I got the lastest build and try to install the EDGE release of cPAnel it works but when i run this command


/scripts/easyapache

I select number 6 because i just want apache 2.0 and php 4.4.4

after selecting my options and run it i get the following error

make install failed to build conf/, restoring and aborting... at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/EasyApache.pm line 895.

I ran this to check the modules

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkperlmodules

It said no errors. Any ideas

Thanks...

You're a brave soul! We totally fubar-ed our development server trying to upgrade to Apache 2.x

Anyway, you'll need to edit the httpd.conf file and comment out all the modules being loaded, since some of them seem to cause issues with Apache 2.x. Once Apache's been built, you can start to play around with re-entering the modules (although you can expect it to break Apache!).

Stargatesg1, upgrading to Apache 2 is something that is relatively easy if all goes
according to plan but there are about a million ways you can screw it up and you
really need to be experienced enough know how to fix every single instance!

It is not really something that can really be covered sufficiently in forum post ...


TIPS:

Remove all 1.x modules (LoadModule) from httpd.conf prior to upgrading

Avoid compiling Apache with any of the "cache" modules (file / disk / memory)

Leave PHP with minimal options. You can always add more PHP options
later after you have successfully upgraded to Apache 2

Turn on "Verbose Build" so you can see what is going on


If all else fails, you can contact me for help!

I have personally upgraded hundreds of servers to EDGE w/ Apache 2
and it's pretty much a piece of cake for me but then I already know
what I'm doing and exactly how to overcome every pitfall that leaves
most people scratching their heads stuck with a dead server.

thanks for the tips everybody

It's just me. My Linux skills are limited I only know what I know. This whole apache 2.x has been out for a while now and cPanel has just dragged its wagon to produce a good product. I mean look at Plesk its supports everything. To me I think that cPanel needs to do an audit of their programmers because they are taking too long to roll out the new version.

Plesk uses the distro installed version. Which in lots of ways is better.

You are simply nuts ...

I would like to see you in a need to add extra modules oh php for example and trying to recompile that distro release on plesk .. simply sucks

Cpanel at least for me is light years ahead , even if they are still using apache 1.3
