Upgrading from version 56 to version 78

Hi @wgc_panelc,

Welcome to the cPanel Forums!

If you run an update that includes multiple major version upgrades of cPanel & WHM (e.g. 56 to 78), the cPanel & WHM update process (upcp) will automatically upgrade your server to each intermediate version. The update process performs compatibility checks for each intermediate version prior to the upgrade to that version. You can look over our Upgrade Requirements document to check for potential compatibility issues prior to starting the update.

When you're ready to start the update, browse to WHM >> Update Preferences to specify your server's new update settings and release tier. Then, browse to WHM >> Upgrade to Latest Version and click on the "Click To Upgrade" button.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
