    Friendly Moderator Note: I moved your questions to their own thread, since they addressed a slightly different issue from that in the original thread to which you replied.

    There is no init script in /etc/rc.d/init.d for spamd on a cPanel server, so "service" will not work for restarting spamd. ("service" is an alias for /etc/rc.d/init.d, and it should not be assumed to exist on all servers, so it is best to use /etc/rc.d/init.d/servicename instead.)

    Instead of trying to use an init script, use /scripts/restartsrv_spamd, which is provided by cPanel:

    Code:
    # /scripts/restartsrv_spamd
    #
    After running this command, check to see if SpamAssassin is running:

    Code:
    # ps aux|grep spamd
    # ps aux|grep spamd
    root     23347 16.7  2.8  31552 29060 ?        Ss   08:29   0:02 /usr/bin/spamd -d --allowed-ips=127.0.0.1 --pidfile=/var/run/spamd.pid --max-children=5
    root     23348  0.0  2.7  31552 27800 ?        S    08:29   0:00 spamd child
    root     23349  0.0  2.7  31552 27780 ?        S    08:29   0:00 spamd child
    root     23378  0.0  0.0   3924   660 pts/0    R+   08:30   0:00 grep spamd
    spamd logs to /var/log/maillog. Any error messages generated by spamd will be written to this log. You should see something similar to the following in /var/log/maillog after running /scripts/restartsrv_spamd:

    Code:
    May  6 08:27:56 seagull spamd[23273]: spamd: server started on port 783/tcp (running version 3.2.4) 
    May  6 08:27:56 seagull spamd[23273]: spamd: server pid: 23273 
    May  6 08:27:56 seagull spamd[23273]: spamd: server successfully spawned child process, pid 23282 
    May  6 08:27:56 seagull spamd[23273]: spamd: server successfully spawned child process, pid 23283 
    If spamd is not running (if no processes are listed by the ps aux|grep spamd commands), please submit a ticket so that we may log into your server and investigate the problem directly and fix it for you.

    Spamassasin runs subordinate to exim these days so you can usually restart spamassassin by simply restarting your exim server.

    However, a few things for you to look at though ....
    Code:
    # service exim restart
    # /scripts/restartsrv_spamd
    # chkconfig --list spamd
    # ps aux | grep spamd
