    Updating Centos - WHM/Cpanel - YUM

    I figured I would ask this here since a lot of VPS systems use Centos. I know the UPCP script from WHM/Cpanel is like an all update type script. Do you still need to use YUM to update local packages as well too or does the UPCP script take care of all that?

    It appears to only update WHM and cPanel, you'll still need to do system updates via Yum.

    Yes, you still needs to update it especially if you have some custom software configuration.

    The cPanel upcp process performs a few different types of updates, one being your System Software (if you have it configured to do so). It is essentially the same as running "yum update", though not necessarily everything is updated (new kernels are not installed, for instance) so you will still need to perform a "yum update" when those types of updates are available.

    Thanks. I did set it up so the system would perform both functions daily.

    yum update will most certainly be the most reliable way to update/upgrading your system.
