Hey everyone,

I've spent two days looking for an answer through the forums, but no matter what solution I've tried that is provided by cPanel staff, I still have this issue. So hopefully there's something small I'm missing.

Everytime I go to rebuild via EasyApache, whether it's through WHM or SSH using /scripts/easyapache, It always halts towards the very end with this error:

-- Begin test 'Basic HTTP Request for static content' --
localhost did not have any working mirrors.  Please check your internet connection or dns server. at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/ line 596.
This is currently how my hosts file is configured:

Code:               62153.server.local 62153 localhost s1 localhost.localdomain localhost
And here is my resolv.conf file:

search box.local
# Generated by NetworkManager
domain box.local
I've tried removing "search box.local" and "domain box.local", but it's always overwritten after running EasyApache.

Now because this is merely a final test that it's having the hiccup on and the websites load perfectly when testing them after the build, would it be safe to assume this is a more trivial problem that could be disregarded, such as removing the file 'AN_EASYAPACHE_BUILD_IS_CURRENTLY_RUNNING' in /usr/local/apache, or should this be considered as something far more serious and rectified immediately?

I've tried getting help from the server provider who installed the OS (CENTOS 6.3 x86_64 standard) to take a look at it, but the most they'll offer is an OS reinstall which is impossible for me as I have my site already on the server which I must avoid interrupting.

Also, I am running cPanel on EDGE v11.32.4.11.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Your /etc/hosts file is incorrect. This is what you have:

Code:               62153.server.local 62153 localhost s1 localhost.localdomain localhost
You cannot have your hostname set with localhost. It should look like this:

Code:               localhost localhost.localdomain s1
