I'm trying to run EasyApache4 to update our PHP/MySQL installation and I keep receiving an error: A fatal error or timeout occurred while processing this directive.

The full error is as follows:

Code:
(XID dwy5wk) The system failed to parse the JSON stream data “#!/usr/bin/cpanel-perl

use strictures;

use CGI::Carp "fatalsToBrowser", "warningsToBrowser";

use CGI        ();
use Socket     ();
use JSON::Syck ();

use Verify::Util ();

my $header;
my $content;
my $content_data;
my @hargs        = (
    -cache_control               => "no-cache",
    -pragma                      => "no-cache",
    -access_control_allow_origin => '*'
);

my $cgi = CGI->new();

if ( Verify::Util::assert_maint_mode() ) {
    push( @hargs, ( '-status' => '502 Temporarily Unavailable' ) );
    $content_data = { msg => 'Maintenance in progress' };
}
else {
    my $target = $cgi->param('ip') || $ENV{REMOTE_ADDR};

    Verify::Util::assert_access_limit( nolog => 1 );

    die "Invalid address '$target'.\n"
      unless my $ip = Verify::Util::parse_host( host => $target );

    $content_data = {

        current => undef,
        history => []
    };

    my %h;

I have run 'yum update' and I have also reinstalled all the EasyApache packages. No change. I've also forced a cPanel reinstall with no effect.

Any suggestions on how to correct this error?
