    Here is a solution if you ever get the error message below.

    It might be related to me upgrading mysql from 4.0 to 4.1.

    When restarting cpanel it gives.
    Starting eximstats: DBI connect('eximstats:localhost','eximstats',...) failed: Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 264 Can't Connect at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 267.

    This is probably due to mysql being upgraded by still using the old version of the DBI and DBD::mysql perl modules.

    cpan> get DBD::mysql
    (This should download the DBD module
    cpan> quit
    $ cd /home/.cpan/build or cd /root/.cpan/build
    $ cd DBD-mysql-3.0002
    $ perl Makefile.PL
    $ make && make install
    Now try restart cpanel ( /etc/init.d/cpanel restart )

    No more eximstats error :)
    Hope this can help someone :)
