  • cpsrvd dead but pid file exists

    Hello,

    ERROR:
    # service cpanel status
    cpsrvd dead but pid file exists
    entropychat (pid 7397) is running...
    melange is stopped
    stunnel (pid 7523) is running...
    interchange is stopped
    qrunner is stopped


    SOLUTION:

    please check whether "cpsrvd" is running or not, using following command.

    # ps aux|grep cpsrvd
    root 25755 0.0 1.3 12664 7072 pts/0 S 04:31 0:00 cpsrvd - waiting for connections
    root 30218 0.0 0.1 3012 724 pts/0 S+ 04:37 0:00 grep cpsrvd
    If cpsrvd is running on the server then Iptables must be blocking the port cpanel currently running on and hence we need to disable the Default firewall of the Linux i.e., iptables.
    But it is strongly recommended that firewall like CSF should be installed on the server to block "Failed Login Attempts".

    Follow these steps :

    # service iptables stop
    # /usr/local/cpanel/cpsrvd
    # service cpanel restart
    # service cpanel status
    If still the issue persist, edit the cpanel demon file :

    #vi /etc/init.d/cpanel change

    change "status cpsrvd" to "status cpsrvd-ssl" and save the changes !!

    # service cpanel restart
    # service cpanel status
    This will resolve the issue.
