    Here is the subroutine in the wwwacct file giving you that message:

    sub find_httpconf {
    my(@LOC,$loc);
    @LOC = ("/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf",
    "/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf");
    foreach $loc (@LOC) {
    if (-e $loc) { return $loc; }
    }
    die "Unable to locate httpd.conf"; < ---- this is line 1319
    return "";
    }

    What it's saying is that it can't find the httpd.conf file in either of the 2 locations it's checking.

    I suggest telnetting in and doing a locate.
    locate httpd.conf
    See what it tells you.

    You better contact your server provider. You don't appear to have an httpd.conf file. Without it, you can't have websites.

    You could try running
    cp /etc/http.old/conf/httpd.conf /etc/http/conf/httpd.conf
    to copy the one marked old to use as the real one. It may work, but I would contact the provider.

    I would just copy then. It sounds like you may have somehow deleted the file.

    You mean you ran
    cp /etc/http.old/conf/httpd.conf /etc/http/conf/httpd.conf
    and it said that?

    I put a starter conf file on my site. It's my conf file but just the usual starter stuff with the actual account material removed. Just download it from http://www.premierwebsitesolutions.com/httpd.conf.txt then remove the txt extension and put it in your etc/http/conf directory.

    Creating accounts should work after that.

    Just rename it, or right-click on the link and just save as httpd.conf.

    I thought cpanel was still not compatible with redhat 9.

    That could cause a problem.

    Does anyone know more about the problems this mismatch could cause?

    I had that same error on my BSD box... I think that problem was due to the fact that I didnt do it on a clean box
    apache and a few other thigns had already been installed...

    Please forgive the typos.. its too late for me to go back over it.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    append to previous statement

    I may be wrong, but I think that error is due to not having a clean installation.. i.e. having other control panels installed first.. etc.. I have run into this problem with a BDS installation and a redhat installation where webmin was installed after I told them to do clean... I set up a box at home with a clean redhat install and it worked fine
    I hope this is helpful
