    I have tried everything I can think of including downloading and reinstalling cpanel itself.

    here is the output from easyapache
    Code:
    root@stan [~]# apachectl restart
    -bash: apachectl: command not found
    root@stan [~]# /scripts/easyapache

    This is buildapache version 10.0.1b

    If you have installed third party modules that buildapache does not install, you will probably need to recompile them after apache is rebuilt.  You may experience an unusable apache that produces segmentation faults until the old modules are recompiled or removed.
    
    Select skill level:
       If it is possible for you to run phpsuexec, we recommend you do this
       by choosing option 2, or using the advanced options.
    
       phpsuexec combinded with webroot protection will prevent people
       from reading other users webroots.   If you are unable to use
       phpsuexec we recommend you enable PHP open_basedir security
       inside of Web Host Manager.
    
       The following does not work with phpsuexec:  php commands in
       .htaccess, php http authentication.
    
    1) Beginner without/phpsuexec + webroot protection support (*** DEFAULT ***)
    2) Beginner with/phpsuexec support + web root protection
    3) Beginner with/php mcrypt support (if php will not compile, you must choose option 1)
    4) Beginner with/php gd+freetype support (if php will not compile, you must choose option 1)
    5) Beginner with/php gd+freetype+mcrypt support (if php will not compile, you must choose option 1)
    6) Advanced (Experts Only, At Your Own Risk)
    7) Advanced [Load Previous Config] (Experts Only, At Your Own Risk)
    8) Failsafe mode (Resets apache config to default, USE ONLY AS A LAST RESORT)

    root@stan [~]# 
    
    Of course I tried just about every option that script offers by now. ITs as if apache isnt installed at all and cpanel refuses to try to install it.
    Things worked great until a few hours ago it goes down on a routine restart of apache.

    the httpd, httpd.worker, and apachectl binaries are no where to be found. I lfed them to locate and to find / and turned up nothing. wince locate didnt have record of them those files haveb een gone a while now.

    any ideas?

    The reason is right there :P

    Have a look in /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf for a vhost entry for user "owned" <-- that alone is rather suspicious username. Comment it out, and run "service apache configtest" you may then get further errors. To restart apache after the conf is fixed: /scripts/restartsrv_httpd

    now how did such a thing get like that

    actually the group name was suppose to be owned2kk after looking at vipw and /etc/groups

    I edited the group name and apache started up perfectly
