First of all Im a total noob in this so if you do decide to help me please be very specific.
Thank You
So all the http adress on my server are down I can still log on thru FTP but when I type in the adree in a browser I get this.
Code:
The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

    *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
          moments.

    *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
          connection.

    *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
          that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
and here is the server status

also when I try and restart the http server I get an error
Code:
Waiting for httpd to restart.... . . . . . . . . . . finished.

httpd status

root     13204  1.0  0.8  18452 17044 ?        S    14:12   0:00 /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr ./reshttp
httpd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.
Anyhelp would be appreciated.
thank you

SSH to the server and run this command, this will help in troubleshooting the problem you have:
/sbin/service httpd configtest

When you run the command:

# /sbin/service httpd configtest

Do you get any similar lines being displayed?

Warning: DocumentRoot [/home/username/public_html/folder] does not exist
If so, you need to remove these redundant entries and then restart httpd.

No, you don't have/need to reboot the server. Rebooting the server Should be done in two cases, right after the kernel is being re-compiled/upgraded, or the server crash and won't respond to any thing.

You can seek help from your Data Center, or you can seek professional help.
