On two of our freebsd 6.2 boxes after running WHM "uprade to latest" and it installing 11.18.3-CURRENT_23567 we found "stunnel" using up to 70% of cpu and spewing errors about reading /etc/hosts.allow

We had to kill it and restart is with 'stopstunnel' & 'startstunnel', however when we booted one of the boxes we noticed that stunnel now did not come up on its own and had to be "startstunnel" to get it going.

Anyone else see this problem ?

After doing a /scripts/upcp --force to fix an IMAP login issue, I am now unable to access WHM or CPANEL on any of the domains. I use version 11.13.3-RELEASE. No error messages in log files, but I do get a cpsrvd failed email every few minutes....

stunnel should only start as a fallback (unless you have it enabled) when native ssl support fails to install. Please open a ticket to my attention so we can determine why the native ssl installer is failing on your machine.

Ok, will do. We have nativessl ticked in the tweak settings. I was babysitting the boxes and just now one of them went nuts after the upcp at 1:45am, even though its set to 'manual update' for everything it still tried to do something and stunnel began to eat the cpu. I'll open a ticket in the AM. thanks.

I take it back, both boxes did the same thing. The other one did it at 2:10am (the time of its upcp cycle). :eek:

The Net::SSLeay install script has been updated in EDGE. This works around the problem you are experiencing.

You can use the one from EDGE by running the following:


wget -O /usr/local/cpanel/src/3rdparty/perl/utils/build_netssleay.pl \
http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/cpanelsync/EDGE/src/3rdparty/perl/utils/build_netssleay.pl
/usr/local/cpanel/bin/nativessl-install

Ok, I just did this on our other freebsd box and it appeared to install ok, but I still saw stunnel running.

I killed stunnel, but now I dont get to ssl via https://www.domain.com:2087

Did I skip something or is there something else that needs to be done?

Thanks !

Sorry, restarting was subconscious for me so I failed to post it:


/usr/local/cpanel/startup
