    few days ago my server started acting strangely - around 22:00 it starts restarting services httpd, ftpd, exim, cpsrvd, pop, mysql, spamd and this goes until around 7:00 am.

    Error message in email is like this:

    httpd failed @ Tue Sep 26 06:34:11 2006. A restart was attempted automagicly.

    Why is this happening? I'm on WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.8.2-R119.

    start with checking your logs
    /var/log/messages
    /var/log/exim_mainlog
    /usr/local/apache/logs
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs

    watch loads and processes in top. is backup or any other activity scheduled around then?

    update your cpanel version right away. 10.8.2-R119 has a security issue.

    I ran the upgrade script right after I saw the announcement, no upgrade happened. Now when I do it it upgraded my servers fine. I probably was too fast ;-)

    As fot he logs, I checked only /var/log/messages and I will investigate the others as well.

    thank you

    Upgrade...

    Login into your server on the right hand side under "cPanel" -> Upgrade to Latest Version. Before clicking "Upgrade" first check out the Update Settings, as per your wish. Do let me know if I can be able to help you out a bit more.

    there is feature of cpanel
    service chkservd restart .it checks the service and if it finds anything wrong , it restarts it

    If you need to update the cpanel go in whm >> update config >> set to stable and then
    click on whm>>upgrade to latest version

    or you can run /script/upcp on shell
