    Mydomain.com/whm was down several weeks ago. And then i did this:
    SSH in and

    Code:
    $ /etc/init.d/cpanel restart
    But after that, i got a lot of email problems. So what is wrong with that? Shall i restart email service after i restart cpanel?
    Many thanks in advance.

    So that means email server works well. BTW, how to stop the command? It keeps running.
    Thanks for your help.
