For the past few days, whenever doing things I normally do, I get strange debug type output, like this:

Installing a SSL cert:

This is an error I got this morning, something I get it adding email accounts, changing DNS settings, etc.

Currently it's on:

WHM 11.2.0 cPanel 11.6.0-C14829
CENTOS Enterprise 3.8 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0
I use CURRENT BUILD, and have it set to auto update

Creating a new account, I got the following error:

Cpanel::IxHash: Warning, mangling data key msel which is longer then 64 bytes, using angle_bracket_encode Cpanel::IxHash: at whostmgr/bin/whostmgr.pl line 3138 main::wwwacct called at whostmgr/bin/whostmgr.pl line 404

Main >> Account Functions >> Create a New Account
Create a new Account
Cpanel::IxHash: Warning, mangling data key msel which is longer then 64 bytes, using angle_bracket_encode Cpanel::IxHash: at whostmgr/bin/whostmgr.pl line 3157 main::wwwacct called at whostmgr/bin/whostmgr.pl line 404 Notification => [email protected] via EMAIL [level => 3]
Account Creation
Account Creation Complete!!!


Account Creation Status: ok (Account Creation Ok)
Everything works fine, but I get all these strange messages

In Tweak Settings, disable "Display Errors in cPanel instead of logging them to /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log" By disable, I mean make certain there is not a check in the box. If the box is checked, uncheck it and Save the settings.

That will prevent the errors from appearing in the interface. The "Cpanel::IxHash: Warning, mangling data key msel which is longer then 64 bytes, using angle_bracket_encode Cpanel::IxHash: at whostmgr/bin/whostmgr.pl line 3138 main::wwwacct called at whostmgr/bin/whostmgr.pl line 404" warning messages are safe to ignore, just something that needs cleaned up.

The Cpanel::IxHash warnings are not problems solvable from the end user perspective. They are merely warnings generated by PERL due to using a hash key that is too long.

The cpanel error_log (found at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log) is rotated so you don't have to worry about it consuming all disk space (except in extreme conditions).
