I've recently had some issues crop up in WHM. It all seemed to run together because a few weeks ago I had recompiled apache and php with easyapache no problem and server status and all worked fine. Then recently I went in to use easyapache and there was an error message. I did a force reload of cpanel and it fixed the problem.
Then I noticed you couldnt get apache status. You get: Failed to receive status information from Apache. I've checked error_log but nothing there. But it gets worse. Now if I try either a forceful or a graceful reboot it says rebooting but that just seems to hang forever. Finally I find that I have to manually click in whm to restart all the services, dns server, http server, so forth. Seems something is corrupted but not sure where to start/look. My skills are just above basic but I'm learning fast.
I'm running the latest build of apache 2.2. Also the latest stable build of cpanel 11.24.4 and whm 11.24.2. The server seems to be working ok otherwise and I have modsec security installed, have run chkrootkit showing it seems to be clean and so forth.
Not sure where to start here and hoping someone more experienced can give me a clue.
