I can get to whm just fine, and everything seems to be ok.

I can access the cPanels from port 2082 (http), but just not by using 2083.

When I go to https://site.com:2083 IE just hangs and never loads a page.

I've restarted httpd, but that hasn't made a difference.

I've ran (as root):

/etc/rc.d/init.d/cpanel restart

and everything said OK. but still no 2083 connections.

I've tried connecting from serveral machines thinking maybe it was my local machine, but none of them can pull up cPanel on 2083 with https.

Thanks for any help.

Yes, I found the fix.

Basically stunnel went bad for port 2083.

What stunnel does is listen on port A and do all the https stuff, sending just the http through to port B on that same box.

This way you can write a http-only server (I'm guessing that's what whm/cpanel is) and stick stunnel in front of it and have a https server too without any additional work.

OK, so now for the fix. Which, I've slept since then so I don't exaclty remember what I did. :)

IIRC all you have to do is run /usr/local/cpanel/startstunnel. This script kills all current stunnels and then restarts them.

Try it out and let me know if that does the trick. (so the next guy that comes along will see that's the answer to the problem).

It appears to have worked. I'll give a good couple of hours though and post back if it's still giving trouble.

Thanks! :)

Great!

Glad it worked for you (and that's the fix, I'll have to remember it).

Cpanel down every day 2082

I have cpanel going down every day at :2082 Mail also stops.

If I restart cpanel all will work.

Is there a problem someone could suggest me to fix??

Have you tried posting this outside of this message thread? I'd put it in Support->cPanel, Support->WHM, and Support->Backend
