Anybody else seen this???

When I try to restart exim via whm web interface, or via the /scripts/rstartsrv_exim script, the only service that comes up is eximstats.

<<<<<<<<<
[[email protected] ~]# /scripts/restartsrv_exim
Starting eximstats: WARNING: initlog is deprecated and will be removed in a future release

[ OK ]

root 18975 0.0 0.0 4760 644 pts/1 R+ 08:17 0:00 grep exim
>>>>>>>>>


But when I restart exim via the init.d scripts, it starts fine...

<<<<<<<<
[[email protected] ~]# /etc/init.d/exim restart

>>>>>>>>


The same result when I restart exim via the whm control panel....

Anybody have an idea of what's going on? I've tried tracing the restartsrv_exim script to figure out the difference between it and the init.d script, but I'm getting lost.

Any help would be appreciated!

Troy, Mo
Try /scripts/eximup -f
That should take care of it, but watch for any errors and if it don't fix it check /var/logs/ for the exim panic log and the exim main log.
