    Is it recommended to run yum updates on cpanel servers for other software/kernel updates or do you just let upcp update the control panel and related software and let the rest go?

    I am just curious what the best practices are?

    Hello :)

    Yes, it's recommended that you update your system packages with YUM. You can complete this via:

    Code:
    yum update
    This will ensure you are able to update your kernel and other system software not associated with cPanel.

    Thank you.
