    This is my first VPS Server and I JUST figured out how to access cpanel.
    But on my parralells I tried to start HTTPD and it says "[Broken External Image]: Error:Failed to start the "httpd" service."
    It says deatails but all it says is Cannot start.

    any help.
    and also How do u access CPanel through root?

    Hello Dan,

    Httpd is most likely already running and is controlled in WHM not the Virtuozzo control panel.

    You cannot access cPanel as root. You access WHM as root and then create a package. After that you create an account using that package and you can then access that account's cPanel.

    Now I cant access CPanel at all???? and WHM. They come up to Page Load Error
    or PPP!
    I get this error:
    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator, [email protected] and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    ohh and note, I just installed WHMSonic through root.

    Now I would say it's time to put in a support ticket...

    If you have cPanel VPS Power Panel will never show correct status for Apache and some other services and will always display them as "stopped". This is due to the simple fact that Power Panel is trying to query service status using the "service NAME status" command and expects output / exit code as returned by RedHat Ent./CentOS init scripts but in case of cPanel most services gets custom compiled / installed from custom RPMs and they do not provide support for RedHat Ent. like exit codes. In some cases even names for init scripts differ.

    As for inability to reach cPanel - I guess you've enabled "normal" firewall mode in the Power Panel - this configuration is more or less or for Plesk systems only and won't work good with cPanel VPSs. Just go ahead and switch your firewall config to advanced mode with default policy "Accept" to immediate get access to the system.
