Within WHM, there comes the ability to automatically kill processes that are related to IRC Bots and Servers. Usually, this is more of a concern if there is shell access allowed for the cPanel user.
Step One: Log into your WHM Administrative Dashboard.
Step Two: From WHM, in the upper left, search for 'System Health. ' In the available options will be Background Process Killer. Click on this to be brought to the Background Process Killer management page.
The Background Process Killer page may look like below, where you can select check boxes next to the disabled processes and add Trusted users if needed.
With the list of Processes displayed on the Background Process Killer page, you may not be familiar with all of them. Normally it would be recommended to disable all of them by clicking on the checkmark next to each one.
Once you have selected the processes you don't want to be running, click on the blue Save button to save the changes.
From the Background Process Killer page, you can also add in Trusted users that will be allowed to run the processes that you have disabled without having the processes killed.
To add Trusted Users, you can enter them into the text box underneath Trusted Users from the Background Process Killer page. Make sure the usernames are spelled correctly and that there is only one username per line. Once you are done, click the blue Save button to save the changes.
