    Maybe I'm overlooking the elephant in the living room, but I've been trying to solve this for a couple of hours now.

    Not the most experienced on exim, so I could have missed something major.

    Server status shows exim failed. eximstats runs normally.

    Attempted to restart with no success.

    No apparent messages in /var/log/exim/mainlog - see nothing regarding error.

    Apparently the program has lost its path information.

    Attempting to send from the command line:

    #(virtual5)/scripts ->mail -s "Email test" jstretch@industryinet.com
    This is a test message.
    .
    EOT
    #(virtual5)/scripts ->/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libperl.so" not found, required by "send-mail"

    Ran rebuildeximbsd -
    got the same error - /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libperl.so" not found

    Any suggestions?

    Running on FreeBSD 5.4.

    Attempt to connect via telnet port 25 is refused.

    CPanel does have a "force option" when running the scripts in the /scripts/folder. Try this at the prompt:

    /scripts/eximup --force

    We were having this issue with a customer box. It appears that the problem may have been caused by a Perl upgrade from 5.8.6 to 5.8.8, but I'm not 100% sure. I resolved it by running:

    ln -s /usr/local/cpanel/perl/libperl.so /usr/local/lib/

    Restarted exim, and it worked fine.

    I thought Perl 5.8.7 was the latest supported by cPanel.

    That's right. Perl v5.8.7 is supported by the cPanel. Perl v5.8.8 will work on a cPaenl server, but you might experience technical issues.
