    I have this problem with my new server since last week, every other day the server hangs after /scripts/upcp in CRON. Only ping does still work and only a power reboot brings the server back online.

    I have CentOS 3.4 installed with kernel 2.4.21-27.0.1
    Latest stable release of cpanel: WHM 10.0.0 cPanel 10.0.0-R7
    It's a servelinux server L4 with two IDE hard drives in RAID 1

    FYI: I upgraded my perl version just after the fresh installation to:
    This is perl, v5.8.4 built for i686-linux
    perl-5.8.0-88.9 (rpm version)


    So now every 2 days, I have to reboot my server at night around 4am, just after /scripts/upcp ?

    What is going on because I am not the single user who has this problem ?
    And I cannot see what's on the screen when the server crashes, because the server is 2 hours driving from my home.

    What can I do ?

    1. Make sure that the cpbackup upcp and daily (04:00) cron jobs are spaced well apart

    2. Disable smart disk checking:

    touch /var/cpanel/disablesmartcheck

    Might help.

    I would suggest shifting from auto transmission to floorshift gears :)
    upcp auto has always been a nightmare for me.

    These are my update configs in WHM:

    cPanel/WHM Updates: Manual Updates Only (STABLE tree)
    cPanel Package Updates: Automatic
    Security Package Updates: Automatic

    Should I change this or not ?


    In my CRON list I have:
    58 3 * * * /scripts/upcp
    0 1 * * * /scripts/cpbackup

    So, my backup starts at 1am and upcp at 3h58am.
    BUT my backup takes a long time and ends always around 6am, so backup is still busy when upcp is called. Is that a problem or not ?

    That could be the source of your problems, then. Especially with upcp running at nearly 04:00.

    For starters I'd suggest that you move the /scripts/upcp job to 23:00. That way, it is finished and done before the backups or the 04:00 daily job runs. See how that goes.
