Hi
I have tried getting support from the reseller 'buycpanel' but was told this is not a cPanel related issue....

This server has been running fine for along time, in the last few day I have been getting emails as follows:
-----------------------
Server: server1.xxxxxxxxxxxx.com
Primary IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Service: sshd
Notification Type: failed
Notification: sshd failed @ Sat May 11 08:37:47 2013. A restart was attempted automagically.
Service Check Method: [socket connect]
Reason:
Unable to connect to unix socket config-file: No such file or directory: Died at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/TailWatch/ChkServd.pm line 800.
Number of Restart Attempts: 99
Startup Log:
Starting sshd: [ OK ]
Syslog Messages:
May 11 08:32:47 server1 sshd[11373]: Server listening on 0.0.0.0 port 55069.

-----------------------

I set the port to 55069 when the server was built.

Any ideas what is going on here?

Thanks
Rob

What is your cPanel & WHM version number?

If it is 11.38, please ensure you are running the latest build of 11.38 (11.38.0.7 at time of writing). Early builds of 11.38 had some deficiencies in the SSHD check.

Add both your external IP address and 127.0.0.1 to the listen list in sshd_config and restart sshd
Code:
ListenAddress 123.123.123.123
ListenAddress 127.0.0.1
