I would like to run the below command as cron in my server

exim -bp|grep frozen|awk '{print $3}' |xargs exim -Mrm > /dev/null 2>&1

But when i run this command as cron 5 min once it it gives the below error

exim: error while loading shared libraries: libperl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


but if it run it normally in terminal it was working

How to fix this ?

I'm facing this issue only after cP update

Try to use full paths to the programs, i.e. /sbin/exim, /bin/grep, /bin/awk

Hey there! It seems like the issue is specifically with the "exim" command - can you restart the Exim service on the machine from the command line? If so, does that also give you the same error?

I would try running this command to make sure that all cPanel tools related to Exim are properly installed:

Code:
/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms
Can you try that and see if that resolves the issue?

It sounds like there might be a larger issue with Perl on the machine. If you'd like to open a ticket we could investigate that directly on the machine for you.
If you can share the commands i can do it

Opening ticket i need to inform my Sr and they need to do it but they are not available because of weekend
