I have had this occur twice now(about a week apart) and I am not sure on what to do on this one.

I restart exim and spamd is fine again.

Here is the error it gives when it fails.

spamd failed @ Wed Mar 28 07:33:33 2012. A restart was attempted automagically.

Service Check Method: [check command]

Number of Restart Attempts: 1

Cmd Service Check Raw Output: Spamd is not running Raw Output:


Startup Log: Mar 27 03:12:14.096 [29367] warn: server socket setup failed, retry 1: spamd: could not create INET socket on 127.0.0.1:783: Address already in use Mar 27 03:12:17.780 [29367] warn: Argument "" isn't numeric in addition (+) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/Mail/SpamAssassin/NetSet.pm line 122.

Any ideas on this one?

Next time this occurs, rather than restarting it immediately, could you run the following command?

Code:
netstat -lpn | grep 783

Please submit a ticket. If the response in the logs is "spamd: could not create INET socket on 127.0.0.1:783: Address already in use" then something should have been listening on that port (783). Wait to submit the ticket when this occurs, then please do not restart the service but allow us to troubleshoot the issue. You can submit a ticket using WHM > Support Center > Contact cPanel or using the link in my signature. Thanks!
