Hi there,

I offer email hosted to my customers, by using some dedicated servers and cPanel + MailChannels.

Now, I want to add mail redundancy by setting a secondary MX record.

So I have configured a VPS, with 1 GB of RAM and DNS Only cPanel.

All works fine, I added the PTR to secondary MX record, add the secondary record to all my primary DNS zones, and sync the zones with a script in order to add the domains to /etc/secondarymx.

The problem I have, is at the moment of enable spamassasin.

I tried do it from WHM interface, but I get this error:

The service “spamd” appears to be down.

Raw Output: The subprocess reported error number 69 when it ended.
(XID 2xkrtq) The service “spamd” failed to send the expected response to host “127.0.0.1” and port “783” because of an error: The service did not pass the built-in GTUBE test.

The subprocess “/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_spamd” reported error number 69 when it ended.

Also I tried this:

/scripts/restartsrv_spamd
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/sa-update
/scripts/upcp --force

But nothing, I can't start the service.

Any idea?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Regards,
