    After upgrading to the release I notice there are new features that have been there for a while I just never had chance to post about them.

    Now i changed to bleeding edge and another one has appeared so I would like to know what the following are.


    Passthrough Authentication
    Bytes Logger
    Bandwidth Limiter

    and is there anything you reccommend I should install that adds to that list

    For example on my friends server he has...

    mod_jk
    mod_bwprotect

    What are those, and should I install them? and if so how and where

    Cheers

    I would also like to know more about the frontpage passthrough authentication.

    Because when my server auto updated to the release tree tonight, apache failed as it couldn't find the necessary module!!!

    Whatever it's missing...I had to go into emergency mode and install the backup conf file. What is it missing that I should have installed here?

    Same here..

    My server just upgraded and I was beeped at 4am letting me know that my httpd server went down on one of our servers...

    I fixed it by commenting out mod_auth_passthrough from the httpd.conf ... But to automatically add a module that doesn't exist into httpd.conf causing it to crash is a real bad thing.. Thinking twice now about auto-update..

    This generally means your c compiler is broken.

    I am almost sure there are no issues with the c compilers on any of the servers as we routinly compile on them..

    I will attempt to run easyapache and see if that missing module appears.

    This module seems to be brand new..

    Running easyapache to re-compile the apache server, also successfully compiled the passthrough module.. Something failed when the auto-update attempted to do this..

    The auto-update did not fail on the other cpanel servers we have... Only on one of them..

    I guess there is always a chance for autoupdate to fail.. :-/

    This happened to us also. We updated to WHM 7.4.2 cPanel 7.4.2-S82 and httpd would not come up. I did a 'diff' on the new file and a backup cpanel must have created before it added the mod_auth_passthrough and this is what we got:

    [/usr/local/apache/conf]# diff httpd.conf httpd.conf.bak
    238d237
    < LoadModule auth_passthrough_module libexec/mod_auth_passthrough.so
    272d270
    < AddModule mod_auth_passthrough.c

    I commented those two lines out and everthing seemed to work fine when I started httpd up. Now, here's the wierd part, just on a hunch, (1) I stopped httpd, (2) uncommented the lines so mod_auth_passthrough would come back online, and (3) started httpd back up and everything is fine... even with mod_auth_passthrough. Who knows, but the server is running fine now. Any thoughts from anyone out there?

    Passthrough Authentication 1.8 1.6
    It says that I don't have the latest version?

    How do I upgrade to the latest version 1.8?

    You will be upgraded on a later release of whm/cpanel if your using stable, if you want it upgraded now then change to a release version of cpanel. View the changelog when you have questions like that.
