Overview

You can use the Restart Services interfaces to restart services within the WHM interface.

Note:
  • To view these interfaces, you must log in as the root user or your host must enable Restart Services.
  • You cannot restart a stopped service. To start or stop services, use WHM’s Service Manager interface (WHM >> Home >> Service Configuration >> Service Manager)
  • If these interfaces fail to restart a service, the service may have additional problems. For additional methods to restart services and troubleshoot service issues, read our How to Restart Services documentation.
