    I received a page stating that httpd stopped on one of our servers. The apache error pointed to files not able to be loaded, such as the mod_bwlimited.so,& mod_auth_passthrough.so, mod_log_bytes.so

    I went to the /usr/local/apache/libexec directory and these files were not present. I simply sent these files over from a different server and httpd started like a champ.

    My concern is, how could these files dissapear? Has anyone seen anything like this?

    This is what happened.

    httpd was working just great for weeks, then one day, out of the blue these files were missing.

    I did not upgrade cpanel. In fact, I do not have cpanel upgrade automatically because of that big security hole push earlier this year.

    Then I received two messages from my pager stating that httpd was down. I logged on the server, and copied the httpd.conf file to httpd.conf-bak. Then I restored from our 8:00 AM httpd.conf backup file and tried to restart httpd. It failed. I noticed an error stating that it could not load mod_bwlimited.so and httpd failed.

    So I went to another one of our servers and copied the missing files over, and restarted httpd. Everything worked like a champ.

    Just to be on the safe side, I did upgrade cpanel shortly after. This is the strangest thing! There is over 300 gigs of storage on home1 and over 400 gigs of storage on home2
    The usr, var, tmp, and other mounts look fine too (which are DAS).

    I wonder if anyone else has ever had this happen? That's what these posts are for.
