    Anyone know where I can find information about UPCP? Man upcp and upcp --help don't seem to throw anything up.

    Any pointers would be gratefully received.

    Search would be your best bet. Would show you tried to find specific answers to questions you might have. You also might try reading the documentation on WHM/Cpanel.

    Thanks Kris. Maybe I should have added that I searched the forums but found nothing in the posts about upcp to tell me what exactly it does and what the output in the mail it sends me each days means, that there is nothing in the cPanel documentation index under upcp, and that the only reference I can find in the WHM documentation index is under "Updating..." but it only tells me how to run the script but little or nothing about what it does and how to interpret the results. Which is why I came on here as an ignorant newbie and asked my very first question. Quite possibly some kind soul may just give me a pointer on where to find the info so that I can look it up myself.

    Allhours,

    upcp is not a linux command, ergo, man upcp would produce no output.

    upcp IS a script, created by cPanel that updates cpanel, based upon the update options you have setup in your whm.

    Even if you are not an "expert" at reading shell scripts, you can ssh to your box,

    cd /scripts

    and then
    cat upcp |less

    and you can scroll trough the script and more clearly see what it does:)
