    haiii all Admins..

    I have a dedicated server..
    When enabling shell fork bomb through WHM it says ENABLED, and when we refresh the page it will be again in DISABLED state.
    can any one let me know wt the reason is ?

    Steps I followed :
    1. Cpanel updated to Stable,current release.
    2. Disabled csf
    3. No php functions in php.ini are disabled. (May not be needed, but just in case)
    4. Nothing in error logs.

    Any hints will be greatly appreciated.

    What is your Operating System release/version number?

    What is your cPanel version number?

    Is the issue occurring on just one system or multiple systems?

    Please let us know the output from the following commands, entered via root SSH access:
    Code:
    # grep -H '' /usr/local/cpanel/version /var/cpanel/envtype
    # stat /etc/bashrc /etc/profile /etc/profile.d/limits.csh /etc/profile.d/limits.sh
    # grep -Hn "cPanel" /etc/bashrc /etc/profile /etc/profile.d/limits.csh /etc/profile.d/limits.sh
