This feature allows you to update your cPanel & WHM software to the most recent build available on your server’s Release Tier. For example, if you selected the CURRENT tier in WHM’s Update Preferences interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences), this feature will upgrade your server to the latest CURRENT build.
WHM displays the server’s cPanel & WHM version in the top right corner of the interface. You can alternately run the
/usr/local/cpanel/cpanel -Vcommand to view version information.
To see the latest available cPanel & WHM version in your chosen release tier, visit our httpupdate page.
If the upgrade process encounters blockers, it will stop and send a warning message. For more information, read our Upgrade Blockers documentation.
If automatic updates are disabled on your server, click Enable automatic updates to reenable them.
