    Hi,

    I keep getting this message via email:

    In WHM, I click on 'Add an A Entry for your Hostname', and to the right it gives me an error warning saying:

    '[an error occurred while processing this directive]'

    Upon clicking on that it says:

    What is going on and how can I fix it?

    What's happened here, for some reason, eth0 has no address. Suddenly, eth0:0 has replaced eth0, and eth0:1 is behaving as normal.

    In 'Basic cPanel/WHM Setup' I changed the main eth to eth0:0 and the problem disappeared.

    But I am still a bit confused to what and why this happened.
