How to fix cpanel easyapache failed YUM error

cpanel logoMost of the times we need to run easyapache on cPanel Linux server combination to update, install modules or version.

The things may go wrong and easyapache may fail in some cases. Hence, I have came up with this post which might help you to get over such conditions which were also faced by me.

The given solutions worked for me and therefore sharing with you all. 🙂

 

!! The server's system package manager, 'YUM', failed. !

Solution : 1

Try running following commands

yum clean metadata
yum clean all

and then running easyapache.

Solution : 2

Easyapache requires package manager to be working properly and if found nay issues easyapache fails

First try running yum update command

yum -y update

If the above command fails then it seems to the RPM database corruption issue which can be resolved by running below commands

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.*

rpm -vv --rebuilddb

and update yum

yum update

Once yum update is successful try running easyapache which should work without any error now.

Solution : 3

If the first  solution doesn't work, probably you need to check the OpenSSL on server.

file /usr/lib/openssl/engines/libsureware.so from install of openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5_5.7.i386 conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5_5.7.i686
file /usr/lib/openssl/engines/libubsec.so from install of openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5_5.7.i386 conflicts with file from package openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5_5.7.i686

The OpenSSLl errors are due to a i386 build package mistakenly being uploaded to the i686 repository by the CentOS team.

Just re-install OpenSSL using below command

rpm -e --justdb --nodeps openssl.i386
yum install openssl

Once installation is completed proceed with easyapache .

Most of the times issues arise due to packages with 32 bit and 64 bit. Always make sure to install correct packages as per the OS bit.

 If any feedback, queries are always welcome!
