How to restart services in cPanel

The services must be restarted through the WHM interface, by opening “Home” > “Restart Services”.

If the restart of the service through the WHM interface failed, then the script should be used:


If you are using IPv6 and the command was executed:

service network restart

That IPv6 does not work to solve the problem:

/etc/init.d/cpipv6 restart (for cPanel & WHM version 11.52 and earlier)
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_cpipv6 (for cPanel & WHM version 54 and later)

In extreme cases, you can try to restart the service directly:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/service restart
systemctl restart service-name.service
