A client recently asked how to check the status of cphulk via the command line… This got me thinking; beside actually logging into WHM to check “Home »Security Center »cPHulk Brute Force Protection” to see whether cPHulk is currently Disabled/Enabled, I was unaware of a way to do this. After a little digging, I was able to find

/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_cphulkd --status

Which gives the current status of cPHulk from the command line

cphulkd is disabled

and scene.
