    Hi,

    I am also facing same issue, though I don't have any real accounts on the server yet and I just got it 4 days back, but I guess after the update my inbox was filled today with cphulkd crashing and recovering:
    Code:

    Hi there,
    I am experiencing the very same problem in some of my servers. I also tried soft and hard service restart from command line (see docs), but still no luck.

    cPHulkd is down for me as well. Getting an odd error when I attempt to reboot the damon |
    The system did not expect the .exe file for the 'cphulkd' service's PID file '/var/run/cphulkd_processor.pid'. The system will not kill the PID: /usr/local/cpanel/libexec/cphulkd-dormant at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/ServiceManager/Manager/Initd.pm line 174, <$fh> line 1.

    This started after the update to WHM 54, Build 20. No command line attempts to restart are successful. This is the error I find in the log for cphuld at /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cphulkd_errors.log

    Code:
    [2016-03-22 08:19:08 -0400] warn [cphulkd] 4412 Hulkd processor is already running [PID 4356] at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/Hulkd.pm line 429.

    Hello :)

    Internal case CPANEL-5023 is open to address an issue where cphulkd continuously restarts after updating to cPanel version 54.0.20. Our developers have determined the cause of the issue, and made changes to correct it. A new build of cPanel that addresses this issue should be released soon, but I have no specific time frame to provide right now. I'll update this thread as soon the new build is published. In the meantime, the temporary workaround is to disable "cphulkd" from the "Dormant services" option under the "Software" tab in "WHM >> Tweak Settings".

    Thank you.

    cPanel 54 is going to be release for stable build in couple of days. I hope it should be sorted out before that otherwise
    it will create security threat on shared servers. Disabling cphulk on shared servers will invite spammers and hackers.

    Disabling "cphulkd" from the the "Dormant services" option will not disable cPHulk, but instead it disables the dormant service functionality for cPhulk. Here's a snippet from our documentation that explains the dormant service feature:

    Thus, the temporary workaround will allow cPhulk to continue to function.

    Thank you.

    Good to hear it was located and addressed. looking forward to the update.
    Will try the workaround for now and see if that helps keep it up.

    New builds have been published to the affected build tiers to address this issue:

    Fixed case CPANEL-5023: Fix redaemonization of cphulk when resuming from dormant mode.

    You can update cPanel via the "/scripts/upcp" command or wait for cPanel to update automatically if you have configured automatic updates. Remember to adjust any settings changed to manually workaround the issue back to their original values.

    Thank you.
