Migrated sites Apache Handlers stop working?

I'm migrating sites from a cPanel box running:
cPanel 11.24.5-S38506 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
CENTOS 5.3 i686 standard on serv1

To a box running:
cPanel 11.24.4-C32486 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
REDHAT Enterprise 5.2 i686 on standard

No includes will work on the migrated sites.. Apache handlers show in the domain control panel, yet they don't work. Even putting them into an .htaccess file does not work..

I'm guessing, this is something to do with moving from a CENTOS box to a REDHAT box... Any ideas where to look in config files to see what needs to be fixed?

Thanks in advance!

You need to make sure that PHP/Apache setup on both sides is same.

Are you referring to PHP includes or Apache Server-Side Includes?

Please ensure the system is upgraded to the latest CURRENT build; the specified version of CURRENT is significantly out-of-date.

I would consider running a one-time forced update such as using the following command via root SSH access; afterward, automatic updates should be enabled via WHM Update Config to ensure the server receives the latest fixes and enhancements.
Code:
# /scripts/upcp --force

Yea, what I've found is, the individual domain.ext.conf files are not being written on the migrated sites.. Unsure if I'm going to have to do them manually or if there is a way to let WHM do it, so it doesn't break later..

I'm wondering if I create the site on the destination server first, then migrate, if that would solve it.. .off to experiment...

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

TIA

Apache ssi..

So far, I can only get it to work in the migrated sites by adding

Code:
Options +Includes

AddHandler server-parsed .shtml
to an .htaccess file within the migrated domains..

Otherwise, it's a no go... So far, I'm about a complete day into what should have been a no-brainer... Not happy camper...

Did the "upgrade" as suggested above, on both servers, all that managed to do was pork sql access on the "old" box when I migrated same site over again... (after terminating it on new box, then doing a re-migration) I have zero idea of why in heck the old box would have ALL db access messed up from a simple migration AWAY from it.. no redirect left, nada..

I ask again, is this a product of the CENTOS REDHAD difference between these two boxes???

Please use the following command to check if a specific file exists that is used for certain customizations of the Apache configuration:
Code:
# stat /var/cpanel/conf/apache/local
If it exists, please use the following to check for additional details:
Code:
# grep -Hin includes /var/cpanel/conf/apache/local
To reconfigure the file, please use the following menu path in WHM:
WHM: Main >> Service Configuration >> Apache Configuration >> Global Configuration
Documentation: Global Configuration

This is not caused by differences between CentOS and Red Hat.
