    Hello,
    since months I can't update cpanel/whm anymore ... neither from whm control panel as I always did in the past, neither from ssh. A manual update doesn't even start and in my email i keep getting this message:

    Code:
    cPanel Update (upcp) is already running. Please wait for the previous upcp to complete, or kill off all upcp processes and try again. You may wish to use '--force' at /scripts/upcp line 45.
    I have complete control on the server, as well as shell access, so can someone please tell me what to do to terminate the offending process?

    Thanks.

    in WHM goto "Show Current CPU Usage " then search for "upcp" in the command field and kill it by clicking on the pid on the left.

    Thanks for your reply,
    I went there, and I have these 2 lines:

    Do I have to stop both?

    You might want to check /var/cpanel/updatelogs

    Find the newest files in there

    That should tell you whats going on .

    When in doubt:

    Hi Nick,
    I went to check that directory and found these logs...

    Code:
    root@vps [/var/cpanel]# cd updatelogs
    root@vps [/var/cpanel/updatelogs]# dir
    ./                     update.1174445942.log  update.1174874342.log
    ../                    update.1174532341.log  update.1174960742.log
    update.1174186741.log  update.1174618743.log  update.1175047145.log
    update.1174273141.log  update.1174705142.log
    update.1174359542.log  update.1174787950.log
    Tried to open one, but they are full of lines, mostly system messages, and I don't understand anything there...

    As you red in my 1st post, the problem is that I can't update Cpanel/Whm anymore, what do you suggest me to do? Stop the 2 processes above by clicking on the left pids, or there's another solution?
    And sorry for being maybe..."hard headed" but I'm just a beginner when it comes to cpanel issues...

    Otherwise, if you think its better, I will open a ticket.

    Hi Nick,
    sorry to disturb again,
    I used the cpanel verify licensing tool and I get:

    Code:
    IP ******* using package VASERVE-INTERNAL-VZZO and is licensed though: VASERVE Ltd. (active on: 2006-10-24 04:50:39, group: VASERVE Ltd.*) and is active.
    So.. should I use the cpanel ticket myself or I have to contact my hosting provider first?

    I killed the update process and ran /scripts/upcp --force

    It ran ok, but All i see in a ps is :
    25665 ? S 0:00 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/cpanel/cpdavd --start

    So it looks like cpanel wont start.

    Cheers
    andy
