Bandwidth Limit Exceeded Error Solution.

To get the site working again:

1) Log into WHM.

2) Click the "Limit Bandwidth Usage" link. Select the domain or account username for the account that is over its bandwidth limit. Click the "Limit" button. Raise their bandwidth limit and click "Change".
Click on "upgrade/downgrade account" link and upgrade Bandwidth exceed account to higher package.

Note1: Upgrade/downgrade account does not takes care of the bandwidth error instantly. After you upgrade your domain to higher bandwidth package from your reseller WHM you will still have to do "Limit Bandwidth Usage" for changes to take affect instantly.

Note2: Always create accounts with reasonable bandwidths to avoid this kind of error. Do not put "unlimited" in any package fields like Max Emails, DB's and FTP. You need to put numerical values 999 or 9999 instead of "unlimited"
