    Hi,

    Some time back, I screwed up exim on my server.
    Then I tried one of the scripts (exim4-rh73test or exim4, forgot which one) and it worked fine again.
    This added the exiscan-acl extensions too, which is what I wanted to do in the first place.

    However, cPanel server status shows exim as failed:

    exim (exim-4.34-0_cpanel_stmpcontrol_antivirus_rewrite_mailman2_mailtrap_exiscan) Failed

    Mails are all going through fine, though.
    Should I be worried ?

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe .. any failure in our system is our failure..
    It is an exim database connectivity problem. Get the password from /var/cpanel/eximstatspass and update it by logging into the mysql as root and updating it for the eximstats database.

    Restart exim

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.
    I did what you mentioned - Got the password in /var/cpanel/eximstatspass, changed the eximstats mySQL DB password to that and restarted exim.
    However, it's still showing failed.

    Thanks,
    Ankur

    Exim Fail Problem

    Iam getting a ton of emails saying exim has failed and a automatic restart was attempted.

    Mail seems to be working, I have read some post and i checked /var/cpanel/eximstatspass and changed the password in the database.

    I also then ran service chkservd restart and still show faild.


    Any help would be great.

    Thanks
