Hi,

As somewhat of an amateur to the world of CentOS, I dont have the great experience required to solve the issue i have.

I have upgraded my server from a general Ultimate Hosting plan with go daddy to a Dedicated server and i have had to install cPanel myself. I am faced with the following issue after going through the installation and following the correct steps.

httpd: Syntax error on line 30 of /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load modules/mod_bwlimited.so into server: /usr/local/apache/modules/mod_bwlimited.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

And when i try to even start, stop and restart httpd server:

Code:
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel]# systemctl start httpd
Job for httpd.service failed. See 'systemctl status httpd.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel]# systemctl stop httpd
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel]# systemctl stop apache
Failed to issue method call: Unit apache.service not loaded.
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel]# systemctl start httpd
Job for httpd.service failed. See 'systemctl status httpd.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
[email protected][/usr/local/cpanel]# systemctl enable httpd
Failed to issue method call: File exists
I have tried to done some research on google but due to the lack of knowledge i have behind me it is somewhat difficult trying to research some error you do not fully understand.

I would be greatly appreciated if someone could assist me further on this problem, The stress and pulling my hair out as now gone beyond the capable stage!

My wise decision of changing to a dedicated server has proven not to wise after all as my site is not down with high traffic from google adwords still in the pipeline!

Thanks, Dan.

Also here is the systemctl status httpd.service log:

Code:
