My server has been giving me problems ever since I tried to upgrade to using PHP5, because a customer asked for it. When trying to build apache it had given me two syntax errors and then I had no PHP installed on the server at all. I reverted and thought everything was fine.

A few weeks later I added an add-on domain for a customer and this crashed the httpd. After researching this issue I came up with the error being in the httpd.conf file and it was the BytesLog domlogs error that a lot of people have had. So I went in and commented every BytesLog domlogs reference out and restarted httpd. Everything fine again. Next day added a new customer, same thing httpd crashes. Look again at the httpd.conf and it has added BytesLog domlogs again to every virtual host - leaving the ones I had commented out earlier. Fixed it again by commenting out the BytesLog domlogs and restarting httpd.

Now I figure I need to try and repair my apache since I have been reading on this issue so I try the command /scripts/easyapache and it comes up with some major disturbing information:

Testing connection speed...(this could take a while)...Unknown open() mode '<&=' at /scripts/MirrorSearch_pingtest line 30.

So now I cannot try to rebuild apache, upgrade cpanel, or anything, my server is functioning but it is a dead duck.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Also if I have posted in the wrong area, or posted a common issue I apologize. I assure you I have tried looking this up for days.

P.S. I am running on: WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.8.1-C112
RedHat 7.3 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

Go on, have a guess

That would suggest either:

1. DNS lookups are not working on the server

2. You've got required outgoing ports blocked

3. You've rmeoved the port mappings in /etc/services

I have contacted the NOC and they had updated perl and it has somewhat fixed the issue.

I then rebuilt apache by /scripts/easyapache and now I can add customers and remove customers, restart the server, and all appears to keep working.

Thanks
