    My cPanel is set to automatically update everything, but SquirrelMail is still in version 1.4.9a but the latest version is 1.4.13. How can I force an update to the latest version, for security reasons?

    Thanks.

    short answer is, you cant, you have to wait for cPanel to get around to it (dont hold your breath - doesnt happen very quickly)

    You can upgrade Squirrelmail to the latest version: 1.4.13, MANUALLY. But, the cPanel will overwrite the new version with their current: v1.4.9a. Just in case you have the time, SSH to the server and run these commands (in that order) to upgrade to v1.4.13:

    1- cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/
    1- download the latest version: 1.4.13
    2- tar xzf squirrelmail-1.4.13.tar.gz
    3- mv squirrelmail squirrelmail-1.4.9a
    4- mv squirrelmail-1.4.13 squirrelmail
    5- cd squirrelmail
    6- mv config config.orig
    7- cp -a cd /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/squirrelmail-1.4.9a/config .

    I know you are trying to be helpful andy, but that is a completely pointless exercise/a complete waste of time, as the second upcp is run, say goodbye to squirrel again.

    The only way this method would work, would be to copy the tree to another folder, and add a hook into /scripts/postupcp to copy the files back again

    Since the manual upgrade will rollback to the 1.4.9a, there's nothing I can do :(

    Any ideas WHY cPanel keeps the old version? I read about important security updates in Squirrel, and the upgrade is recommended by the Squirrel team...

    So is it still in the works? Or should I do the upgrade manually as suggested above?

    Thank you.
