    How can I use yum CpanelBilly?

    Your explicit help on upgrading kernel using yum will be greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks!

    usually
    Code:
    yum update kernel*
    will work. However if you dont know what you are doing you should contact your server administrator. cPanel does not keep kernel's updated because it can change so much from server to server. Please note that I am also just explaining how to do this, I am telling you that if you dont understand explicitly the issues you can have you need to contact someone who does.

    Many thanks! Yes I have upgraded many kernels in the past, but I didn't know the syntax for the yum command.

    In RHEL 3/4 I still use up2date --configure and modify to allow kernel upgrades and then do up2date -uv, update the kernel, check /etc/grub.conf and select the latest kernel as default and reboot, that usually does the trick.
