    Is it safe to run the following command on a CPanel server without breaking any aspect of CPanel?

    up2date -u

    I use up2date regularly, and I've never had any problems.

    One of the easiest ways to upgrade the kernel, as well as other things...

    What commands do you regularly use with up2date, and would the "u" (update) option be one of them?

    Well if you want to upgrade your kernel... you'll have to edit the config to NOT skip the kernel

    up2date --configure
    type 24
    and then type C and hit enter
    and then hit enter again

    Type:
    up2date -p
    that will update the packages your server to reflect the packages available to update over at RH.

    Then type
    up2date -u
    and it will install any updates that are available

    But remember you'll have to setup an account over at Red Hat Network -- if you haven't already, type rhn_register, and that will register your server over at RHN.

    And that's it!

    I have been told not to upgrade PERL, apache and PHP upgrades are best done through easyapache. Apart from that cPanel seems to do most of the other stuff, ie zlib was updated through cPanel. See how long it takes them to make an xinetd available...

    Yeah, I don't upgrade perl, php, apache, etc via Up2date. Actually it pretty much skips it anyways.
