segmentation fault or whatever but still not working
It took me a while in investigating again and coming back to forum as I broke all of my system in debugging.
I initially had a RAID mirroring installed on Redhat FC4 so to debut I ran memtest on memory which passed without any errors. Secondly I took primary hard disk and performed full format using DOS disk which came back without any errors and no bad sectors at all. I tried to establish RAID again but secondary disk wouldn't boot up so I literally *ed up my system. I had a backup of system so performed format on secondary disk again and again no errors at all.
Now I decided to re-install system, one of the newer disk is now main disk, older disk is spare where I am keeing a scheduled backup with rdiff-backup instead of mirroring.
Worked fine for couple of weeks, been playing with rdiff bakup and found quite handy & useful.
Two days back I got a cronwatch error again I think this is where my previous problems started from.
Cron started producing following error.
Use of uninitialized value in numeric le (<=) at /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch line 683.
I can replicate this error by executing /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch but it produces LogWatch output perfectly which I get in root email. I suspect yum installed following updates around the first error.
kernel.i686 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4 & kernel-devel.i686 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4
and dhclient.i386 10:3.0.2-34.FC4 xterm.i386 208-2.FC4 a day before that.
Today when I tried to stop firewall, looked working but again I thought of restarting couple of services as a test and got stuck there. Services Restart command doesn't work again.
I have now uninstalled following and still cannot restart services.
rpm -e kernel.i686 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4 kernel-devel.i686 2.6.15-1.1833_FC4
In my today's investigation I also get segmentation fault when I execute following.
rm /root/ispconfig/.ispconfig_lock -rf
/root/ispconfig/php/php -q /root/ispconfig/scripts/writeconf.php
As I have yum scheduled to update every night, I suppose this is something done by updates which ruined ispconfig or rather the system itself.
I do not believe there are any hardware errors in disk or memory as I have performed full tests earlier and do not see any symptoms at all. Not getting any luck with ISPConfig, not sure if it is worth trying webmin.
Any suggestions please?
