Hi there,

Firstly, let me just say, I am not technical at all, so basic info would be appreciated, as I am new to learning this stuff.

I know you would probably say, I am out of my depth, but I have moved into my own VPS solutions, as shared hosting is not an option anymore due to out growing it.

OK, so now the problem
I have a VPS provided by OVH which is a unmanaged server.

We have Cpanel, WHM running on Cent OS 6.5 ( according to the dashboard )
This was a preinstalled packaged which we selected, which gave us a cpanel registration which we pay monthly for.

I have gone through the basic steps, and have WHM working, and a Cpanel setup for our end use ( me )
What the issue is, our current hosting, which is also Cpanel, works just how we want it too, which is basically allow us to run and manage our wordpress installs.

this is all we require, but will also need some database stuff setup in the near future, but that is another issue, so wont go into that here.

I know this is not a wordpress issue, as ive tested fresh installs over other areas, local install, on our test server on current hosting etc, and all works fine, its just on our new vps the issue happens

As you can see, the modules all seem to be missing, which I am assuming is because im missing some features somewhere in the cpanel install, but after spending literally 10-15 hours of documentation and searching, I can not find a solution as to why this is happening.
I'm clearly missing some kind of module, or scripts of some sort, but I have no idea what, or where to begin looking.
I'm guessing its something to do with java, or jquery or something of that nature, but again, its just a guess based on what the modules are made up from.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, or knows what I need to fix/add/install etc I would really appreciated it.

Thanks in advance.
Max

Hello :)

Could you post the specific error messages you are receiving on your websites instead of the actual URL?

Thank you.

There are no error messages, the best way to show what the issue is ( with not being technical ) was to show the differences between the working site also on cpanel on our shared hosting, with the cpanel install on my vps which is breaking the site.

Hello :)

I recommend reviewing the requirements provided by your WordPress application and it's plugins (the install guides for these applications should have a requirements section), and ensuring those modules are installed via EasyApache:

"WHM Home » Software » EasyApache (Apache Update)"

Thank you.

Thanks for the fast response Michael,

Looking at the gantry framework that this wordpress install is based upon, it lists the following requirements

PHP 5.2.17+ (5.3+ recommended)
MySQL 3.23 (5+ recommended)
Apache 1.3 (2.2+ recommended)
mod_mysql
mod_xml
mod_zlib

Is that all handled within the area you said to look into do you know ?

Again, thanks in advance.

Michael,

Having looked at where you have pointed me, I see where I can select and enable this stuff.
The only thing I cant see anywhere is mod_xml listed.

There is XSL and XMLRPC, would either of those be the mod_xml that you are refering too ?

Thanks.

XML should be installed as a PHP module by default. You can verify this with the following command:

Code:
php -m|grep xml
Thank you.

Since you're new on the forum, it looks like I'm unable to PM you. At any rate, it would be helpful to 'see' the problem you are having, but the links have been removed [wisely].

I'd suggest that you check any error_log files in your public_html , public_html/wp-admin and any others that might exist beneath your public_html folder. Those error_log files would go a long way in giving an idea what is going wrong.
