Hi Guys,

I am wondering what the deal is with this message during startup, I am testing an upgrade from 11.32 to 11.36 on a test machine and noticed this error during start:

[email protected] [/usr/bin]# service cpanel start
Starting cPanel services: Waiting for cpsrvd,cpsrvd-ssl,whostmgrd,cpaneld,webmaild to shutdown ... not running.

[ OK ]
Starting cPanel Log services: ==> cPanel Log Daemon version 25.0

Starting mailman services: [ OK ]

I did a tail -f on /var/log/secure and saw this:

May 21 11:40:41 cpaneltesting stunnel: LOG3[6621:3077601072]: bind: Address already in use (98)
Interesting thing is, the cPanel service appears to be working fine, all services are running.

Is it safe to ignore this issue?

Hello :)

Yes, this is explained on the following thread:

Stunnel Fails

You can verify that cpsrvd is bound to the standard ports with a command such as:

Code:
# netstat -nap | grep cpsrvd
You will only see "OK" for "stunnel" if Native SSL fails and "stunnel" is used as a fallback to ensure SSL functionality is not lost.

Thank you.
