    For some reason I keep receiving 'cpsrvd failed' emails and customers are finding it hard to login.

    Any suggestions on how I could investigate the problem?

    Thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    The first place to check would be the cpanel error log in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log

    I logged into SSH then input the command 'pico /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log'. I tried to view the file but nothing displayed so I then copied the file into one of my websites so it was downloadable via FTP but again I failed.

    Am I doing this completely wrong? Is there another way?

    This issue has been covered in many threads in the past: http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=55021

    Do you mean that the log file /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log is blank/empty/nothing in it?

    One thing comes to mind about cpservd is to increase the max memory that cPanel can use; Login to WHM >> Tweak Settings, scroll down and find "The maximum memory a cPanel process can use before it is killed off". Increase the memory there and see if that helps.

    You can seek professional help either from your host or a third-party, if you are unable to solve this problem yourself.
