Bug Report: [WontFix] “Market providers” errors when cPanel store disabled by license holder

In an effort to prove to myself that I am actually trying to do work this last month, I’m making a note of all the bugs in 3rd party software I find.

cPanel: Error: Package system can not be repaired automatically

If, like myself, you have recently upgraded the cPanel control panel system on your Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 server and received the error message “Error: Package system can not be repaired automatically” when upgrading Apache, then it’s probably caused by a problem with either the RedHat Package Manager (RPM) or YUM. To fix it, first ensure that no RPM or yum updates are running: ps auxwww | grep yum ps auxwww | grep rpm If any are running, find out why and kill -9 them if they are zombie processes. Now you just need to rebuild the RPM database: rm /var/lib/rpm/__db.* -rf rpm –rebuilddb This process may take some time (between 1 and 30 minutes depending on your server speed and the number of packages installed). Once it’s completed, you should be able to upgrade without problems.

cPanel: Simple Script To Backup Over rSync

If you are running a reasonably recent version of cPanel (I think v11 or later), you have the ability to run WHM backups over rsync instead of just FTP. This post, if it isn’t obvious, is intended for people with root access to their cPanel server. So how do you do this? Simple, configure the backups as per normal in WHM to backup your secondary hard drive or a set partition on your main hard drive. Then just add a script via the shell command line as “/scripts/postcpbackup” (open PuTTY, connect to the server, login, “su” to root if necessary if you didn’t login as root, type “nano -w /scripts/postcpbackup”) and past the following script: #!/bin/sh rsync -vrplogDth /backup/cpbackup/* username@backupserver:/backuplocation/ Replacing “/backup/cpbackup/” with the location of your “local backups” if you changed it from the default, “username” with the username of your rSync account, “backupserver” with the hostname/IP address of the backup server and “backuplocation” of the place to store the backups. (It’s CTRL+X to exit nano by the way). You then just need to make it executable by running “chmod a+x /scripts/postcpbackup” and you are done! Hope it helps someone!
