    Guys,

    I had a lot of customization overwritten earlier this week - also Tomcat is now broken and god only knows what is wrong. We had updates set to "Manual" for everything, and WE STILL GOT UPDATES!!!!!

    This is unacceptable.

    We are running cPanel11.

    Any comments from cPanel reps on this?

    What type of customizations were you performing? Perhaps there's a way that they can be done that will not be overwritten by a /scripts/upcp.

    Additionally, if you are paranoid about updates, why not set updates to Never rather than Manual to prevent any possible mishaps? Simply set back to Manual when you know you're going to update and back again after the updates.

    You can do this via WHM -> Server Configuration -> Update Config

    My understanding was that when set to "MANUAL" updates would only be done when an admin kicked-off an update. Is this incorrect????

    We have now changed it to "NEVER".


    Our updates are to the login pages.

    That is correct, however it is better to be safe than sorry when worrying about overwriting customizations.

    As for the custom login pages, have you considered building your own login page rather than customizing cPanel's login page? Some sample source code is available at:
