Hello. I need to disable cpanellogd. I host just my websites on my server, so I really don't need cpanellogd running. It's is crashing my server...

I already changed the configurations on the Statistics Software Configuration page , but it continues to run. The worst of this, is that it usually run during the rush time, and then the server go down.

I checked all the options on the page where it says (Check all hours that you would like log analysis NOT to be performed.).

Please, Someone, help me, to disable this. It's a **** for me. I don't need it...

Hello,

If you create the following file, it should disable cpanellogd:

Code:
touch /etc/cpanellogddisable
After disabling cpanellogd, then you'll want to kill any current processes:

Code:
ps aux | grep cpanellogd
kill -9 PID#
Above please replace PID# with the PID number for the process running for cpanellogd.

Additionally, to ensure cPanel restart does not start cpanellogd (I tested and even with the /etc/cpanellogddisable file, cPanel restart still tries to restart the process), you would want to move the following files:

Code:
mv /usr/local/cpanel/cpanellogd /usr/local/cpanel/cpanellogd.bak
mv /usr/local/cpanel/libexec/cpanellogd /usr/local/cpanel/libexec/cpanellogd.bak
After doing the above steps, cpanellogd should no longer run on your machine.

Thanks.

Hi,
I have followed the above procedure.
However, I am getting these messages every five minutes :
------------------

cpanellogd failed @ Wed Jun 1 09:33:20 2011. A restart was attempted automagically.

Service Check Method: [check command]

Cmd Service Check Raw Output: cpanellogd is not running
---------------

Can you please help me fix the issue.

Thank you
