Automatic updatе

Log in to the control panel as root and navigate to the System configuration module to enable the automatic update of your control panel.

«System configuration»

There are three types of upgrade to the latest version:

  • Do not update - the upgrade process won't start automatically, and the software won't be updated.
  • Update ISPsystem products - automatically update ISPsystem software products. The system will update only the packages installed from the ISPsystem repository. The packages from third-party repositories won't be updated.
  • Update all the system packages - automatically update all packages of the operating system.

"Update ISPsystem products" is selected by default. If you enable automatic updates, a daily cron job is started and, depending on the upgrade type, updates either ISPsystem packages or all packages of the operating system. By default the cron job is started at 3:10 am (server time). You can change the start time in the Cron job edit form.

Manual update

In order to update VMmanager manually you can use standard tools of the OS package manager.

Please note: every version has a separate repository which name matches the name of the version. Also, there are beta5 and stable5 repositories which contain all the versions of a software product.

The repository connected in the system, defines a version the control panel can be updated to.

execute the following commands to update VMmanager:


/usr/local/mgr5/sbin/ coremanager


 /usr/local/mgr5/sbin/ coremanager
