    Since a WHM update (11.38 I believe) I had been getting an error when rebuilding httpd.conf or restarting apache regarding my server's hostname:

    Code:
    info [apache_conf_distiller] Missing owner for domain hostname.com, force lookup to root
    Well I Googled the error again today and came across a post on cPanels forum that said to run the Change Hostname wizard in WHM again and that I didn't even need to change the name so I did. But now it seems to have gotten even worse!

    Code:
    info [build_apache_conf] Missing IP for domain hostname.com, using 1.2.3.4
    info [build_apache_conf] Missing ServerName for domain hostname.com, using hostname.com
    info [build_apache_conf] Missing port for domain hostname.com, using 80
    info [build_apache_conf] Missing user for domain hostname.com, using nobody
    info [build_apache_conf] Missing owner for domain hostname.com, force lookup to root
    info [build_apache_conf] Missing group for domain hostname.com, using nobody
    Once that happened I tried changing the hostname to something else then changing it back. Same thing. I also tried rebuilding the httpd.conf using /scripts/buildhttpdconf which also had no effect.

    Has anyone else seen this and/or have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Hey Dan,

    Have you modified the vhost for the hostname in httpd.conf manually? Is the hostname also a cPanel domain? You may want to open a support ticket on this one.

    Hi Mathew,

    No I haven't modified it nor have I created a domain for the hostname but I have created one for the domain the host name uses.

    Funny thing is that everything seems to work just fine. I'll wait for a bit and see if another update fixes it or not before putting in a ticket.

    Thanks Mathew!
