    after a power failure I get this:

    service dovecot status

    Started Dovecot Imap Server.
    Starting Dovecot Imap Server...
    Failed at step EXEC spawning /usr/sbin/dovecot: Exec format error
    dovecot.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=203/EXEC
    Unit dovecot.service entered failed state.
    dovecot.service failed.

    any ideas? or how to reinstall dovecot?

    thanks

    Hello,

    You could try removing the RPM and reinstalling it via the following commands:

    Code:
    rpm -e --nodeps dovecot-2.2.26.0-2.cp1158.x86_64
    /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix
    Thank you.
