    Visiting this article a while back I'm sure it used to recommend excluding certain packages from the system updater, has this now changed? I have excluded sendmail, bind-chroot and caching-nameserver in my yum.conf.

    Hello!
    I have checked the previous revisions of this articles. There were no recommendations regarding specific packages.

    Just to make sure, i have upgrade to Plesk onyx 17.8. Now Plesk is asking me to update system files via Plesk. Is this ok? or is safe to do so via Plesk web? If it is safe, would you recommend it to be automatically installed?

     

    thanks.

    Hello!

    It is considered to be safe to install such updates automatically using Plesk. Plesk uses same commands as if it is done manually in CLI.

    Please, bear in mind that upgrade of some packages like Apache may cause short websites accessibility interruption.
