    The "whostmgr2" is the binary that contains the necessary code for applying changes made to cpanel.config.
    Are you trying to update cpanel config and cpupdate files manually ?

    When we make changes in /var/cpanel/cpanel.config, /etc/cpupdate.conf etc, we execute "whostmgr2" tcommand to save the tweak settings.

    eg:- /usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/bin/whostmgr2 --updatetweaksettings

    Hello,

    Please note that it's not a good idea to run that command manually. You can save most changes to /var/cpanel/cpanel.config by simply restarting cPanel after saving the file.

    Thank you.
