Error while connecting to MYSQL: (XID 4ea7s9) Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Mysql.pm line 181
This error occurs because the /root/.my.cnf has the wrong/outdated password for MySQL root user. Simply edit /root/.my.cnf with the correct user. This normally happens if you update outside of cPanel.........

Your cPanel may not work if you enter your non-main IP when setting it up. The way to fix it is to go back to the setup screen by removing the following file:
This can happen because port 80 is not open, or your license has expired and/or your IP is out of date and also if the license server itself from cPanel is having issues.
In most cases as long as you have a valid license the following command will solve it:
Updating cPanel license...Done. Update succeeded.
Building global cache for cpanel...Done
Your server does not support SNI, so all of your SSL websites must use the same SSL certificate. An update to the certificate on an existing SSL website will affect all of your SSL websites, and new SSL websites must use the currently installed certificate.........
HTTP error 401
You do not have permission to access this page.
It was actually a bad hosts entry or where your IP was somehow added to /etc/hosts.deny this is what you will see from CPanel........
It is very handy to remember this and nice that the logs for all domains are in a central location:
If a service is not working and resetting it to defaults is not working and you get bizarre error messages it is probably a broken update and possibly duplicate package.
Take in this case "exim" not working even after resetting to defaults.
Check for duplicates:
rpm -aq|grep exim

It's a great feature to ward off bruteforce but is also annoying because you think you have the wrong password when you can't login.
How to Disable cp hulk for 5 minutes
CPanel says you can access 98% of the functions through CLI which experienced Unix/Linux admins prefer for simplicity and for scripting. I've never found CPanel easy to use from the admin panel, it seems everything is hard to find and a simple task becomes a series of hunts.
So for people like me here's the list: http://cpanel.net/system-administrators/command-line-scrip........

I was worried the server was hacked, I was logged in already as root but couldn't login to CPanel or a new SSHsession. I even reset the password from the shell and it did not work still.
The reason is CPanel Hulk, it detected a brute-force attack so it locked down the root account entirely even from the correct password. According to cPanel the best way around this is to whitelist your IP.........
On some CPanel installs we see complaints of "/usr/local/cpanel/bin/apache_conf_distiller" causing 100% cpu usage without any solution.
Killing the process causes it to spawn again, actually it seems it tends to spawn multiple processes itself.
Restarting CPanel itself is a temporary but not permanent solution.........
"Server Configuration" -> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup
Scroll to: "Nameservers" (at the bottom)
From there you can set the names of the nameserver and their IPs.
It's very weird and confusing that nothing under IP Functions/DNS has or links to this.........

Basically it's usually because your Cpanel has new IPs and the old IPs it knows are no longer available/working/valid.
The solution is to change the site's IP but you may run into issues for various reasons. Here is what I encountered below.
It redirects there even though public_html is empty and doesn't have any index or htaccess redirect.
This issue happened after a CPanel migration, the site is bein........
This error in my experience is user error although CPanel doesn't help, this message doesn't give you much to go on.
Let's talk more about the process of setting up SSL with CPanel.
Your site must have a dedicated/non-shared IP to even have the option of creating an SSL Certificate.
You must create a Private Key (do not delete this private key!)
You must create a CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
Use CSR to create cert........
* All parts have been installed *
wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest;sh latest
That one command above will do it all (and it takes a long time to install/compile). After that you can access CPanel with your root login information by visiting https://yourdomain-or-ip.com:2087
I personally don't like CPanel (bloated, full of bugs, no shared SSL, difficult to use etc..)but I admit it's easier to install than........
I experienced this with CPanel's Exim after an auto-update (a Google of this error produces lots of complaints with few clear solutions). In this case I'll put the solution at the top.
Run /scripts/buildeximconf to rebuild the Exim config and it should be fine after that.

It simply doesn't work, the Apache VHOSTS remain 100% unchanged, why does this script exist? I'm sure it would work from the control panel but I am locked out because my IP was changed and it doesn't match the CPanel license. I wish CPanel would make it easier to update the license IP.
I even took it a step farther, I manually edited the vhosts and restarted Apache and it........

This server was experiencing loads of up to 80 and maxing out the RAM and kmemsize on a CPanel VPS. There were literally dozens if not hundreds of exim processes. I have no idea why exim has such a design that would allow it to consume this much CPU and RAM. Any normal MTA should not be spawning so many processes, it should be processing them in sequence and if it is going to spawn hundreds of processes in response to a large volume of mail, it's better to have a delayed del........
I've recently used CPanel on the admin side for the first time and have to say I hate it. Everything from the layout to the functionality screams "hackish". It just lacks so many common sense features and way of working.
I was never 100% impressed with Plesk but the basics were definitely laid out and done in a sensible manner, even though it is made by a Russian company, they definitely thought about how to make a Control Panel.
I have no idea why people........

This function and others may not work with the stock PHPinstall on Centos/CPanel: Fatal error: Call to > undefined function imagecreatefromjpeg()
Even with libjpeg-devel installed it won't work because PHP was not compiled with jpeg support, so we have to do the dirty work ourselves :)
Here is the command/yum's I did to install missing libraries for PHP that configure will complain about (yes it is a one by one process).

This can be very annoying and CPanel doesn't seem to document it, or it's not found or made as obvious as it should be. It's always funny when I find it more difficult to work with a control panel than to do everytihng manually without CPanel or even Plesk.
So once again, the default serve path for contents is: /usr/local/apache/htdocs and this is especially applicable when accessing Apache by just an IP which is unbound to any domain at this point.........
cat /proc/user_beancounters produces the following:

Ihave no idea how to get the loopback device working in OpenVZ, but what's more frustrating is that I purchased a CPanel license for my VPS and clearly it is not "VPS Optimized". Although everything does seem to work at this point despite that error.
