    Hello,

    In WHM services status, exim is failed and as a result, I'm getting these error emails to my root email. However, the emailing in my server is fine: I can send and receive emails without any problems.

    So, how to solve this problem?

    I tried to restart the chkservd... nothing changed.

    In the log I found:
    DBI connect('eximstats:localhost','eximstats',...) failed: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL cli$
    Can't Connect at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 267.

    Ah, well, that's a problem with eximstats not with exim. Eximstats is what produces the WHM > View Relayers, etc, information and isn't related to mail delivery itself. To check that that is running, try:

    /scripts/restartsrv_eximstats

    If you get similar errors to the chksrvd log then you could try running a repair against the eximstats MySQL database.

    I got this:

    DBI connect('eximstats:localhost','eximstats',...) failed: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 264
    Can't Connect at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 267.


    Which is the same error.

    How to repair against the eximstats MySQL database?

    I did "Repair a Database" in WHM, but the problem still there!

    Thanks chirpy, I appreciate your help!

    I found a way to fix it somewhere:
    Code:
    /scripts/realperlinstaller --force DBD::mysql 
    /scripts/restartsrv_eximstats 
    The error gone when /scripts/restartsrv_eximstats , but the the eximstats still in "red" (Service Status).
