many thanks in advance.

Hello Dave,

Good question! Here's the full quote from the cPanel 64 Release Notes regarding the KernelCare subscription link:

KernelCare subscription link
In cPanel & WHM version 64, we added a banner to WHM's Security Advisor interface (Home >> Security Center >> Security Advisor) that allows the system administrator to purchase a license for KernelCare. KernelCare automatically updates the system's Linux kernel without the need to reboot the server. Hosting providers can use the Manage2 system to configure whether this option sends the purchaser to the provider's custom URL, a specific mailto: link, or the cPanel Store. They can also disable the banner for their licensed servers.

For more information about how to purchase a KernelCare license, read our How to Purchase a KernelCare License documentation. For more information about KernelCare, visit CloudLinux's KernelCare site.
If your cPanel license is purchased through one of our Partners, then you would need to contact your license provider to determine their policy on the banner.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you.
