Hi

Ever since the WHM update to v74.0.6, the daily cron emails from all of my servers have a different subject than they used to have.

Before the update the email subject was:
Cron <[email protected]> /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp --cron

Now the email subject is:
Cron <[email protected]> (/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/fix-cpanel-perl; /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/upcp --cron)

Does this mean that I need to fix perl or something else or is this just a change in subject for the emails?

Thanks
Audrey

Hi @audrey

This is a change that was implemented to resolve an issue with cPanel RPM's. There isn't anything you need to do. The description of the script is as follows:

Code:
# This script was written to provide a means to recover from a catostropic loss
# of cpanel-perl RPMs so that you cannot run check_cpanel_rpms and/or upcp to get
# all your lost cPanel files back. It is automatically invoked if need-be if
# check_cpanel_rpms cannot run.
The output is to return nothing if there is no issue:
Code:
    return 0 if cpanel_perl_is_stable();
If that's running during backups and you're getting no output in regard to it - or if you run the script and get no output you should be fine
Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/fix-cpanel-perl
We do have a feature request open to only get notified of UPCP if there was an issue (to be able to disable the successful upcp emails) if this is something you'd like to see please vote on the feature request here Move upcp successful update emails to Contact Manager > Notifications

Thanks!
