    What's weird is that even though my site was down, cPanel WHM was up!? I was able to login and check my email via the dal hostname.

    Weird indeed. Here is why! :D BTW, it appears the datacenter was 12 hours off in their time estimate. F'ing mess, and their management has already gotten an earful from me.

    In any event, whatever network maintenance the datacenter accomplished, it also managed to corrupt Litespeed. Likely a ton of odd packets. With Litespeed corrupt, the installation fell back to Apache, which is by design. That is why WHM was still running, while some websites were down.

    Any website that relied on Litespeed and programmed for Litespeed remained down, websites that worked fine with Apache were up. Everything is now up, running on Litespeed, and acting appropriately.

    Thank you @Find Dank for noting your site wasn't working. It saved quite a lot of troubleshooting. The error on your site immediately gave it away.

    Sorry for the downtime all.

    I'm going to show this maintenance as completed. If you are having any website issues, please open a separate ticket.
