I have a VPS and a Dedicated Server. Both are the same OS, Centos 6.4 Final 64 bit.

I am using the phantomjs binary version 1.9.2

The permissions are 755 on both systems, and owned by the same user on both systems. The user account on the dedicated is a carbon copy of the account on the vps using cpanel WHM transfer function. The phantomjs binary is the same owner and group on both systems.

For some reason, I can run the binary fine as a user and root on the VPS, but only as root on the dedicated. When I try running as the user on the dedicated, it crashes. Here is the report: http://pastebin.com/H4ZsGxAy

Any ideas???

Here is an strace: http://pastebin.com/5XRdCsXE

line 583: mmap(NULL, 1073741824, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE|PROT_EXEC, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS|MAP_NORESERVE, -1, 0) = -1 ENOMEM (Cannot allocate memory)

Everything past that seems to be SIGSEGV taking over.

There also seems to be a lot of '(Permission denied)' in the beginning. Could this be part of the issue?

I just installed a new user on the dedicated and voila, this new user can run phantomjs fine. This means that there is some sort of set up with the user that I migrated from the VPS through cPanel. I will update this issue and close once I discover exactly what the problem was in case anyone else has to deal with server migration Seg Fault problems like this.
