Apache error after updating to WHM 11.40


If you run into the following error after updating WHM to version 11.40 then you simply need to run EasyApache to fix it. Essentially it looks like they are adding support for IPV6 and due to the old httpd.conf not supporting it you get this error when trying to run the apache_conf_compiler.

There was more but I've truncated it to just show the error the first time it shows.
Thanks for this info! I ran into the same error when using WHM's Include Editor (Service configuration > Apache configuration > Include editor).
