Hello guys, I'm seeing this error right after login to WHM: the entire screen is blank and only show this line:

Code:
undef error - queueprocd isn't running? at /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/TaskQueue/Manager.pm line 214.
This happens nearly 2 times a week on only one of the servers.
I just hit F5 in the browser and everything reloads ok.
It happens since upgrade to cPanel 66. Running under CENTOS 7.4 on kvm mode.

Based on what I've readed in other threads, I've run the recommended commands and this is the output:

Code:
[root ~]# /scripts/restartsrv_queueprocd
Waiting for “queueprocd” to restart ………waiting for “queueprocd” to initialize ………finished.

Service Status
        queueprocd (queueprocd - waiting up to 30s to process a task) running as root with PID 32363 (process table check method)

queueprocd restarted successfully.

Now, while writing all this, I've run upcp with force update via WHM UI. I'll follow up here to let you know if this have solved or still an issue.

Best regards
Marcelo

Hello,

Could you open a support ticket using the link in my signature so we can take a closer look and determine what's leading to queueprocd failing to start?

Thank you.

Hi Guys,

CENTOS 7.4 hyper-v
v68.0.12

I have the same error as above, but my output is slightly different...

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# /scripts/restartsrv_queueprocd
Waiting for “queueprocd” to restart ………waiting for “queueprocd” to initialize ………finished.

Service Status
        queueprocd (queueprocd - waiting up to 30s to process a task) is running as root with PID 877 (systemd+/proc check method).

I am also getting upcp errors since the last few weeks... here is the last email I recieved from the server...

Code:
The cPanel & WHM update process failed for the following reason:

Maintenance ended; however, it did not exit cleanly (512). Review the update logs to determine why the update failed.

Any ideas??

Hello,

It looks like this could be related to internal case CPANEL-16593. I'll monitor that case and update this thread with more information on it's status as it becomes available. In the meantime, the following commands should act as a temporary workaround:

Code:
mkdir -p /root/taskqueuebackup/taskqueue
mv -v /var/cpanel/taskqueue/* /root/taskqueuebackup/taskqueue/
/scripts/restartsrv_queueprocd
@warmwhisky, could you open a separate thread for the cPanel update issue so we can take a closer look if that issue persists?

Thank you.

Hi. Yes will do. but just to clarify the error that I have reported today. It is the forth time it's happened. According to my emails and unless I have not deleted any of them, it started on the 9th November. Then on the 12th, 13th and today.

Hello,

To update, an additional case (CPANEL-17413) addresses an issue that can lead to scenarios where the "queueprocd isn't running" error message appears. I'll update this thread once the resolution is published.

Thank you.
