same here

I'm having the _exact_ same errors after an auto-update from CPanel. I've turned auto-updates off to prevent this from happening again, but what can be done to resolve this issue now?

I have _zero_ mail functionality for any of my domains, and the RPM database is down too.

short-term resolution!

Kiwiroll,

I found a resolution to this issue. Since the /etc/exim.pl file was lost in the upgrade (as well as many other things) I was able to restore the file from an off-site backup just before the upgrade. The file contents are too large to be displayed in this post, so you can download them from https://web.puryear-it.com/~rgilkey/exim.pl.

Then just run a "service exim restart" and your mail will flow again.

Ronnie

These errors must be fixed, your RPM database is corrupt. The information at the following link will help you resolve these errors. Once resolved, you should be able to re-install the exim RPM.

resolved for me

cpanelkenneth,

Thanks for the quick link on rebuilding the RPM database. We're running on CentOS so all we had to do was reboot the server (rc.sysinit cleared the RPM database locks).

After that I just did a /scripts/cpup --force and everything is back to normal. :D

WHM > Service Status > exim (exim-4.68-1_cpanel_maildir)

and

/scripts/eximup --force --verbose → OK

/etc/exim.pl → It exists.


The error was solved. :)

RE: How does this happen?

I just had similar issues. The above notes fixed it for me. I had stale locks on the RPM database and exim.pl had vanished on my system.

Did upcp cause this?

Thanks god I have a sister machine to this that had the exim.pl file, otherwise I'd of been hosed.

Taking snapshots now!!
