hi,
I'm going to add 'yum update' to cron daily. Can this 'global system upgrade' break cPanel software or it's dependences? I want to avoid situation when later, after this automatic update, my cPanel will stop working because of yum upgrade one of cPanel key componets. I'am using CentOS 4.4.
Anyone has long time experience with this global updater?

Go on, have a guess
Shouldn't be a problem, but if you have everything set to automatic in WHM then there's no need as it will run yum update as part of the nighly upcp run anyway.

Ok, so I should run '/scripts/checkyum' before each 'yum update', right?
Currently '/scripts/checkyum' returns only: 'checkyum version 20.4', is it ok? :)

Btw. Where can I find documentation of all the scripts located under /scripts directory? Lots of them are very useful, but I couldn't find official papers about them.
