cPanel Internal PHP or 3rd party PHP is not working.

I came into an issue like I was not able to install softaculous in server since the 3rd party php in cPanel was broken. The cPanel version in server was 11.36. The following has had no output.

# /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/php -v

Unfortunately there is not script “/scripts/makecpphp” available on cPanel latest verion 11.36, there is entirely a different method to correct internal php issue in new cPanel.

The issue here was the RPMs for PHP were broken, along with a few other applications, and had to be reinstalled. I did it in the following way.
# /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms
[20130509.121247] Problems were detected with cPanel-provided files which are RPM
[20130509.121247] If you did not make these changes intentionally, you can correct
them by running:
[20130509.121247]> /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms –fix
[20130509.121247] The following files were found to be altered from their original
[20130509.121247] bandmin,1.6.1,9.cp1136

[20130509.121247] cpanel-wwwcount,2.5,2.cp1136
Do you want to repair these RPMs?(y/n): y

You should be good to go at this time.

The issue has been resolved.
