Hello;

I'm trying out Cpanel, and so far everything is looking great. I'm running on Centos 64bit with CloudLinux. The few little glitches I've had, I've been able to easily find answers for here in the forum.

I just got an error when saving in the Service Manager, and I can't find anything that addresses it.

Waiting for rsyslogd to restart...............................................................finished. rsyslogd has failed, please contact the sysadmin (result was "rsyslog is not running").

Rsyslogd and syslogd and both enabled, and for syslogd, monitor is checked also.

I ran /scripts/restartsrv_rsyslogd and it replied: Shut down sysklogd before you run rsyslog.

Should I disable one of these or are they both suppose to be running, if they are both suppose to be running, can you steer me in the right direction for fixing this.

Thank You

Jamie

You cannot run two logging daemons simultaneously. You need choose which you want: syslogd, or rsyslogd. In Service Manager only enable one of the daemons (services).
