    Manage Cphulk From Command line

    Use the following methods to manage cPHulk on your server:-

    Debug mode

    To enable debug mode for cPHulk, run the following command:-

    touch /var/cpanel/hulkd/debug

    Check cPHulk's status

    You can check cphulk's status from command

    "ps aux | grep -i".

    this will return a result like :-

    1 root 1501 0.0 0.4 34816 5076 ? S 07:58 0:00 cPhulkd - processor

    Restart the cPHulk daemon (cphulkd)

    To restart the cphulkd daemon, perform either of the following actions:

    Perform a soft restart. To do this, run the following command:

    /scripts/restartsrv_cphulkd

    Perform a hard restart and force the system to flush the daemon's memory. To do this, run the following command:

    /scripts/restartsrv_cphulkd --stop; 
    /scripts/restartsrv_cphulkd --start

    Disable cPHulk

    To disable cPHulk via the command line, run the following commands:

    /usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/stopcphulkd
    
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/cphulk_pam_ctl --disable

    To disable cPHulk to keep it offline, even after a restart of cPanel & WHM, remove the cPHulk touch file with the following command:

    rm /var/cpanel/hulkd/enabled

    Log files

    cPHulk stores its logs in the following files: 1 - /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cphulkd.log 2 - /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cphulkd_errors.log

    IP address management

    Add IP addresses to the whitelist

    For example, to add the 192.168.0.20 IP address to the whitelist, run the following command as the root user:

    /scripts/cphulkdwhitelist 192.168.0.20

    Add IP addresses to the blacklist.

    For example, to add the 192.168.0.20 IP address to the blacklist, run the following command as the root user:

    /scripts/cphulkdblacklist 192.168.0.20

    Thanks . Have a nice day.
