Kill restore process in new cpanel

Kill restore process in new cpanel


In new cpanel/WHM when we try to kill restore process it is still showing in WHM >> restore full backup. Below are the steps to remove that process from WHM.

You can manually mark the transfer as completed using the following instructions:

Ensure the transfer is no longer running by clicking on the “View” option under “Sessions in Progress” for this transfer. In the new window, there will be a line that looks like this:

You may close this window and view the transfer on the command line: /usr/local/cpanel/bin/view_transfer 1071601843quick20141013154952IAZhRro

Access your server via SSH and run that command (the transfer name will be different on your server):

/usr/local/cpanel/bin/view_transfer 1071601843quick20141013154952IAZhRro

As an example, you might see output like this:

Transfer running with pid: paused
[795 ][MASTER ]: Start Session
[795 ][MASTER ]: Version: 1.9

You will note that the master PID for this transfer is xxx. If the process still exists, and the transfer has failed, then you can kill that process:

kill -9 xxx

The next step requires you to change the entry for this transfer in the whmxfer.sessions table in MySQL. Find the entry with the session ID for your migration. In the example we have been using, it’s ‘ 1071601843quick20141013154952IAZhRro .’ It will look like this:

mysql -e “select * from whmxfer.sessions where sessionid=’1071601843quick20141013152137YIVT7Ze'”
| sessionid | initiator | pid | version | target_host | source_host | state | starttime | endtime |
| 1071601843quick20141013152137YIVT7Ze | quickrestore | 21295 | 1.9 | | localhost | 50 | 2014-10-13 08:21:37 | NULL |

You will need to change the ‘state’ field to 100, and change the ‘endtime’ field from NULL to a time after the ‘starttime’ field:

mysql -e “update whmxfer.sessions set state=’100′, endtime=’2014-10-14 09:37:52′ where sessionid=’1071601843quick20141013152137YIVT7Ze'”

If you check it again then you will notice that process ended.

| sessionid | initiator | pid | version | target_host | source_host | state | starttime | endtime |
| 1071601843quick20141013152137YIVT7Ze | quickrestore | 21295 | 1.9 | | localhost | 100 | 2014-10-13 08:21:37 | 2014-10-14 09:37:52 |

The transfer should then no longer appear under “Sessions in Progress.”

You can reconfirm the same by login into WHM.

How to replace MySQL with MariaDB in cpanel

September 30th, 2014 No comments

Backup existing MySQL data

Make sure to save all existing data just in case there are any issues.

cp -Rf /var/lib/mysql /var/lib/mysql-old
mv /etc/my.cnf /etc/my.cnf-old

Disable the targets so cPanel no longer handles MySQL updates

The following will mark the versions of MySQL we distribute as uninstalled so they are no longer maintained by cPanel/WHM

/scripts/update_local_rpm_versions –edit target_settings.MySQL50 uninstalled
/scripts/update_local_rpm_versions –edit target_settings.MySQL51 uninstalled
/scripts/update_local_rpm_versions –edit target_settings.MySQL55 uninstalled

Remove existing MySQL RPM’s so theres a clean slate for MariaDB

The below command will uninstall the MySQL RPM’s!

/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms –fix –targets=MySQL50,MySQL51,MySQL55

Create a yum repository for MariaDB

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB.repo

place the following inside of it depending on the DISTRO (

name = MariaDB
baseurl =

Remove php from the /etc/yum.conf file then run the following commands

yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client MariaDB-devel
/etc/init.d/mysql start
/etc/init.d/mysql restart

Add php back to the /etc/yum.conf file to ensure future php updates don’t get clobbered

Rebuild easyapache/php to ensure modules are intact/working

/scripts/easyapache –build


CVE-2014-7169 BASH Shell Shock Vulnerability for Linux

September 29th, 2014 No comments

What is CVE-2014-7169 / Shell Shock Vulnerability?

GNU Bash through 4.3 bash43-025 processes trailing strings after certain malformed function definitions in the values of environment variables, which allows remote attackers to write to files or possibly have unknown other impact via a crafted environment, as demonstrated by vectors involving the ForceCommand feature in OpenSSH sshd, the mod_cgi and mod_cgid modules in the Apache HTTP Server, scripts executed by unspecified DHCP clients, and other situations in which setting the environment occurs across a privilege boundary from Bash execution.
NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-6271.
In short Shell Shock vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code given certain conditions, by passing strings of code following environment variable assignments.
The Shell Shock vulnerability is considered bigger than Heartbleed as it’s affecting all versions of bash and it’s still unclear from when and adding to that linux bash is not only running on linux webservers but other embedded devices as well such as Mac Laptops

Test your server bash version using below command

bash –version
/bin/bash –version


GNU bash, version 3.2.25(1)-release (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

Check if your server is affected

[email protected][#] env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable’ bash -c “echo this is a test”
bash: warning: x: ignoring function definition attempt
bash: error importing function definition for`x’
this is a test

If you get the above output then you are safe. But,  if you get the below output then you are affected.

[email protected][#] env x='() { :;}; echo vulnerable’ bash -c “echo this is a test”
this is a test

To fix it follow below steps:

For RedHat/CentOS/Fedora/RPM based OS:

Note:: This is a temporary fix released by Red Hat Security Team. The team is still working on a full fix which is expected to release soon.

[email protected][#] yum upgrade bash

For Ubuntu / Debian

apt-get update && sudo apt-get install –only-upgrade bash
