After upgrade, Entropy banner don't work. On test page with HTM Tags and on body <!--#exec cmd="/usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/entropybanner.cgi user"-->, and saved how .shtml, the page show a blank page.

Any ideas?

The link should read:

cgi-bin/entropybanner.cgi

*Note that there is no need to specify the 'user' as a parameter.

If you are not using the XSkin supplied by Cpanel the text in your skin may be out of date. Check with the skin author.

Just do the following:

cd /home/username/public_html/cgi-bin

cp /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/entropybanner.cgi entropybanner.cgi

Then, use <!--#exec cmd="cgi-bin/entropybanner.cgi"--> in your .shtml pages that you want the banner to display.

The problem is after the upgrade, CPanel no longer copies entropybanner.cgi to the user's cgi-bin. And because of suexec, calling entropybanner.cgi from /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/ won't work. The same solution should apply to randhtml.cgi if any of you happens to have a problem displaying your random codes.
