    Ok, I have a server that crashes at the same point every single time I try to add a new account. It gets this far:

    Added Entries to httpd.conf


    And then "BAM!" The server goes down. I was ssh'ed into the account when it happens, and I can't find any problems. On other server we did have that dnsadmin spawning problem, but this one doesn't even do that. It is the same version as all servers in the cluster.

    I don't see any processes being started or anything...the server just goes dead...not even a ping.....I have to reboot through my datacenter to get it back up.....so what the heck is going on?

    Here is the entries from the messages log at the exact time it went down:

    PHP:

    Here is the error log:

    I just can't figure this one out...

    Well I did another /scripts/upcp --force (third time) and so far it has let me set up 3 accounts...

    I guess I'll keep an eye on it....

    Go on, have a guess
    A couple of things:

    1. Make sure that laus isn't installed:

    rpm -ev laus

    If that didn't come back with an error, search the forums for the additional steps for removing laus.

    2. If 1. isn't the issue then it could well be a fault memory stick in the server.
