cPanel & WHM Version 92 has been released, and brings a slew of great updates. Take a look at what is included, and then upgrade today!

Operating System / Installs Only Security Package Updates

Hi cPanel staff, cPanel users,


Sys-admin love updates (improve performances, security, new features, ..) but sometimes new versions also bring new problems/bugs. (Like MariaDB 10.1.15 pushed a Friday, big nightmare...)


With the cPanel security Advisor, you recommend to install "yum-security" but you don't use it. I would like to have a configuration option in "Update Preferences" // "Operating System Package Updates" >> Automatic Security Fix Only.


The command to launch is only : # yum -y update --security (Cf: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/10021 ) -> Exclude Kernel, bind_chroot and perl ;-)


Like this, if a new package is released for new features, we don't apply updates automatically.


Regards.

We had a huge problem with this when MariaDB updated with the version 10.1.15. These kind of update need to be highly configurable to avoid these kind of problem.

It's like the yum-cron package:


/etc/yum/yum-cron.conf


  1. [commands]
  2. # What kind of update to use:
  3. # default = yum upgrade
  4. # security = yum --security upgrade
  5. # security-severity:Critical = yum --sec-severity=Critical upgrade
  6. # minimal = yum --bugfix update-minimal
  7. # minimal-security = yum --security update-minimal
  8. # minimal-security-severity:Critical = --sec-severity=Critical update-minimal
  9. update_cmd = default


We need it in the upcp call !
