    I had this too when I upped all my servers. Had to put them back down to RELEASE to get into WHM on about 75% of them. Ah, the joys of bleeding-edge. If you need to run EDGE, log a ticket with cPanel/create a bugzilla entry.

    I have this problem too... however downgrading to release or current or stable did not fix the problem.

    Same thing. Going in under :2086 and resetting does nothing... Logging a ticket...

    please let me know if your issue gets resolved and how they did it.

    this is getting to be PURE BS!!!
    i got clients up my ass because cpanel cant leave workin scripts alone or code it correctly and test before they release..

    im reallllllllllllllllllly ready to go to another controlpanel system..

    Reply was that they lost connection and could not get back in. Nice, since I've been connected all night with no problems... Thoroughly dissatisfied with that answer, I rolled the server back as Chirpy suggested and it seems to have fixed the SSL issue. Off to test the rest. GL

    if you need stability then running EDGE isnt advisable

    Indeed. EDGE is EDGE and you accept the risks if you decide to use it.

    I just happened to upgrade some of my servers almost immediately after they released a new build; I noticed a bit too late they fubared the update. It seemed to cause a problem with some SSL libraries (libssl).

    Running bleeding edge software is so much fun (sarcastic :p); hooray for EDGE (perhaps it's best left to our personal servers). ;)

    I usually lean towards the CURRENT builds as for myself.

    usually I have little to no problems with EDGE but lately they are trying to get everything ready for apache2 and clustering and lots of bugs getting through to EDGE

    This latest update is a disaster which is unusual for cpanel. I figure they will get it sorted out in a few days and then I will go back to edge

    Agreed, been running edge on a few servers with nearly no worries for close to a year now. Became a little spoiled... :)

    unfortunately no updates have been made to anything other than edge since may and if you want to upgrade to the latest stable PHP5 and MySQL5 you have no choice...

    we did this to most of our servers without any issues, however on a brand new server is borked everything sadly :(

    Luckily Chirpy pointed me in the right direction :)

    I got hit with this one on a few boxes. True EDGE is EDGE ..it's not unstable ..it's just you never know what you are going to get when you update it.

    I would run current, it seems to generally be the most stable release.

    We used Edge on most of our servers, yet no way of knowing what's going to happen after an update. The cPanel Release and Stable editions are, to a large extent, reliable.

    on the stunnel issue there is going to be a fix soon ..building now and I talked to Nick a few hours over the past day and I suggested a "roll back" solution for those of us that want to roll back cpanel builds to the prior one that was installed or possibly choose from the last 3 or so installs. The roll back with use archived cpanel install files on your server so it will NOT rely on a re-download from the cpanel servers. This will come in handy especially if for whatever reason a update fails to complete and you need to "roll back", OR your custom settings or modified files "accidently" were overwritten by an update, with this feature you can "roll back" or any other reason you can think of. In so many of our cases that run EDGE,. this will allow us to un-"wreck" what we just did to our boxes by upcp'ing and no way to get back to what we had 10 minutes before. Nick and the guys at cPanel are the best. Nick has always gone out of his way for me ...so many things I have asked for ..I suggest or ask for it ,... he and I talk and think it through out loud for a few minutes and the nbext thing I know he is dropping what he is doing to make it happen. I will keep you guys updated on this. I think it will benifit us in those desperate situations especially when we get stuck with a bum build especially. Basically if you know you has a decent version running in the last 2-3 installs prior to a broken install you will be able to "roll back" and it will be fast .. and should work even if cpanel update servers are down or you can't reach them. I am excited about this. :)

    Out of interest Dave, how did you find this information. For years I've looked at the changelog but it seems to be pretty much dead now adays.
