    Hello guys, let me star saying that EA4 is a big big upgrade so thanks to all cPanel team, really happy about that.

    My question is, i am actually using V58, EA4 and everything updated, so.....when is really a reboot necessary?

    For example, did i needed to reboot when migrating EA3 to EA4?.

    It is only necessary for kernel?

    You don't need to reboot just because you updated to EA4, ( your not running windoze OS :) )
    Generally, a reboot is only needed when updating the kernel

    For Kernal Update reboot might be required, ksplice allow kernal upgrade without server reboot . So its not necessary for you to do reboot unless much needed.

    Hello,

    A reboot is generally only required when updating your kernel, as the other posters mentioned. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks!
