    When creating subdomains, an error message appears as follows:

    Fatal Error! Unable to open httpd config file /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf!

    The techs at EV1Servers tell me that this is a bug in CPanel.

    They tell me that I have to upgrade to a revised version that does not this problem.

    I have upgraded my CPanel to the most recent version (clicking on the CPanel upgrade area at top of main console) and still, the problem remains.

    Can anyone help in this matter.

    Regards,
    Bryce

    Helloo,

    This happens to be cpanel bug and occurs because the permission of the httpd.conf keeps changing.It can corrected by changing the permission to 644 or 744 and if the issue still persists it is optional to setup a cron in your crontab that coorect s the permission every now and then .

    Go on, have a guess
    That is not a cPanel bug. The permissions on httpd.conf are meant to be 600 for RELEASE and up. You should only have need to change those permissions if you mistakenly went up from STABLE and back down again which you should not do with the current release trees.
