    I came into work this morning to find the server locked up. I could log into ssh but could not get httpd up and running, so could not get to whm or cpanel. I tried to restart httpd but it never came up so I restarted the server from ssh.

    The server came up and started serving web pages but in the Service Status area of WHM I get the following...

    apache (1.3.27 (Unix)) failed
    exim (exim-3.36-140_cpanel_stmpcontrol_antivirus) failed
    ftpd up
    imap up
    mysql (4.0.12) failed
    syslogd up
    webmail up
    Server Load 0.02 (2 cpus)
    Memory Used 19.3 %
    Swap 1 %
    Disk sda6 (/) 32 %
    Disk sda1 (/boot) 16 %
    Disk sda5 (/home) 11 %
    Disk sda2 (/usr) 78 %
    Disk sda7 (/var) 10 %
    Disk sdb1 (/backup) 2 %

    I have tried restarting from WHM but they still show the same status. It is serving pages, but I am concerned. Any advice?? Thanks...

    Well, it seems somehow (miraculously), without my help, all the services seem to be OK now as shown in WHM. ODD!!

    If anyone has a clue what happened I'm all ears! :confused:

    I don't have a clue what caused the lock up. I can attest to the fact that WHM will often report several services as "Failed" from a minute to several minutes after a reboot.

    That's because chkservd is loaded before the rest are so it says they are down. It's in the boot sequence of events.

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/chkservd restart

    should solve the problem :)
