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.
