    I got my first own cpanel server configured. All is working fine. However - I trying to find out what software other the custom software I installed is actually being updated by cpanel.

    I assume Apache is taken care of by cpanel. How about PHP and MySQL? What other software do I not really need to keep an eye on?

    I know - I still need to keep an eye on all the security related stuff, but I'd like to avoid updating a software to the latest version and then breaking cpanel.

    Thanks.

    an update of cpanel updates all rpms; and the c-panel.

    when you recompile apache you can change the version of php that is supported. the latest being 5.0.0.0 [ by /scripts/easyapache]

    mysql can be upgraded with an rpm.

    security is a big chapter on its own and have to be checked thoroughly.

    let me know of any other updates that you need to know.

    On all sites on my box, in both the cPanel admin and in phpMyAdmin the version of mySQL is stated to be 4.0.20-standard.

    however, a phpinfo() shows under mySQL --> Client API version 3.23.49

    Why the discrepancy?

    I am running a script which requires MySQL 4+ for InnoDB relationships and am having some issues/errors...

    have you compiled apache with "use system mysql" ?

    if not check that, and you should be set.. as I believe otherwise PHP uses its built in mysql.
