One or more of the WHMCS database tables appear to be either missing or corrupted. Please check and repair.
This error can be misleading especially if you know you are using a known good backup or restoration of the WHMCS database. The error can also be that the user lacks permissions to read and write to the database.
To check to this in MySQL shell:
GRANT read,write to dbusername@localhost on dbna........
The location of the hash is stored in the configuration.php file and is really a bit of pain to have to pull out everytime but this is how WHMCS stores its encryption key hash to see the full credit card number.........
CPanel says you can access 98% of the functions through CLI which experienced Unix/Linux admins prefer for simplicity and for scripting. I've never found CPanel easy to use from the admin panel, it seems everything is hard to find and a simple task becomes a series of hunts.
So for people like me here's the list: http://cpanel.net/system-administrators/command-line-scrip........
After the "latest" update one of our clients asked us to figure out the issue and it turns out it is related to the mail settings.
Basically all e-mails were being sent with blank text/no body.
Go to "Setup ->General Settings ->Mail" and just click on "Save" and it will work again.
Note that this assumes you didn't break things yourself by changing any settings. WHMCS may tell y........
root@hkhosting [/]# service httpd start

I was worried the server was hacked, I was logged in already as root but couldn't login to CPanel or a new SSHsession. I even reset the password from the shell and it did not work still.
The reason is CPanel Hulk, it detected a brute-force attack so it locked down the root account entirely even from the correct password. According to cPanel the best way around this is to whitelist your IP.........
"Server Configuration" -> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup
Scroll to: "Nameservers" (at the bottom)
From there you can set the names of the nameserver and their IPs.
It's very weird and confusing that nothing under IP Functions/DNS has or links to this.........
CPanel ->Basic cPanel &WHMSetup
At the bottom you'll see them, set the nameservers you want to use and the corresponding A record if needed.
Then all new domains will use those settings/nameservers.
It's strange that there's no section for this specifically.........
Basically it's usually because your Cpanel has new IPs and the old IPs it knows are no longer available/working/valid.
The solution is to change the site's IP but you may run into issues for various reasons. Here is what I encountered below.
It redirects there even though public_html is empty and doesn't have any index or htaccess redirect.
This issue happened after a CPanel migration, the site is bein........
I've recently used CPanel on the admin side for the first time and have to say I hate it. Everything from the layout to the functionality screams "hackish". It just lacks so many common sense features and way of working.
I was never 100% impressed with Plesk but the basics were definitely laid out and done in a sensible manner, even though it is made by a Russian company, they definitely thought about how to make a Control Panel.
I have no idea why people........
This function and others may not work with the stock PHPinstall on Centos/CPanel: Fatal error: Call to > undefined function imagecreatefromjpeg()
Even with libjpeg-devel installed it won't work because PHP was not compiled with jpeg support, so we have to do the dirty work ourselves :)
Here is the command/yum's I did to install missing libraries for PHP that configure will complain about (yes it is a one by one process).
yum install bzip2-........
