Package conflict errors with ea-nginx on CloudLinux
Generally, in Cloudlinux servers with ea-nginx, yum or cPanel updates tend to fail with the error:
# yum update Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, universal-hooks Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * cpanel-addons-production-feed: 126.96.36.199 * cpanel-plugins: 188.8.131.52 * epel: pub Resolving Dependencies –> Running transaction check —> Package ea-nginx.x86_64 3:1.19.7-3.el7.cloudlinux will be inst Error: ea-modsec30 conflicts with 2:ea-apache24-mod_security2-2.9.3-4.el7.cloudlinux.x86_64 Error: ea-apache24-mod_security2 conflicts with 1:ea-modsec30-3.0.4-6.el7.cloudlinux.x86_64 You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem.
In addition, the installation of ea-nginx on a server with ModSecurity2 packages fails with the same error.
On Cloudlinux servers since we already have packages for ModSecurity2, trying to install ea-nginx or run a yum update/cPanel update fails.
Because, as a part of ea-nginx dependencies, some of the ModSecurity3 packages will also attempt to install.
This causes a conflict between the packages belonging to ModSecuirty2 and Modsecurity3, which in turn causes yum and UPCP to fail.
To confirm that ea-modsec30* packages are being pulled because they are among the dependencies of ea-nginx, we run the following command:
# repoquery -R —resolve —recursive ea-nginx | grep -Ei sec ea-modsec30 ea-modsec30-connector-nginx
CloudLinux has come up with a patch to this issue that is currently in beta testing:
To fix systems that experience this error currently, we update EA packages to the beta branch:
# yum update ea-* –enablerepo=cl-ea4-testing
To install ea-nginx on affected systems using the beta repository, we install it:
# yum install ea-nginx –enablerepo=cl-ea4-testing
