Hello;

Some time ago I am using a Vps to manage my hosting accounts together with WHM and Cpanel, well, I would like to update to the latest version of Cpanel but I have some questions before and I hope someone can guide me.

1.- Is there any risk when updating?
2.- Is it necessary to create a full backup?
3.- Can errors occur after updating?
4.- Is there a point of restoration?

I very much appreciate your answers and guidance on this and if you have any other suggestions it would be great to present it.

Greetings to all

Hello,


1.- Is there any risk when updating?
Any change involves a certain level of risk and anyone that would tell you that there is 0 risk to making modifications would not be telling the truth. I can say depending on the version of cPanel your on, most updates are completed fairly easily.

2.- Is it necessary to create a full backup?
It's not necessary to create a full backup but it's always recommended to keep a good working backup

3.- Can errors occur after updating?
Occasionally, there are errors that can occur after updating - as I mentioned previously there is always a risk depending on customizations and configuration. We're always more than happy to assist though and in the event there is an issue you're more than welcome to open a new thread here or if you need immediate assistance, you can always submit a ticket.

4.- Is there a point of restoration?
I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this, but we don't support rolling back versions. You can restore your data but not cPanel/WHM itself.
