There was a variety of detailed information provided in the opening post of this thread; please clarify by providing -- from your server -- the exact log messages and details describing the symptoms. Please also provide your full cPanel version and build number.

Please do not cross-post the same inquiry in different threads; this makes it difficult to assist and properly track which information is related to a specific inquiry. I will address your tailwatchd issue within the separate thread that you created earlier: cPanel cannot start and Error TailWatch - cPanel Forums

thanks all.
I see "cpsrvd dead but pid file exists" but it is not clear what other difficulty you are experiencing. The log information provided is nearly a year old (from September of 2009) and unless your server's date is set incorrectly the log detail does not appear useful.

Please provide the exact output that you see when restarting cPanel.

To restart cPanel, please use the following command:
Code:
# /usr/local/cpanel/startup
