whats weird for me is they moved the login page, right after you log in to CPanel i sometimes get "this document has moved" but i tried to clear my cache and to no avail. Than i popped my hard drive and incidentally had to reinstall everything -- after which i dont get the redirect scripting anymore, but some of my customers do...it has left me a bit

Are the themes automatically updated when you upgrade to CPanel 6? I'm currently using the Vertex theme (which I customized a bit). Will it break anything?

Won't 'break' but will overwrite, otherwise, how could you have Themes with the new features? Customized Themes are a drawback with Major releases as one has to adapt their own code to accomodate the new changes.

Well I upgraded to CPanel 6, and I must say I love the new CronTab creation page .

I had no problems what-so-ever with the upgrade, and am now using cPanel Xskin v1.6.

Was a good upgrade me thinks .

Thanks for the information atjeu
