Many VPS or Dedicated server hosting companies now provide cPanel & WHM as their default server administration tool.
cPanel works well for most routine administration, however users come across bugs once in a while.
One such issue is websites not loading even after an account is created. (more…)
Billing automation tools like “WHMCS” help Web Hosts to create and edit accounts in a jiffy.
But things like high server load, database connection errors etc. can cause WHMCS to fail which results in partial creation or removal of domains.
And such partial entries on the server can cause domain recreation to fail with the error :
“The domain “abc.com” already exists in the Apache configuration.” (more…)
Spammers have made life difficult for us all.
These days even legitimate mails get snagged in the vast array of anti-spam defenses deployed by companies.
One such commonly misclassified anti-spam bounce is:
SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<email@example.com>:
host mx.sender.com [x.x.x.x]: 550-Verification failed for <firstname.lastname@example.org>
550-Previous (cached) callout verification failure
550 Sender verify failed
PHP applications like WordPress, Joomla etc. send mail using a PHP feature (aka function) called “mail()”.
Hackers largely exploit the PHP mail function for spamming.
No wonder, Webhosting companies disable PHP mail function on the server as a rule of thumb.
This causes mail from applications like wordpress to fail with the following error.
Mail errors. They hit you at your most vulnerable, and make you want to smash your laptop.
We know. Because we help website owners resolve email errors and other technical issues as part of our Outsourced Hosting Support services for web hosting providers.
Hosting users frustrated with cryptic email errors would submit a support request, and we’ll fix it for them in a few minutes.
Here’s an email bounce error we fixed recently in a Linux cPanel/WHM server: (more…)
file /usr/share/mysql/dutch/errmsg.sys from install of MySQL56-server-5.6.39-1.cp1162.x86_64 conflicts with file from package mysql-community-common-5.7.22-1.el6.x86_64

In today’s post, we’ll take a look at this update failure and how we resolve this for our customers. (more…)
Here at Bobcares, we provide Server Administration and Maintenance services to cPanel/WHM server owners.
An error we sometimes see in cPanel servers is : Account Creation Status: failed

One among the very common issues faced by cPanel/WHM server owners is getting this disk usage warning email:
The filesystem “/dev/sda6”, which is mounted at “/”, has reached “warn” status because it is 84.73% full.
As an outsourced technical support provider for Shared Web Hosting Companies, we often encounter application errors and system faults. In the past couple of months, an error that’s often reported by cPanel/WHM users is:
