Warning - Yum and yum.cron

    FWIW we just had our server go crazy and couldn't figure it out. We were using Plesk 6.0 and then one morning we came in and

    - the server had been upgraded to 7.5.4
    - our unlimited domain licensing messed up - couldn't login
    - webmail directory deleted so no one could login using webmail
    - spamassassin settings overwritten

    After tearing our hair out as to how this happened it was traced to the yum.cron file had done this that had been installed when we installed yum to get Spamassassin going a few months ago. We had no idea a cron file for automatic yum updates had been installed. I don't know how this happened so badly but we were really messed up.

    Our last remaining Plesk 6 server also has had yum (and the cron file) on it for some time. It has never auto-upgraded Plesk from 6 to 7.5.4

    Had you made any recent changes to the /etc/yum.conf file?

    In early December I was wrestling with yum and spamassassin trying to get the spamassassin package installed. I remember a yum install didn't work the first time possibly due to some old/broken packages that happened when trying to restore the server from a hard drive failure. Also think I had to update the atomic link. I deleted spamassassin and qmail-scanner and then reinstalled and it seemed to work.

    Here's my yum.conf

    # cat /etc/yum.conf
    #exclude=kernel* http* sendmail* mysql* qmail* name* bind* php*
    exclude=kernel*, http*, sendmail*, mysql*, qmail*, name*, bind*, php*,perl*
