Setting a Service to Automatically Restart Upon Failure

You don’t have to adjust or add settings for this because cPanel and WHM already automatically restart a service when it fails.  The chkservd constantly monitors all the services to make sure they are working properly.   Every 5 minutes the chkservd decides which services are online and which need restarting. Services monitored include those such as, MySQL, Apache, BIND, Interchange, Webmail, Exim, etc.

To see results from the chkservd look through:


  • The /var/log/chkservd.log log file
  • WHM’s Server Information dashboard
    • Home > Server Status > Service Status
  • Ask for it in email
