    Got a client message saying their website is down, I go to check and see the VPS is running fine and I can access FTP but I cannot access WHM on 2087 or 2083.

    I've tried restarting cPanel and services (service cPanel restart) and also rebooted the bare metal server. The sites are still not up and I cannot access cPanel.

    One of our workstations recently was cleared of malware, and I'm unsure if that had to do something with it. Port 2087/2083 is available on LAN but not WAN, and iptables for the VPS is:

    Currently all domains are not functioning and I need to find a solution. The odd thing is, the default cPanel page is view-able when connecting directly to the server's IP via browser. Please help-

    Sounds like a dns trouble. Are you connecting to whm/cpanel using server hostname ( or a domain name )? Are you able to connect using http://IPADDRESS:2086 or http://IPADDRESS:2082?

    Both https://IP:2086 and 2082 in secure/non-secure is not working. I tried using hostnames and also IP.

    I do believe this is a named issue, but the output of chkconfig --list | grep named shows:

    named 0:eek:ff 1:eek:ff 2:eek:ff 3:eek:n 4:eek:ff 5:eek:n 6:eek:ff

    Strangely I cannot access /var/log/messages (Permission denied).

    I will be reporting a ticket to cPanel, but if anyone has any ideas, please help. Cheers
