    So if I even try to pull the perl version as a regular user it seg faults and core dumps on a mostly default install. NOTHING has been done to perl. Besides activating CSF firewall. The server is just CentOS 5.8 x64 with a default cPanel install.

    root@someserver [/etc]# perl --version
    This is perl, v5.8.8 built for x86_64-linux

    wired@someserver [~]# perl --version
    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    Any ideas on what might be wrong here? Or is this just another thing intended that has me about a hair away from moving away from cPanel and going to a competitor or doing completely away with a control panel all together.

    "WHM Home » Security Center » Shell Fork Bomb Protection"

    This option can be disabled, or the limits can be edited manually. The following directory contains the shell fork bomb protection templates:

    Thank you.
