I have several *old* accounts that just alerted me, but I know they\'re not even close. This really sucks. DING DONG. Is ANY ONE there?

Sbrad, oh vision of popularity ::

When they say disable an apache module- \"mod_bwlimited\" , do you know exactly what that means? I\'m assuming it probably would help if these individuals are suggesting it.... if you want to try that , open the apache config (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf) on the machine in question and comment out all lines that include \"mod_bwlimited\"

And restart apache. Obviously I can\'t verify if that is an actual fix since I haven\'t meddled in this area much, but that is what was suggested.

:P

Yup. EXACTLY. What I want is a fix, an acknowledgement, or something. Now that I have that acknowledgement in your famous form of \"I\'m smarter than you\", I suppose I should be content.

Sbrad- the sarcasm (mine) must be ignored at times. This isn\'t \"my forum\"... I am not a \"hardcore programmer of the darkorb variet\".... I just try to help out with tidbits of insanity whenever I can.

Sorry to offend thee.
Trampoline is open for you anytime.
(Well it is currently taken apart due to sub-frozen temperatures).... but I\'m sure it will be spring in the midwest soon.

No?
Damn it\'s not even January yet.

Ah. K, no probs. The thought of thy tramp shall be in mine heart, for when the new flower blooms, I shall travel a great distance to go boingy-boingy on it.

Hi All,

Did anyone find a fix for this? I have tried the work around disabling mod_bwlimited, however that didnt seem to fix the problem

Any advice appreciated

removing that module isn\'t what I\'d consider a fix, it\'s in there for a reason! :)

WHM needs to be fixed... I did file a bug report; this is a classic example of the great lack of testing before updates are sent out.

Hi,

I never said it was a fix - merely a workaround.
I\'m not on the DarkOrb staff, I was just sharing my insight.

mod_bwlimited is what limits access to the domain when the bandwidth limit has been reached.
It isn\'t what sends out the bandwidth usage emails - Those come from Bandmin, I believe.
Atleast disabling mod_bwlimited will mean service isn\'t interrupted to your clients while waiting for a fix.

Vince.

I think it might be fixed in tonight/this morning\'s update... I created an account right after the layer 2 install and it\'s not gone nutty and reported absurd bandwidth yet, usually it would by now.

Well, I just created a new account and it went haywire after about 5 minutes. I don\'t think the layer 2 update fixed it...

Same problem as everyone here on our servers...... How the hell are we supposed to run a business when the software isn\'t even working right?

Heh, Mat, that\'s exactly my point... this would have been relatively easy to catch in beta as far as I\'m concerned.

Perhaps I was just lucky... the account I created this morning didn\'t puke out insane bandwidth numbers, guess we\'ll see.

[quote:ad42a87e05]Not sure if this has been resolved, but just disable mod_bwlimited as a workaround.

Same problem here thanks for the work around Vince :D

But with removing mod_bwlimited we now have no way of controling overages by our customers... And at this rate, who knows when we are going to get a fix.....

Exactly, I\'m not about to start dismantling parts of the server because cpanel has been screwed up by the developers who don\'t apparently care either.

Turns out it was just a fluke that I had an account that didn\'t go into bandwidth frenzy.

Just created another and it\'s already 2GB in five minutes, this is insane. There doesn\'t seem to be any reason behind it either, just random overages out of the blue.

It is not a fix (Nick, please help u out here!), but if it happens to you, go to:
/var/cpanel/bandwidth/$username and set the bandwidth to 0. It will increment from there on the next update.

Even then, it gets stuck with \'Bandwidth exceeded!\'. At least for me it did. . .

if it does, just go to the limit bandwidth section in whm and click on update for the user name.

I have also found out that having the mod_bwlimited causes a lot of problems for people. After all, who likes getting their sites shut down if they exceed the bandwidth? They just need to pay for more.
