    Ohh dear god, I had this problem for 2 days in a row.

    Somehow, one of my clients started adding Addon domains, which created subdomains that the server kept saying didnt exist.

    As ussual, I checked /etc/localdomains /etc/userdomains...... The list goes on.

    But, in the end, I had to run an strace on /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf Just to see where it was failing, because the subdomain was in all the right places.

    This guys sites were down for 3 days, couldnt find anything in cpanel forums, or google, or anything else:

    I kept getting the subdomain does not exist.

    After running the strace:

    strace -fFo output.txt /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf

    Then I grepped output.txt, for the output, and finally saw what was wrong.

    The file /var/cpanel/userdata/cpuser/ didnt exist.

    Well Great, so I touched it, it still failed, but this time, with no ServerName error.

    So I created this template:

    cp_bw_all_limit.conf: 0
    cp_jkmount.conf: 0
    format: "\"%{%s}t %I .\\n%{%s}t %O .\""
    target: /usr/local/apache/domlogs/--Domain---bytes_log
    format: combined
    target: /usr/local/apache/domlogs/--Domain--
    documentroot: /home/--cpuser--/public_html/--DOC--
    group: --cpuser--
    group: --cpuser--
    ip: --ip--
    phpopenbasedirprotect: 1
    port: 80
    path: /home/--cpuser--/public_html/--DOC--/cgi-bin/
    url: /cgi-bin/
    serveradmin: webmaster@--Domain--
    serveralias: www.--Domain--
    servername: --Domain--
    usecanonicalname: 'Off'
    user: --cpuser--
    userdirprotect: ''

    placed it in /var/cpanel/userdata/cpuser/

    named it like temp.txt

    I have a habit of making extensions, to used to windows.

    Anyway, I ran a loop:
    for i in `cat /etc/localdomains|grep`; do cp temp.txt $i; done
    Then I ran the replacement loops:
    for i in `ls|grep`; do t=`/scripts/whoowns $i`;replace '--Domain--' "$i" -- $i; replace '--cpuser--' $t -- $i; doc=`echo $i|cut -d'.' -f1; replace '--DOC--' $doc -- $i; done

    Now, one more replace will need to be run:

    replace '--ip--' '' --$i

    not, but the ip of the domain.

    I am posting this to tell you all, who might have the same issue, This is how I fixed it, after 2 days of research, digging through the code, yeah, I went through the code of cpanel's modules. In the end, I am hoping, if there is an easier way, someone will let me know. I'll feel like an idiot, but you know what, I would REALLY like to feel like an idiot and see a /scripts/rebuilduserdata or something like that.
    or a /scripts/completelyremovesubdomain or something.

    I have every intention of coding a bash script to verify Subdomains are in all the right places, a perl script to rebuild/remove subdomain/addon domain entirely.
