How can a Daemon be Restarted?

One must log in as the root user in order to restart a daemon.

Most of the services can be restarted with the help of WHM’s Restart Services interface (Home >> Restart Services). Also, one may need to restart some services in the command line. All standard Linux services (like HTTP, FTP, Exim, cPanel & WHM, or MySQL®) have restartsrv_* scripts in the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/ directory. One can read our WHM Scripts documentation to gather more information on this and a list of restartsrv_*  scripts available.
