    :confused:httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.

    This is the current status of Apache server in CPanel.

    What has changed, Ip migrations have been done.

    Various items have been migrated to the new IP.

    Do you know anything about this? Perhaps how to rebuild the httpd.conf, or why it's failing?

    Fixed!

    :)Ran:
    root@server [/scripts]# /usr/sbin/httpd configtest

    reported:
    httpd: bad user name sedexpr

    this means:
    there is a problem with a account that was deleted and the record remained. (sedexperience.com)

    Deleted the account records out of httpd.conf manually with VI.

    Restarted Apache.

    Back online.

    That's good, but there is probably a better way. Editing httpd.conf manually has its problems since the items in httpd.conf are created based upon information stored elsewhere in Easyapache3.
