    Run the following from shell as root and see if it fixes your error:

    /scripts/updatenow
    /scripts/upcp --force

    Have you recently moved to stable from release, current or edge build ? If so, the above may not work, which build did you move from, and which version is it you are on now.

    If the above is true, try the following:
    rm /var/cpanel/version/9.9.9.1
    /scripts/upcp

    Then run the apache build again.

    Ok I updated to Cpanel Release and ran the Apache Update and it upgraded to 4.10. However here is the problem, now I get the following message when logging into Cpanel WHM:

    Security Warning, your resolver configuration contains 127.0.0.1 (localhost). For security reasons, we recommend that you use a non-local dns resolver. Click here to change your configuration.

    Unable to obtain apache version information. Your apache server at xxx.xxx.xxx.100 may be down, or unreachable.

    So I tried restarting apache but it says apache failed. I rebooted the server but apache still wont come online. I contacted my DC and they said that they can fix it for $50 or I could ask on the forums for someone to fix this for me. Could you guys please help? :(

    cPanel Access Level:
    Root Administrator
    run
    service httpd stop
    service httpd start
    from the command line. You should get a list of errors to do with httpd.conf - just fix them and apache will start.

    and remove 127.0.0.1 from /etc/resolv.conf and put your server's main public ip there instead. Leaving it there is a security problem and there have been servers compromised because of it.
