Today i upgraded apache on a cpanel server. easyapache failed to compile apache and give the error.

I tried running easyapache from ssh and whm with different options selected, it always show above message.
On cpanel forum there is no solution for such a probem, there are many having same problem, cpanel staff always ask to submit a support ticket.
So i have submitted a ticket and starting trying fixing the problem. Tried changing cpanel versions, but none worked.
At last i got a clue from the error message, it was one line, i do not see it before
!! Could not empty path ‘/home/cpeasyapache/src’ !!
I just renamed the folder, run easyapache and it started working.
mv cpapachebuild cpapachebuild_old
mv cpeasyapache cpeasyapache_old
