Safe way to restart MySQL service
As a server admin we need to restart the MySQL server without risk having corrupt tables afterwards and we cannot use the MySQL service restart feature in WHM.
Instead, we use this safe way:
service crond stop service exim stop service httpd stop Type in "2" to check the current MySQL queries and wait for them to be fully processed. Once that is the case, you can run: service mysqld restart After MySQL has been restarted, you need to start the other service as follows: service httpd start service exim start service crond start
Could the above become an icon in the WHM in a future version?
Thank you :-)
