I went to do a yum update today and was expecting the kernel update and maybe a couple other things and was very suprised to see a 100+ things that need updating. I found this odd because normally its only a couple things dealing with the kernel and one or two things not updated by CPanel or Cloudlinux. I checked the repositories to make sure there were none out of the ordinary and there weren't.

I have one server that we run cloudlinux on and the other just normal cpanel on top of centos 6. They both seem to want to update the same files which i find odd because Cpanel has its own files and keeps them updated. Is this cause because the base install of the OS had some extra packages installed at the time of isntallation.

No thats the non cloudlinux one although the cloud linux server had just as many and they were all the same and errored out on the same files. I had talked to CPanel support while back about a similar issue (much less files requiring update) and they said they could just be removed as CPanel had its own packages.

I just find it odd that the OS has this many updates available.

As a test I yum removed webalizer and then checked cpanel and its webalizer is still running. While webalizer is of less importance than say modssl it did show they were separate.

I further removed the mod_ssl and modwsgi on our smaller server and yum update went fine. From my past conversation with CPanel support on this similar subject these are not needed for CPanel to run think as CPanel is still up and running with out them.

Hello :)

Yes, it looks like it was a standard installation of CentOS instead of the recommended minimal installation of CentOS that lead to those package update requests. It's true that Apache is handled through EasyApache so RPMs such as mod_ssl are not handled through YUM.

Thank you.
