Hello Everyone!

Here's an overview of some of the reported issues specific to cPanel & WHM version 70:

Case Number: CPANEL-20644
Status: In-Progress
Description: Backups can fail on higher latency disks (e.g. NAS, NFS) with an error message like this:

The system received an error from the “SQLite” database “/nas/backup/.meta/dbame.db”: SQLITE_ERROR (no such table: backup_paths) at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Exception/ line 336.
Workaround: Disable the use of metadata files by running the following command as "root":

whmapi1 backup_config_set disable_metadata=yes
Note when metadata creation is disabled , the following actions occur:
  • WHM disables the File and Directory Restoration interface (Home >> WHM >> Backup >> File and Directory Restoration). The interface will display a warning that indicates the setting that disabled it.
  • cPanel hides the File and Directory Restoration interface (Home >> cPanel >> Files >> File and Directory Restoration) from the cPanel Home interface.
Forums Thread: Backup failure - SQLITE_ERROR (no such table: backup_paths)
Case Number: CPANEL-20545
Status: Fix scheduled for cPanel & WHM version 74.
Description: The /etc/mailhelo file is incorrectly populated with a reseller's domain name in cases where account's are assigned a dedicated IP address and owned by a reseller. This happens with the following option is enabled in WHM >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager >> Basic Editor:

Send mail from account's dedicated IP address

Workaround: Temporarily disable the following option in WHM >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager >> Basic Editor:

Send mail from account’s dedicated IP address

Then, if you want to modify which IP address Exim uses for sending emails until a solution is published, you'd need to follow the instructions documented on the following link:

Manually configure Exim's outgoing IP addresses

Case Number: CPANEL-20319
Status: Solved in version 70.0.34
Description: This case is open to address an issue where updating to cPanel & WHM version 70 leads to the creation of duplicate "A" records for proxy subdomains in cases where the "A" record for a proxy subdomain was previously overwritten with a non-default value.

CentOS Bug Report: Bug 1577265 – nospoof, spoof, and spoofalert were not implemented and apparently removed.
Status: This relates to a RHEL/CentOS bug and is not caused by a change in cPanel & WHM.

This can lead to the following issues:

1. Prevents /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms from running.
2. Mailing lists no longer appear in cPanel.
3. It's not possible to list Mailing List members using the command line.
4. Web Host Manager reports "UNKNOWN" for the operating system version.
