While working one of the clients server
We saw an issue where going from WHM > plugin > Softacalous and opening it resulted in blank page.
The issue is due to corrupt files in softacalous.
To fix this issue softacalous need to be reinstalled
to reinstall to go
rm -rf softaculous
wget -N http://files.softaculous.com/install.sh
chmod 755 install.sh
Once done softacalous was working fine
While working on a server on installing php 5.6 on centos 6 OS
I was getting error “Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel. Please verify its path and try again”
After googleing around I found this issue is due to https mentioned in the .repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d
[root@host yum.repos.d]# ls -la
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Oct 28 05:15 .
drwxr-xr-x. 80 root root 4096 Oct 28 05:16 ..
-rw-r–r–. 1 root root 954 Oct 28 05:15 epel.repo
-rw-r–r–. 1 root root 1056 Nov 4 2012 epel-testing.repo

-rw-r–r–. 1 root root 966 Jul 4 2015 webtatic-testing.repo
I checked in all files with .repo extension and an replaced all https with http and all repository started working fine
