I have been having some difficulty migrating servers when I got this problem. WHM fails to load and gives the following error message:
Updating Internal cPanel Information.... [an error occurred while processing this directive]. Done
License system update in progress. Please try again later.
I tried to log in via SSH but any attempt to log in results in a disconnect. The server is a dedicated 64-bit CentOS with a cPanel/WHM install about a month old. How can I solve this issue?
