    '[a fatal error or timeout occurred while processing this directive] There was an error while fetching http://layer1.cpanel.net/buildapache.rc'

    At approx. 2AM GMT my server stopped working, MySQL was down etc. Now today, my whole server is offline. I try to update Apache but I get the above error....

    I try and load cPanel News but get:

    '[a fatal error or timeout occurred while processing this directive] Unable to fetch Web Host Manager news. The News server may be down or unreachable.'

    I've also tried updating cPanel/WHM but continue to see 'Can't access startfile' errors.

    Any help would be good.

    Thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    Whenever you see this error:
    You need to check the cpanel error log:

    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log

    Without more meaningful errors and what you've found in the root shell, it's difficult to suggest anything else.
