    Hi,

    I am wondering if anyone has experienced this. The latest upgrade screwed up my htttpd.conf. The script aliases that pointed to cpanel, cgi-sys, etc. were missing and there were accounts also missing for some reason.

    If you've experienced this before do you know what exactly went wrong during the upgrade process?

    I experienced this once before, less than 1 month ago. We have 75 accounts missing from httpd.conf and listing the sites from WHM also revealed that we were missing 75 sites from the list of websites. Thank god i had a backup. Always always backup your httpd.conf before running any kind of update. I learnt the hard way and i was quite angry about the whole thing.

    Yes, us too...But only when we edited our packages, not a upgrade itself...But we also always backup the httpd.conf files now before hand.

    Yes, we tried it only once and the file was corrupted. We always make a backup now before hand, just incase.

    Thanks, I'm backing up httpd.conf before any cpanel updates or mods. Even a recent backup httpd.conf can be a problem with new domains that were added.
