This feature allows you to define how your server handles updates and upgrades. You can specify your preferences for cPanel & WHM, your operating system’s RPMs, and Apache SpamAssassin™ rules.

For more information, read our documentation on cPanel & WHM Versions and the Release Process.

A note about Development Releases: Odd-numbered builds are development builds. Do not install them in production environments. Typically, we release these builds to the EDGE tier. These builds receive no real-world testing and are subject to change. Documentation may not exist for the features in a development build. We will address security concerns found in development releases in the next production build, not a Targeted Security Release.

Staging Directory
The system requires a staging directory to temporarily store updates before applying them. You must select a directory with enough disk space for your installation. See http://go.cpanel.net/blockers for more information.

Enter a directory name or choose a partition from the table below.

The default staging directory is /usr/local/cpanel. In any other location, the system will stage the updates in the “.cpanel__server_previewwhm_com__upcp_staging” subdirectory.
