Shared object error during cPanel Apache build

I was trying to add PHP Zip support on my cPanel server today and when Apache went to restart, it failed with the folowing error:

Cannot load /usr/local/apache/libexec/ into server: /usr/local/apache/libexec/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After a Google search, I found that I needed to run:

cd /usr/local/cpanel/apache

/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -iac mod_auth_passthrough.c
/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -iac mod_bwlimited.c
/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -iac mod_log_bytes.c

I was able to start Apache afterwards and everything is back to normal…
