Domain redirecting to /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi in cPanel

This situation can happen whether you are working with Apache MPM_Worker and the reason is that when adding new domain there are workers up with the updated httpd.conf file and there workers remain with the older httpd.conf file so if a worker that not updated returns the respones it will be redirecting to cpanel default web page as the domain is configured on the server.

The immediate solution is to stop the Apache kill all its processes and start it again:

httpd -k graceful-stop
killall httpd
httpd -k start

The permanent solution is to reinstall Apache, This can be done easily by migration to EA4:
