    Hi All,
    I have a single server running Apache & mysql (standard setup).

    I am looking for a way to allow myself to STOP/START apache & mysql from a secure browser.

    1. Does WHM run it's own httpd dameon? I ask beacuse the current apache installation using WP is crashing and the httpd process is killed.

    2. Can WHM start (not restart) other httpd dameon on the same server?

    I would essentially, stand up a new httpd instance and mysql instance to manage the other instances.

    I believe this is the case but i have never used WHM before.
    Thanks,
    Hades666

    Hello :)

    cPanel only supports the versions of Apache included with EasyApache. Manual installations of Apache are not supported, and will likely result in problems when using cPanel/WHM. The same is true for MySQL, in that only the versions and installation method provided by cPanel are supported.

    Rather than restarting the Apache and MySQL services every few minutes, you may want to consider investigating further into what is causing the services to fail.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the response.

    While we are looking into troubleshooting the stop/start, the owner was looking for a secure front facing method to stop/start the modules on his own.

    Thank you for clarifying the requirements.
