Seeing this in my apache2 logs and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this error?
Handler for application/x-httpd-ea-php72 returned invalid result code 70014
Here is what is in my htaccess file near the bottom:
# php -- BEGIN cPanel-generated handler, do not edit
# Set the “ea-php72†package as the default “PHP†programming language.
<IfModule mime_module>
AddHandler application/x-httpd-ea-php72 .php .php7 .phtml
</IfModule>
# php -- END cPanel-generated handler, do not edit
Server details:
Centos 7.9 2009 Standard
cPanel Version 104.0 (build 7)
Apache Version 2.4.54
PHP Version 7.2
MySQL Version 5.7.39
Architecture x86_64
Operating System linux
Perl Version 5.16.3
Kernel Version 3.10.0-1160.49.1.el7.x86_64

If the PHP version is using the suPHP handler, then I would first check if suexec is enabled on the server from EasyApache.

Without knowing what is causing the entry to appear in the log, I don't have any ideas. Are you able to do something that makes the error happen?
I wasn't doing anything other than routinely checking my logs.
It seems to be only affecting a few domains so I'll check those to see if there are conflicts with the scripts running on them.

After further investigating my logs I see a modsecurity block just before the series of instances of the Handler for application/x-httpd-ea-php72 errors so I am assuming it is a normal error due to the malicious nature of the attempted security hack by offending ip address. I also checked each ip address and most of them are from overseas.

Does this assumption sound right to you?
