Child failed to make LIVEAPI connection to cPanel

Child failed to make LIVEAPI connection to cPanel.

I am having the same issue. Is there a workaround or fix in progress?

Hi @user3361, @mark26, I’ve not hit this one myself, but did check with some folks in the know. In most cases this is because the version of cPanel you are running was updated which means the cPanel plugin version installed by Cloudflare needs to also be updated. This is normally not an issue except where there are changes to the core structure of cPanel.

Suggest first to confirm whether cPanel was updated and the version this was updated from/to, grep version /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern/Cloudflare/config.js and update the Cloudflare version bash <(curl -s -k [YOUR_HOST_API_KEY] -n '[YOUR_COMPANY_NAME]' Please post back and let us know how it works out.

Thanks cloonan! cPanel had updated itself several times since I last tried using the Cloudflare pluign, and updating it did fix the issue.
