I have a hosting account where I cannot access any of my cpanel stuff. The host (I won't name the company for now) says it is a cpanel problem and that the cpanel folks are working on it. Funny that I haven't read anything about it here. Does anyone know if this is a true statement by this hosting company. I have my suspicions.

Thanks...Cathy

Ok - I have to mention the hosting company - ThirdSphere. It's their automation station and here is the error -
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/ts2/amstation/automationstation.php on line 3

They are claiming that this is affecting MANY Cpanel hosts but I have been unable to find it on any of my other CPanel hosts. Here is there rambling message:

The web server that you are currently hosted on runs a different version of the back end of the control panel than the rest of the servers (a more updated version).

We run this on only one server so that if anything appears not to work, then we can delay updating the other servers. Today Cpanel (the company that makes the back end of the control panel ThirdSphere uses) pushed an update and it did break something (which it does happen but only rarely). The most obvious evidence of this is that some Web20 users cannot log into their control panel and receive the following error message (text in red):

"Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/ts/index.php on line 3"

After investigating the issue thoroughly, we have determined that Cpanel has broken the custom Cpanel tags that we use. While we believe this is affecting other hosting companies and Cpanel will fix it quickly, we have also paid for escalated customer support and are waiting for a call back at this time.

In the meantime, we have turned off some functions that rely on these tags, so that we can restore controlpanel access for web20 customers. It is possible that some things will not work, but just let us know as you find them and we will see if we can provide a work around. You will not be able to log into: AutomationStation or any of your web editors: bleepsoft, Site Studio or Website Workshop.

Thank you.
The ThirdSphere Team.

Thanks for reading this whole thing...Cathy

Their reply

Here is their reply to a request for a ticket number -


From ThirdSphere Support -


Here is one of the email communications we received:
[Bug 5826] cpanel tags no longer work in cpanel.
------- Comment #1 from todd cpanel.net 2007-09-04 09:16 -------
Tickets #209793 & 209962
If I understand these tickets properly, they are experiencing this same
issue.

And, I have talked to 10 other hosting companies owners this morning as
part of a conference IM that I do, and they are all experiencing the
issue on servers that have the latest cpanel update. Specifically we
are only having this issue on one server, because it is the server we
updated. The other servers on the network don't have the issue because we
have not updated them. So any company that runs Cpanel that has not
updated or does not run Fantastico or any other use of custom Cpanel
tags is fine.

End - ThirdSphere Support

Thanks for looking into this...Cathy

hey Todd, our server is running EDGE, we're experiencing the same issue as well. It's been about a week since we've updated, has this been fixed yet?

ah, my issue is going down to a deeper problem

/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php: /usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.14: version `libmysqlclient_14' not found (required by /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php)
I had this issue with the system version of PHP, so I changed the configure line to point at the proper sql location, symlinked all of the old sql libraries to the current sql library (.15), recompiled php, that worked

but apparently the cpanel php needs some help :-\

if you have suggestions, that would be great. in the meantime, I'll see if I can figure out a fix.

thanks...

You can rebuild cpanel's php interpreter using /scripts/makcpphp. I recommend running this as it should rebuild and relink the libraries as needed.

Unfortunately the issue your experiencing isn't part of the issue previously discussed in this thread. I recommend submitting a support ticket so we can look further into this for you.

i got it figured out. from where i'd had problems with MySQL recently, I had created symlinks from old (.14, .6, etc) versions to the current (.15). apparently the php build was picking this up, so by removing the symlinks, it started working properly

i doubt this specific situation would happen to others tho, as it originated out of mysql 3 libraries still being on the server for some reason, which caused more problems than it helped
