ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION

Cpanel::TailWatch::Eximstats appears to have unprocessed SQL in /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql.

When mysql is unable to execute a query they are logged for processing later.

Eventually these SQL files may be handled automatically and this message will not appear.

In the meantime you can execute the queries as root with something like this:

  mv /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql.tmp_working_copy
  /usr/local/cpanel/libexec/tailwatchd --restart
  mysql eximstats < /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql.tmp_working_copy

Once you are sure all is well you can remove /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql.tmp_working_copy

Your system kernel may have been updated.
This would have occurred in an attempt to install gcc, which is required.
Before rebooting the system, please ensure that the installed kernel version is compatible with your deployment.
How I can solve that because whm does not work ?

Hello,

Please check your firewall as the above does not indicate any real issues with cPanel installation:

Code:
/sbin/iptables -n -L
It's likely you have the WHM, cPanel and Webmail ports blocked on your default RedHat Firewall. You could simply run these commands to open the necessary ports:

Code:
/sbin/iptables -I RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 2082:2083 -j ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -I RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 2086:2087 -j ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -I RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 2095:2096 -j ACCEPT
This is in the instance you have RH-Firewall-1-INPUT showing in your firewall rule chains. Otherwise, you could replace the RH-Firewall-1-INPUT part with just INPUT like so:

Code:
/sbin/iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 2082:2083 -j ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 2086:2087 -j ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 2095:2096 -j ACCEPT
The default RedHat firewall typically only allows ports 25, 80 and 110 I believe. The rejection line that is blocking all the other ports is the following:

Code:
REJECT all -- 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 reject-with icmp-host-prohibited
If you see that in your firewall, that rule is why other ports won't work and why the above firewall rules are needing to be added to allow WHM, cPanel and Webmail access to function.
