Upgrade WHM / cPanel Linux server to EDGE Virtuozzo Optimized release

Q. How do I upgrade my CentOS Linux 5.0 dedicated server to WHM / cPanel edge release?

A. You can upgrade to EDGE release from WHM manager. Please 
note that Edge is the bleeding edge tree. While it has the newest features; It has undergone the
least amount of testing (if any). You generally shouldn't run this build unless you need a bug fix
or feature in it. Once an equivalent CURRENT or RELEASE build has been released, you should switch away from this.

Configure EDGE upgrade

a] Just login to WHM b] Look for Server Configuration c] Click on Update Config d] Set cPanel/WHM Updates option to Manual Updates Only (bleeding EDGE tree) Upgrade WHM / cPanel Linux server to EDGE release e] Click on Save.  

To start upgrade procedure

Look for cPanel Click on Upgrade to Latest Version Click on Click Upgrade button

Login as the root via ssh. Edit /etc/cpupdate.conf file: # vi /etc/cpupdate.conf Find line CPANEL=stable Replace with: CPANEL=manual-edge Save and close the file. Now update to edge: # /scripts/upcp -- force
