    3 nights ok my virtual hosts were removed from httpd.conf overnight. I tried various changes without success and yesterday restored from an image which resolved the problem. Unfortunately, the problem recurred last night.

    I also get an alert FAILED: dnsadmin followed by a RECOVERED which is presumably connected.

    httpd.conf has following as expected
    Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/includes/post_virtualhost_2.conf"

    My virtual hosts are defined in /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/post_virtualhost_2.conf - this file hasn't been changed for several months.

    post_virtualhost_2.conf contains several VirtualHost definitions
    DocumentRoot /home/xyz2/public_html/abc
    UseCanonicalName Off
    CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ combined
    CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ "%{%s}t %I .\n%{%s}t %O ."
    ## User xyz1 # Needed for Cpanel::ApacheConf
    UserDir enabled xyz1
    <IfModule mod_suphp.c>
    suPHP_UserGroup xyz2 xyz2
    <IfModule !mod_disable_suexec.c>
    <IfModule !mod_ruid2.c>
    SuexecUserGroup xyz1 xyz1
    <IfModule mod_ruid2.c>
    RMode config
    RUidGid xyz1 xyz1
    <IfModule itk.c>
    # For more information on MPM ITK, please read:
    # apache2-mpm-itk
    AssignUserID xyz1 xyz1
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/xyz2/public_html/abc/cgi-bin/
    # To customize this VirtualHost use an include file at the following location
    # Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2_2/xyz1/*.conf"
    xyz1 is a cpanel account (and hence a Linux user)
    xyz2 is a linux user but there isn't a cpanel account for xyz2

    If I run httpd -S, I get the following repeated for each of the VirtualHosts I'm trying to create.
    "[Fri May 06 11:15:16 2016] [warn] VirtualHost overlaps with VirtualHost, the first has precedence, perhaps you need a NameVirtualHost directive"

    I have tried adding NameVirtualHost which has prevented the warning but not helped otherwise

    I have tried using *:80 in place of which hasn't helped.

    A colleague (who has long gone!) wrote the post_virtualhost_2.conf file.

    I do not want to move my DocumentRoot to be under /home/xyz1/ (ie the cpanel path) as it contains a complicated jenkins/git development environment which would introduce further problems

    I'm fairly sure I just need to fix my post_virtualhost_2.conf work with the changes cpanel has made but I'm at a bit of a loss ....

    Thanks for any advice.

    Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look? You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
