Has anyone had the problem of httpd.conf entries just disappearing? That is to say, the virtual host entry for a domain on the server, and the sometimes the virtual host entry for subdomain just disappears out of httpd.conf? Anybody seen this happen before, or heard of it before? If so, got any idea how I go about making sure it doesn't happen. As a precaution I wrote a couple of simple shell scripts to backup the httpd.conf file on a daily and weekly basis. However, I would like to know what's causing this or if anyone has any ideas what might be causing this?

Yes, this has happend to me from time to time. I have no idea why. The username and web files for the account and all other files seem to remain, but the info in httpd.conf for the domain disappears. Thus, Cpanel does not list the domain in list accounts.

Usually, I have been able to go to the backup of httpd.conf, copy and paste the pertinent entry and solved the problem.

No explanation though.
