    Hi,

    One of our servers comes up with 500 Internal Server Errors on PHP pages since the last Apache update.

    the command "php status" brings up:
    We've tried re-installing via WHM buildapache with and without MCrypt, although it still comes up with this error.

    We've also tried installing libmcrypt manually, although there configure script crashes.

    Any idea's on what we could try?


    Thanks :)

    Try commenting out PHP from your apache config. If Apache restarts then something is wrong with your PHP build. If this is the case, fire up /scripts/easyapache and rebuild your apache/php install.

    Hi,

    We solved it by copying the libmcrypt files across from another server, then restarting Apache.

    :cool:

    I downloaded libmcrypt from sourceforge.net built it and copied appropriate files into /usr/lib and was able to restart apache. This is just wrong though.

    Download from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mcrypt, unzip/untar, then run ./configure then run make. I did a make install, but it put files into /usr/local/lib. The cPanel config expects them to be in /usr/lib, so just copy them there and restart.

    This needs fixing though.

    I did like armad said - copied the files from another server, phuu - it worked.

    BUT the libmcrypt.so.4 is actually a symlink to (I guess) libmcrypt.so.4.4.7.
    But I transfered both of these files as files and not symlinks - is there a difference ?
    It works and I guess the symlink actually is a virtual copy of the file it goes to so..

    How I did it:

    Copied all libmcrypt..... files (4) and one directory (empty) from /usr/lib/
    and tarnsfered them over to the error server into same location.
    Don't fogte to set the permissions right.

    This helped me just this night while I was frantically looking for a solution.

    It's still a problem.
