The Delayed Repository


Last modified: April 20, 2022

Overview

The Delayed repository provides a delayed update schedule for packages in EasyApache 4.

This repository aims to reduce the chance of unscheduled package updates. It receives updates one week (7 days) after EasyApache 4’s Production repository. Sometimes a package will contain a bug from the upstream source. When this happens, we release an update with the bug fix. If you use the Delayed repository, you will only receive the most recent update to a package. This repository replaces the Production repository as your primary EasyApache 4 repository.

cPanel & WHM, L.L.C, retains the right to push some packages immediately to the Delayed repository. These packages will usually contain security updates. We may also update other packages at our discretion.
