Hello. Firstly, here are the specs of the system that we are running:

cPanel Build 10.9.0-RELEASE 76
MySQL version 4.0.27-standard
PHP version 4.4.1
Apache version 1.3.34 (Unix)
Kernel version 2.6.9-22.EL
The problem has presented itself when this update was done. Prior to this update, we were running the STABLE version of cPanel with no problems.

The story is, our hosting company had a problem with one of it,s peer networks Not sure what) and once the connection was re-established we received a mail saying that they had updated cPanel to the above version and restarted MySQL. The problem is that whenever PHP tries to communicate with the MySQL server to create or read databse info, the PHP halts but dosen't throw up any errors. It just shows white background in browser and halts. Can anyone point me in the right direction to troubleshoot this problem. Hosting company are offering no help at all and this has now escalated from our customers point of view. Thanks for your time.

Peter.

if they upgraded mysql, a recompilation of the apache webserver would need to happen in order for it to work.

php 4.4.4 is fairly good.

thank you for reply. is there a way of telling from either WHM or cPanel wether the hosting company upgraded MySQL. In the root directory, there is a directory MySQL-install which is dated yesterday. Also, can apache be recompiled throught WHM. many thanks.

In SSH, you would do /scripts/easyapache. In WHM you can do the exact same thing with Apache Update (under the Software heading). Be sure to select the PHP Module option, else PHP will not be recompiled. Also select the Use System MySQL to force the PHP compilation to be done with your current (recently updated) MySQL libraries.

While you are at it, maybe also unselect the Skip Apache Build if up to date option to ensure that Apache is also rebuilt. It will add only a few more minutes to the process.

Ploppy, you are in a tough spot right now. I hope this helps ;)
