WHM Error: Add New IP Address – Skipping: “Already Added”

发布于 2015-08-25  101 次阅读


Sometimes, something odd happens when you go to add an IP address to your server, you’ll see this error:

$IPADDRESS is already an active IP. Skipping $IPADDRESS .. already added !


ADD an IP address

 

If that happens there are a couple of things to check and correct. Hopefully one of these will work for you.

Make sure that the IP address you’re trying to add has been removed from these files:

1

2

3

/etc/hosts

/etc/ips

/etc/mail_reverse_dns

If you are trying to add back the IP that was previously the primary IP address, you will  need to update this file:

1

/var/cpanel/mainip

Once you edit the mainip file to reflect the new IP address, run these commands:

1

2

3

/etc/init.d/network restart

/etc/init.d/ipaliases restart

/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf

Now you should be able to add the IP address to WHM again.
