    What could be causing this?
    "Fatal! Write Failure: /etc/valiases/mydomain.org. Ignore any messages of success this can only result in failure!"

    Sorry if it isn't specific...but I have received this on another client and can't figure out why.

    dir /etc/valiases
    Code:
    # dir /etc/valiases
    blog.massivesoft.---   irc.massivesoft.---       talkn.---
    dadopeman.---          mbb.sanmassive.---        test.massivesoft.---
    -.massivesoft.---  -.massivesoft.---  -.massivesoft.---
    
    The domain missing seems to be 'massivesoft.tld' (which is what this is referring to).

    Thanks

    EDIT: ps: I already tried chmod 4755 /etc/valiases and /etc/valiases/*

    In your tweak settings, you have the this box unchecked:

    "Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that are not registered"

    I had the same problem today with a customer. It was barking about two subdomains (that got created when adding add-on domains). The subdomains were properly resolving in DNS.

    I checked /etc/valiases/ and these subdomains were simply not there!

    To fix the problem, I just copied a working generic alias file to match the names of the files that cPanel was complaining about, giving them the same ownership and rights.

    Problem solved.

    I believe that somehow cPanel got confused when the customer was adding and deleting some addon and/or parked domains.
