Hello, I have started to use the new AutoSSL feature which has been working fine until I tried to run it manually and got the following error:

API failure: (XID pru3pt) The command is already running with the process ID: 67875

There is no process ID of 67875 running on the server and even after a restart I am getting the same error.

Is there a PID file that I need to clear?

What is your exact issue?
There is no process like this running... I have rebooted the server twice but still same error... and the log is not closing... seems in limbo... is there any manual way to clear the log and rerun the script...?

PS: I had killed the process because it started generating SSL for all my domains... which I did not want... and its been like this for the last 4 hours...

Hello,

Internal case CPANEL-8820 will address this issue in cPanel version 60 by suppressing the stack trace for the “CommandAlreadyRunning” exception error message. It will simply output:

"The command is already running with the process ID: 123456".
60 Change Log - Change Logs - cPanel Documentation

Fixed case CPANEL-8820: Make CommandAlreadyRunning exceptions not print stack trace usually.

Thank you.
