cPanel not showing number of mailing lists?

I am running on a VPS.

On the stats column, it says 'Mailing Lists: /10'. Why doesn't it say the number of lists I have? I have tried to update any quotas, and I do have second level quotas enabled. Everything else works.

When you log into that account's cPanel, tail the cPanel error log in root SSH:

tail -fn0 /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log
Please post any errors you encounter here.

I did also want to mention a better way to check the log for your set entries. This is under the idea your SSH connection IP matches your browsing IP. The command is a lot longer, but it's good because it ensures you are only getting new entries matching your IP. This command can be used for any log file you are checking, simply change the path to /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log to the path of the file you want to check. Here's that command:

for i in `echo $SSH_CLIENT | awk {'print $1'}` ;do tail -fn0 /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log | grep $i ;done
You can see what echo $SSH_CLIENT | awk {'print $1'} would do if you issue just that command directly. It checks printenv for SSH_CLIENT variable (variables are proceeded by a $), then it uses awk to only print the first variable in SSH_CLIENT, which is your SSH session IP.
