My cPanel won't load or keep logging me out after enabling Cloudflare. cPanel has an option called "Cookie IP Validation". This setting checks that the IP address that the visitor originally came from matches their IP address on subsequent requests. The solution is to access the cPanel server on a URL that doesn't proxy through Cloudflare. Please use cPanel's proxy subdomain and have the DNS point directly to the cPanel server which is a default DNS setting.


We might have noticed some access problem on cPanel if we try to access it from some other network than the regular one. For eg: cPanel might work properly on the office network, but won't if try to access from home network. It does appear to be a firewall issue. Try turning it off temporarily to test, or make an exception for your URL in the Firewall. I also tested it on multiple browsers and it was working. Test it again, and please let us know if you continue to have the same problem.


Some RV themes available in cpanel can use the issue to load properly. Use paper_laltern or x3theme of cpanel.


If you using nameserver of Cloudflare for your domain then your cpanel will not load properly for your domain URL. you can use a temporary URL (Server IP:2082) of the server to login into cpanel.

Login Issues

If you are unable to login to cPanel hosting account, try logging by clearing your browser’s cache or cookies try logging from a different browser.

If you are required to log into your cPanel account via your domain

https://server domain:2083 


https://server domain/cPanel

There are cases where you cannot open the URL or log in with the right username and password. This happens as the DNS changes are not completely resolved all over the Internet. In this case, you can access your cPanel account at https://IPaddress:2083/

Missing Icon

In some case, the image (Icon) which represents each process and the options in cPanel will not be visible.

In such cases, you can resolve it by running the following script



/scripts/upcp –force


You can check if MySQL is running by using the following command

” /etc/init.d/mysql status ”

If running you will get the following command

” mysqld (pid 837) is running… ”

In order to check the database connectivity from command line use

” mysql -u roundcube -p ”

Use” mysql> use roundcube;” for switching to the database

If all tables exist then proceed to repair the database

# mysqlcheck -r roundcube

If database or tables are missing, run the following command

# /usr/local/cpanel/bin/update-roundcube –force


At times, you will have trouble accessing the email present in the Roundcube or other applications. This happens due to the permission issues.

To rectify this, you can run:

/scripts/mailperm username

In certain cases, negative size appears in email account size for some users in cPanel.

To fix the same run

/scripts/generate_maildirsize -confirm cPanelusername 


Quota issues happen to depend on your current disk usage and we can set different quota values for cPanel accounts. To fix the quota issues run the below command as root user.

* vim /etc/fstab
check whether the quota is enabled.
* mount -o remount /home
Then remount the /home partition
create a file ” aquota.user”. To do that we need to run quota check * quotacheck -c /home
* quotaon /home ==>
Enable quota
* edquota <username> ==>
edit the quota of a user
* /scripts/fixquotas ==> This solves the quota issue of cPanel accounts.

* /var/cpanel/cpanel.config

When editing quotacache check if quotacache is set to 0 if so try setting quotacache to 1 and see if that fixes it.
