How can I upgrade cPanel in Ultimate Linux Hosting?

Hi all! I have Ultimate Linux Hosting with cPanel. I bought this a few years ago and it came with cPanel 78. The current version of cPanel is 88. How can I upgrade to a more recent version of cPanel? Thanks for any help you can offer me!

Short Answer: this is something GoDaddy has to do from their side.

 

Longer Answer: the version of cPanel is controlled at the server level (above each cPanel account) - there is a limit of what version cPanel can goto on CentOS 6 which I am assuming is what the server is running hence the reason you are still on 78.x

Well, that's pretty clear, if somewhat disappointing. I spent rather a long time in GoDaddy's chat window, never getting an answer this straight. Much appreciated.

 

In the very next version (80), cPanel added a toggle to "Force HTTPS redirect." What I've done is put a couple of WordPress blogs on my Linux server, supporting two add-on domains. I bought SSLs for them and they do permit visitors to use https. But they don't auto-redirect if someone uses http (which leads to scary warnings). I added the below to the .htaccess file in the directories where WordPress is installed, but it had no effect. Any other suggestions for me? (And thanks again for the clear and speedy reply.)

# BEGIN GD-SSL
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^(.+)$
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} ^coolexample\.com$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} ^www\.coolexample\.com$
RewriteRule .* https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
Header add Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=300"
</IfModule>
# END GD-SSL
