    The 12/21/2005 update seems to have broken mysql, gd, perl, and other things on about 1/4 of my servers.



    1. Mysql is running and working, but all mysql database info in users cpanel is gone. Restarted mysql but didn't help.


    2. Tried running upcp --force to fix mysql problem as suggestion in another thread. Problem is upcp isn't working. It hangs while trying to install GD. It hangs on

    root 8757 0.0 0.0 0 0 ? Z 05:31 0:00 [checkgd <defunct>]
    root 8781 0.0 0.1 2384 1220 ? S 05:31 0:00 /usr/bin/expect -- /scripts/expectperlinstaller Tree::MultiNode GD GD::Graph


    Some errors when upcp runs are...

    Method: System Expect
    spawn /scripts/realperlinstaller Tree::MultiNode GD::Graph
    Testing connection speed...(this could take a while)....Done
    Ran out of working CPAN mirrors. Please contact cPanel Support at /scripts/cPanelPerl.pm line 218.
    expect: spawn id exp3 not open
    while executing
    "expect -nobrace {*perlmod--Install done*} {
    exit
    etc.....



    3. All scritps that use GD are not working correctly.


    4. Some perl scripts using perl modules like DBI are not working.

    Go on, have a guess
    Well this is the problem with what you've mentioned:
    To remedy that, first check that your nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf are resolving domains properly, then:

    rm -Rfv /root/.cpan
    /scripts/perlinstaller


    Then try running rpmup:

    /scripts/rpmup

    If it goes through OK:

    /scripts/upcp --force
