    Hello,

    Just updated to the latest version (edge) on all my servers. My Redhat 9 server updates perfectly. My redhat 7.3 servers are showing a red flashing dot next to EXIMSTATS in 'server status'. My 'view relayers' and 'View Mail Stats' Works fine. I am not getting the database errors everyone else is referring to. I will continue to receive email about EMIMSTATS being automagically restarted.

    Now, if I go to ssh, and manually restart cpanel.

    service cpanel stop
    service cpanel start

    The red dot will then go away, and the "automagically" emails will stop. Not a huge deal, just a little annoying.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Tim

    well, that along with a few other services once you update(cpanel restarts), stay red for a good while along with a few mails about restarting the services happen to me each time. So far, its only stayed red for up to 15 minutes, usually around 3 minutes for me.

    I have the same problem with Apache and BIND on redhat 7.3. But after 3-5 minutes it comes to a normal state.

    Yeah, I understand it can take some time to become normal status.. Usually about 10 minutes or so. But..
    We have let it go for over an hour, and stayed red the entire time. Also, during that hour, we receive "service is being automagically restarted" emails every ten minutes.

    I have:

    exim-26 failed
    Urchin failed
    Urchin-Scheduler failed


    Which has been red for almost 30 minutes now after upgrading to release.

    ok.. looking closer, when my servers re-boot, eximstats is green for a few seconds. THEN goes red (and stays red, until cpanel is restarted from ssh)

    I'm testing on a server on our private net so it's not a huge issue, but I would like to find out why it's staying red. I do get the following errors when I restart cpanel via ssh as suggested above:

    root@warbird [/etc]# service cpanel start
    Starting eximstats: DBI connect('eximstats:localhost','eximstats',...) failed: Access denied for user: 'eximstats@localhost' (Using password: YES) at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 258
    Can't Connect at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 261.
    [FAILED]

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Same here..

    Upgraded to latest edge and eximstats refuses to start.

    "Can't locate DBD/mysql.pm in @INC"

    looks like perl module

    Same thing here:

    Starting eximstats: DBI connect('eximstats:localhost','eximstats',...) failed: Access denied for user: 'eximstats@localhost' (Using password: YES) at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 258
    Can't Connect at /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats line 261.
    [FAILED]

    It appears as if user eximstats is attempting to connect to mysql. However, no such user seems to exist?

    I have same error showing up, but my path @INC is missing the file because it is looking here /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux

    and the file is in /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i686-linux

    I was just going to try and copy it and see what happens, but I'd like to hear if there's a more correct way to fix this.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    I tried symbolic links, but that didn't work either.

    I ended up installing the perl modules manually from a command prompt.

    Bundle::DBD::mysql
    which needed

    MIME::Base64
    Digest::MD5
    MD5
    Digest::base

    pain in the !@#!@ but it's working now without errors. I had to do trial and error running this from the command line to make sure everything was OK.

    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/eximstats
