One of my servers has completely screwed thanks to CentOS 5.3!

Every few minutes, this is emailed to me:

/etc/cron.hourly/modsecparse.pl:

Code:
Can't locate DBI.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at /etc/cron.hourly/modsecparse.pl line 11.

BIND is restarting itself every few minutes too! Just tried to run a software update and UPCP crashed!

WTF???

cPanel services not showing.

All CGI scripts failing, including cPanel scripts.

Server fails to reboot via cPanel - have to manually reboot it via the console.

Oh dear! :confused:

Code:
cd /usr/src; \
wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl588installer.tar.gz; \
tar -zxf perl588installer.tar.gz; \
cd perl588installer; \
./install

I fiixed my server with the same problem by using the following procedure (please reference this thread, and several others, for more info: http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=112377). Login via ssh as "root" user, and then follow these steps:

1) Kill any upcp process that may still be running
2) /scripts/fixeverything
3) wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl588installer.tar.gz
4) tar xfvz perl588installer.tar.gz
5) cd perl588installer
6) ./install
7) /usr/local/cpanel/bin/checkperlmodules
8) /scripts/upcp --force
9) /etc/init.d/cpanel restart

Now, everything appears to be working! Hope it works for you too! Good luck!

What does your /etc/yum.conf say? It should already exclude perl etc.

Perl doesn't have to be updated although it depends on what you have installed for rpm dependencies and there are various ways around the issues. Hire a system admin to do the upgrade for you if you do not have the skills to do so yourself.

I'm on RELEASE and it updated last night, seamlessly. So there ya go.

It was so seamless, in fact, that I didn't know it happened till I noticed the change in WHM this morning while I was performing some routine work.

Peace,
Gene

Mine won't update because

Error: Missing Dependency: perl(Convert::ASN1) is needed by package samba
Do I just go into WHM and go to install perl module and type in Convert::ASN1 --> search --> install?

Also I have kernel excluded in yum updates, should I remove that and let it update?

There seem to be a problem with Convert::ASN1 when samba installed. Even if Convert::ASN1 is installed it keeps send this error message. Solution is to remove samba (no needed for hosting) and then run yum update. After that you CentOS will upgrade to 5.3

from Centos 4.7 to Centos 5.3

I am currently running the following:

cPanel 11.24.4-C35075 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9
CENTOS 4.7 i686 standard on server24

Can I update to centos 5.3 with the suggested process mentioned in this thread?

Thanks.

Me too, I was wondering if anyone successfully upgraded the centos kernel 4.7 to 5.3 and how? I have full access to the server and access to it via a live terminal.
