    This morning I performed an upgrade of my WHM. It is now on the latest version, WHM 11.40.1 (build 8).
    I needed to upgrade MySQL first cause that was still 5.0, so I upgraded that first to version 5.5.34-cll

    After performing both those updated I am now no longer able to see the contents on my website cause every link shows a 503 error:
    "Service Temporarily Unavailable

    The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

    Additionally, a 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    For complete info here are all version info which might be usefull.
    Apache version 2.2.26
    PHP version 5.4.23
    MySQL version 5.5.34-cll


    I have been checking some logs for the past few hours but i really have no idea what is causing this 503 error. Before I did the upgrade this server was running just fine.
    Since I see no errors in the logs (but I am pretty novice with this) I have no clue how to troubleshoot this.

    Any assistance that can be offered would be very welcome!
    Thanks in advance.

    How did you do the upgrade to version 5.5?

    What do you see in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log when you get those 503 errors?

    For the MySQL upgrade I simply did it in whm: Home »Software »MySQL Upgrade



    There is nothing in that error log when that 503 errors shows (nothing important at least).
    And it shows for every attempt I make to view that domain. No matter which file, which folder, it always and every time shows that 503 error.
    Here is the log with the latest 30 entires:

    To update, this was resolved by disabling the following line in the Apache configuration file:

    Code:
    LoadModule bw_module modules/mod_bw.so
    Thank you.

    Thanks for all the assistance in this matter. Our server is once again properly running.

    To make sure all info is here I would like to add the following:

    "This is a known issue with bw_module that one of our developers opened a bug report
    about in September of this year. It is filed under case ID # 78869"

    Yes, there is an internal case open to address the issue with EasyApache incorrectly configuring mod_bandwidth. The case number is 78869. A time frame for a resolution is not yet available, but feel free to monitor the change log for the inclusion of this number:

    EasyApache Change Log

    Thank you.
