    I have changed update config to stable dan ran /scripts/upcp --force.
    Now I have 10.9.0-STABLE_45, but still have no luck :(

    # service cpanel status
    cpsrvd dead but pid file exists <-------------------
    entropychat (pid 17821) is running...
    melange is stopped
    stunnel (pid 18964) is running...
    interchange is stopped
    qrunner is stopped

    I also receive this more frequent :
    "cpsrvd failed @ Wed Oct 11 10:55:51 2006. A restart was attempted automagicly".

    How to fix this problem?

    I hope someone knows how to fix this. I have worked on a few servers, that I cannot fix this error on.

    The file still shows the same, but I am able to access my site now.

    Seems that an over zealous admin decided that we need to block the ports to WHM and cPanel.

    Time to go cower before they find out it was me.

    I believe it is something to do with the port cpanel is currently running on. Say you login using http://IPADDR:2082
    the cpsrvd status should show running and not dead but pid file exists.
    but if one uses https://IPADDR:2083
    it will show cpsrvd is dead but pid file exists.
    So
    vi /etc/init.d/cpanel that is if you are using port 2083
    (/status ) - find status cpsvrd and change it to status cpsrvd-ssl.

    Hope that info is already known if it aint then now you know.
