root 25755 0.0 1.3 12664 7072 pts/0 S 04:31 0:00 cpsrvd - waiting for connections
root 30218 0.0 0.1 3012 724 pts/0 S+ 04:37 0:00 grep cpsrvd
If cpsrvd is running on the server then Iptables must be blocking the port cpanel currently running on and hence we need to disable the Default firewall of the Linux i.e., iptables.
But it is strongly recommended that firewall like CSF should be installed on the server to block "Failed Login Attempts".
Follow below steps :
If still the issue persist, edit the cpanel demon file :
[email protected][#]vi /etc/init.d/cpanel change
change "status cpsrvd" to "status cpsrvd-ssl" and save the changes.
This will resolve the issue.
