    Just curious since running cpanel updates are set to manual I see this in crontab anyway

    5 4 * * * /scripts/upcp

    Would it be ok to remove it?

    hi

    why would you want to remove it ?

    Just leave it there, if you have cpanel set to manual updates it shouldnt do anything.
    I suggest you leave cpanel set to auto update SECURITY stuff.

    cheers

    Go on, have a guess
    You shouldn't stop upcp from running. For one thing, IIRC, it keeps validating your cPanel license. If you have everything set to manual, do make sure that you frequently check things like application versions that cPanel uses and OS application updates and perl modules. These all should be checked by you manually daily otherwise you are putting server stability and security at risk.

    Ive had better luck doing it this way. Even the system/security updates are set to manual. When these things were automatic so many things went wrong when something major came thru. It was easier to see the latest gossip on the forums and how it reacts to others and letting the BS wind down before we went thru with somethign major, just a system I have never has failed before.... yet :cough::
