    When trying to restart Apache, I get the following:

    Code:
    Waiting for httpd to restart..............finished.
    
    httpd (/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr ./reshttpd) running as root with PID 10916
    
    httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.
    I've run an update (/scripts/upcp --force), with no improvement.

    Test your httpd.conf file.
    In shell:
    /usr/sbin/httpd configtest

    What errors are logged by Apache when the issue occurs?

    The following command may be used to monitor Apache logs when triggering a restart via WHM:
    Code:
    # tail -fvn0 /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
