    I am getting a stream of "FAILED : httpd" messages from chkservd even though the httpd server is up.

    The site is working and even the "Apache Status" in WHM works ok. But "Service Status" shows httpd as down.

    Tried:
    • Restarting Apache
    • Restarting Cpanel
    • Restarting chkservd
    There is nothing in the apache logs pointing to any issues.

    Any ideas?

    Hello,

    Could you verify if the email notifications you are receiving include recent time-stamps and aren't messages that were delivered after some time in the mail queue?

    Thank you.

    Yes, the timestamps are all up to date - does not look like any queued messages.

    What command does it use to verify that the server is up? I can try running that from the command line to see if there is an issue there.

    Hello,

    This command will let you know if Apache is detected as running:

    Code:
    /scripts/restartsrv_httpd --status
    Thank you.
