Use the following procedure to turn off monitoring for a service.
It may be desirable to temporarily turn off monitoring to prevent cPanel from automatically restarting a service when the service is detected as down. One example would be if you need to turn the MySQL service off for maintenance and you do not want cPanel to restart MySQL during the maintenance.
- Login to WHM as the root user
- Navigate to: Home »Service Configuration »Service Manager
- Under the "Monitor" column remove the checkmark for the service that you would like to suspend monitoring for
