Now you have angel hands for solving your WHM  related (selected) problems. cPanel has introduced Autofix for WHM to automatically solve a number of common problems.

The Autofixer is a collection of scripts that can be run from WHM to fix some common issues not otherwise fixable or accessible from command line.

The collection of autofixer scripts are available on

How to use Autofixer?

You can run an autofixer from https://YOUR_SERVER_IP:2087/scripts2/autofixer. Change the YOUR_SERVER_IP to your server’s IP address.  It will ask you for username and password.

You can also run the autofixer from terminal

/scripts/autorepair scriptname

Change scriptname to actual script name you want to execute. See below for a list!

WHM Autofixer

On the Autofixer window, you have to enter the script name and hit the Submit button. The script will fix the problem it was intended for! cPanel is kind to provide a test script to verify if your autofixer is working fine. This test script won’t change anything indeed! Put test in the box Enter script name and hit Submit button. You will get outputs like the following image.
