Hi,

I've been in charge of a CentOS VPS with WHM and cPanel for nearly two years now, and it has mostly run fine without any issues.

Today, however, I received this email:

Server: server.xxxxx.xxx
Primary IP Address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Service Name: cpanel-dovecot-solr
Service Status: failed
Notification: The service “cpanel-dovecot-solr” appears to be down.
Service Check Method: The system’s command to check or to restart this service failed.
Number of Restart Attempts: 1
Startup Log: No startup log

(It goes on, tell me if there is more information needed)
Is this something I need to worry about?
If so, what is the recommended way of dealing with it?

Please have mercy if there is something wrong with my post, I'm new to this forum :)

cpanel-dovecot-solr is a new service that cPanel recently introduced for indexing and searching mail.

I have seen quite a few mentions of it being unstable, I personally haven't experienced that and you can try and restart it with the command
Code:
/etc/init.d/cpanel-dovecot-solr restart
It probably wont change your life if you don't have it, it flatly refused to make me coffee, got grumpy when I mentioned laundry and threatened strike action when I suggested sweeping the floor - so lots of things it just wont do .... what it does do, and extremely well, is index users mailbox files for search. If you want to give your users a treat, see if you can get it to start

Hello,

Do you continue to receive those notifications, or was it a single failure? You can try restarting the service using the command in the previous response to verify if it's responding well.

Thank you.
