Setting a Service to Automatically Restart Upon Failure

Share This Article [TheChamp-Sharing]

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 contains the results from each check that it performs. 
  • WHM’s Server Information interface (WHM >> Home  >> Server Status >> Server Information) displays the results from each check. 
  • You can configure the system to email you the results from each check.
