    I am trying to upgrade exim using /scripts/eximup - it failed upgrading during the normal cpanel upgrade and it also fails when trying to run the above mentioned script. I have done a forum search and have found others mentioning the same error, but can't find any solution.

    This is the error:

    Running post install scripts for exim....Done

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have tried running that command but still come up with exactly the same error.

    ** Command failed [exit code 1]: /bin/sh -c "make >>/tmp/portupgrade94350.0 2>&1"
    ** Fix the problem and try again.


    Some more information - I am running FreeBSD 5.3 and am on the Current Upgrade tree for CPanel (currently running 10.8.1-C112). I have tried running upcp and sysup as well. Still exim wont upgrade.

    Any other ideas?

    Many Thanks
    Paul

    Solution

    OK - I found the solution

    I manually ran make on the exim port (remember this is a FreeBSD thing) and it gave a verbose output of the compilation procedure and halted saying that there was an error trying to upgrade openssl. It seems that the new exim needs the latest version of openssl.

    I manually ran portupgrade to upgrade to the latest version of openssl then ran /scripts/eximup and it worked!

    Hopefully this will help someone in the future. :)

    Are you running FreeBSD? If so, have you upgraded the ports?

    Does that mean that you have ran /scripts/eximup with --force coz running it without force will not upgrade to latest.

    Exim v 4.52 is the latest installed with cPanel. So, cPanel wise, you're up to date.

    Is cPanel compatible with later versions of Exim, like 4.63

    So, 4.52 is the latest Exim release with respect to cPanel ... but will cPanel work fine with a later install of Exim?

    For example, if I want to upgrade to a later release that has DomainKeys support, will this break cPanel?

    Yes. You would have to grab the exim source rpm from the cPanel servers and patch the source code and then install that.

    sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but did anyone get anywhere doing this?
