Update Preferences

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.
The system has saved your settings to the local server. Any changes will take effect when the next update runs. To update the local server now, click here.

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 https://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__trycpanel_cpanel_rocks__upcp_staging” subdirectory.
