The /etc/cpupdate.conf file determines the release tier for your installation of cPanel & WHM. When you preconfigure this file, cPanel & WHM will install the major version that corresponds to the tier that you selected. The chosen release tier also controls when your server performs the automatic upgrades to new major versions of cPanel & WHM.

  1. As the root user, use a text editor to create the /etc/cpupdate.conf file.

  2. In the /etc/cpupdate.conf file, use the CPANEL parameter to set your desired release tier. For example, to configure your server to use the STABLE tier, add the following line to the /etc/cpupdate.conf file:

  3. Save and close the file.
