    Is there any way to resolve this issue without reinstallation of server, if server provider already denied to change permission of /usr directory?

    i am facing this issue 2nd time and didn't get any solution except reinstalltion.

    my error message is:

    *** /usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/startup ERROR: ***
    Refusing to start because log directory /usr/local/cpanel/logs is not writable!
    The specific error was: Read-only file system at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/LogCheck.pm line 29.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    A read only file system is not the same thing as permissions on a directory. You can search for read only file system and find lots of info about it. Here's one thread on these forums:

    No, I wouldn't if I was you. If you're unsure of your next steps, contacting your Hosting Provider or hiring someone to assist you with this is suggested.
