Check the path of named ...it should be /usr/sbin/named ....if you find it to be /usr/local/sbin/named then run the following command

Code:
ln -s /usr/local/sbin/named /usr/sbin/named
Try restarting the BIND.

If BIND/named doesn't work, that could be multitude of different things. Is this FreeBSD?

Hello,

Check the functions directory in your /etc/rc.d/init.d/cpanel file
I am also pasting an example of that section from a freebsd server below.

----------------------------------------------
# Source function library.
if [ -f /etc/init.d/functions ]; then
. /etc/init.d/functions
elif [ -f /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions ]; then
. /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions
else

----------------------------------------------
This error shows that you are missing that path. Check your server and set the the proper functions directory in the /etc/rc.d/init.d/cpanel file. It will help you to solve this issue.

Did you try a forced update of the cpanel. It can help.

Also did you check whether there are any file like cpanel4 or something like that.. I had seen some cases like that.


/etc/rc.d/init.d/cpanel4 start

Also did you try

service cpanel restart

May be somebody could help you by sending you FreeBSD version of /etc/init.d/functions ...or copy it from another working free BSD server.

Bumping this old thread in the hopes that this has been resolved? Everything I've read points to Cpanel requiring linux files that just aren't present on FreeBSD. Did we miss some necessary configuration options in the FreeBSD sysinstall?

specifically, my problem is the following:

netstat -a reveals Cpanel is not listening on port 2086 for anything.

All attempts to start or restart the cpanel server are negated by not being able to run /etc/init.d/cpanel restart

it throws this error message:

Could not find functions file, your system may be broken


this is a redhat only file I *think* and does not come with our FreeBSD 5.4 distro.


/upcp seems to have errors on the perl installation, that's the only thing we can see that goes wrong during the make.


Who's got an answer for me.

I have the same problem with you.
Is it a bug on FreeBSD?
Hope someone can help me!

I don't think so. It is not a bug on FreeBSD and/or Linux. I guess you have to have a certain level of expertise to troubleshoot FreeBSd (or any other OS) especially BIND, DNS zones and related files. It is very hard to say what's causing this error without looking into your server. Good luck!
