    Hi!

    My 2 servers on Centos 4.3 with cPanel have same issue. I've included screenshot from kernel panic:[​IMG]
    Have any one have any idea what's wrong with this cPanel? Both servers are smp (opterons and xeons).

    I need to know what comes after the line: kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception
    Did you upgrade and then downgrade your kernel? Did you re-compile kernel from source? what Ethernet card do you use on eth0? Did you modify any system conf files? Kernel panic is not easy to troubleshoot by email or through a forum. If you are not very comfortable with Linux system, I suggest you hire a sys admin to sort this out.

    After the line: kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception server is stopped and not responding.
    Both servers have standard kernels, but we tryied to use recompiled from source, same kernel panic. We didn't yet tryied to use some old kernel. Both servers are complitly different machines, one is on opterons, and second is on xeons, so I don't think it's hardware issue. Same configuration is running on dozens of servers, and no problems there. Only if cPanel is installed on centos 4.3 it seems to panic.

    No, this is not a hardware issue. Whenever there is a Kernel Panic error most probably there is something worng in the grub file and occurs while upgrading/downgrading kernel. I suggest you to hire a SysAdmin to get your issue solved.

    On fresh CentOS 4.3 install I'm installing cpanel. Next step - I'm restoring from backup 50accs. Guess what? kernel panic. Fresh CentOS, fresh cPanel. Standard kernel. Any ideas? Reproduced on different archs. If anyone is using CentOS4.3, please try fe. change quota of popular package and test if it will panic.

    We have it on TWO different servers with SMP 2.6.9-42.0.3 kernel (RHEL4).

    Server hangs on "Restoring quota". One of the servers is P4 Dual core and another is high-end Dual Woodcrest...

    It is kernel bug. Update it to the latest. Perhaps to development version.

    We've had it on several servers now, the last one was a few minutes ago on kernel:
    2.6.9-42.ELsmp. It always happens after editing a package.
