Why is it a Epic Pain in the A** to restart my Apcache Server. Why doesn't the WHM have a easy Reset? Who came up with this stupid idea not to have easy links to restart common services?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Here is the problem. I installed a new SSL. Deleted my expired one. However if you go to my domain it still thinks the old SSL is still there... But now there is NO easy restart Apache. So it's been at least a year that I even need to login via SSH. So I try to login. Hummm Service isn't enabled anymore for some reason. So I enable it in cPanel. I try to login in again.. Hummmm my login password isn't working or my Certificate got nerfed. Great back to cPanel. Hummm No Brute Force option to clear my IP on SSH... Now what Geniuses?
Seriously that is a Epic Pain in the A**!
Thanks for posting. I'm not sure if you're still experiencing issues, but WHM has built in features to assist with restarting common services. The Apache web server is one of the services that WHM can help restart. Once signed into WHM you will want to navigate to the "Restart Services" page and click to restart Apache. If an error is returned your next step will be researching the error. If no errors are returned, but Apache isn't running still, you may be able to get a more verbose error by trying to restart Apache via command line.
