With a DirectAdmin install on CentOS 6, you may encounter this error:
CRITICAL:yum.cli:Config Error: Error accessing file for config file:///etc/yum/yum.conf
In this specific case, it's not a missing yum.conf, but rather a broken link to the newer curl library from python.
Until a decision is made whether or not to exclude curl from custombuild, the solution is the following:
cd /usr/local/libRelated thread
mv libcurl.so.4.2.0 /root/libcurl.so.4.2.0.moved
ln -s /usr/lib/libcurl.so libcurl.so.4.2.0
Sept 26, 2011 - Update
Custombuild has been updated to allow the curl compile to be disabled. To do this (if you've got CentOS 6), use:
./build set curl no
Then remove custombuild compiled curl libraries/includes, (be very careful with this. Only minimal testing has been done with it)
mv /usr/local/lib/libcurl* .
mv /usr/local/include/curl .
and ensure php still works and is correctly re-linked, eg:
[root@es6 ~]# ldd /usr/local/bin/php | grep curl
libcurl.so.4 => /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4 (0x005df000)
The replacement of the source-compiled version of curl is to use the rpms instead, eg:
yum install libcurl-devel
as the libcurl and curl rpms should already be there by default, as yum needs them.
It was noted that the "--with-curl=/usr/local/lib
" line in the configure.php5 did not hurt the inclusion of curl into php during the php compile, so will be left, unless new information about it surfaces.
