I'm using Debain GNU/Linux 3.0 with CPanel. CPanel start script looks very strange. This is head of the script. Lines starting with "--->>>" are my comments.
# cat /etc/init.d/cpanel |head -n 40
# cpanel8 Start Cpanel Services
# Author: cPanel, Inc. <firstname.lastname@example.org>
# chkconfig: 345 95 10
# description: This is the cpanel webserver and chat.
# processname: cpaneld
# pidfile: /var/run/cpanel.pid
# Source function library.
--->>> This is a part of Red Hat directory structure. Debian GNU/Linux have no /etc/rc.d directory
[ -f /usr/local/cpanel/etc/init/startup ] || exit 0
# See how we were called.
case "$1" in
if [ -f "/var/cpanel/smtpgidonlytweak" ]; then
echo -n "Starting SMTP Tweak: "
--->>> What is this command daemon? I can't find it in my $PATH. Is this cpanel server command or RedHat specific ?
daemon /scripts/smtpmailgidonly on
echo -n "Starting eximstats: "
echo -n "Starting cPanel services: "
echo -n "Starting cPanel Log services: "
echo -n "Starting pop3 services: "
if [ ! -e "/etc/cppopdisable" ]; then
Is there any patches released for this problem? I'm debugging this problems now, but I find many others ;-)
What's default BIND version of CPanel. I have installed bind 8 and bind 9.
