    On a cPanel/WHM server, Apache (httpd) should run as user nobody.

    Have you tried this?

    I'm no expert, but when I see this issue on one of my servers, this is what I do:

    1) Record a few PIDS (write them down)
    2) Go into Service Status/Apache Status
    3) Look for the PID

    That will typically tell you which domain is causing the issue.

    I hope you find this helpful.

    The other option is to run with suphp which makes tracking down this sort of thing a lot easier; plus the server is a lot more secure with it.
