    I have a new server with Cpanel and I keep getting this hourly error message:

    tailwatchd failed @ Mon Feb 22 11:35:01 2010. A restart was attempted automagically.
    Service Check Method: [check command] tailwatchd is not running


    How can I fix this?

    My hosting company tried restarting it but was still getting the hourly error message.

    When I restart it and then check the status it shows:

    tailwatchd dead but pid file exists

    There are several threads on the forums discussing tailwatchd failing, like this one that you might find useful:

    Also note that at the bottom of this thread there are links to more similar threads, and those threads have similar links at the bottom of them as well.

    Should be something there to help.

    I already searched and read some of those and they were not helpful.
