Solved Centos 5.8 Error in php.ini

You could be experiencing this after the cpanel upgrade and here’s how we got this addressed. This was throwing the crons out of gear as well. You need root access on SSH on the server.

[root@host]~ >> php blah.php 
PHP:  Error parsing /usr/local/lib/php.ini on line 793

Open the file /usr/local/lib/php.ini

nano /usr/local/lib/php.ini

Press ^_ and enter 793

Change the following line

url_rewriter.tags = a=href,area=href,frame=src,input=src,form=,fieldset=

to the one below or simply add the double-quotes

url_rewriter.tags = "a=href,area=href,frame=src,input=src,form=,fieldset="

It didn’t even require a restart.
