Update Preferences in WHM

The WHM offers a feature where we can configure the server jobs according to the owner’s preferences. This can be done from the WHM interface. You can update/upgrade the WHM to different release tiers, set the update frequency, configure the staging directory where the system will store the temporary files while updating, etc and many more from the update preferences interface.

We are going to see how can we do this in this documentation. Please follow the below steps to update preferences in WHM. You can refer the screenshots attached for further reference.

After logging into the WHM, please go to Home » Server Configurations » Update Preferences. This is where you can configure the cPanel update options.

Update Interval

Next option will allow you to set how often the cPanel should be updated. You can see available options listed there. I am listing those here for reader’s convenience.

1) Automatic

2) Manual Updates Only

3) Never Update

Automatic: You can select this option if you want the WHM to update automatically. This will be done at midnight, daily.

Manual: If this option is selected, you will need to update the WHM manually. You can update the cPanel installation from WHM Home » cPanel » Upgrade to Latest Version.

From the command line, you could upgrade the cPanel installation using the below script.

# /scripts/upcp

Never: If the never option is selected, cPanel/WHM will not be updating.

 

Select Staging Directory

You can select the staging directory from the same window. You could refer the below screenshot for clarification in this.
