Hello :)

You mentioned that Nginx is not installed. Was it installed in the past? Do you notice any content added to the /scripts/after_apache_make_install file?

Thank you.

It appears that moving the compiled rogue bwlimited.so modules out of the apache modules directory and rebuilding the apache configuration allowed it to generated a good apache build that did not include the LoadModule directive, this appears to have resolved the conflict in EasyApache and allowed it to complete. Please let us know if you require any further details or assistance with this request.

I am happy to see the issue is now resolved. Note that for others experiencing this issue, it's a good idea to review "/scripts/after_apache_make_install" as entries within this file from Nginx implementation are the primary cause of the reported error message.

Thank you.
