    Hi, i'm getting continuos email from my VPS that says:

    tailwatchd failed @ Sun May 1 05:35:01 2011. A restart was attempted automagically.
    Service Check Method: [check command] tailwatchd is not running


    1 mail every hour.

    i restart my vps via ssh shell and i get this message:

    Please try the following commands:

    /scripts/mysqlup --force
    /scripts/perlinstaller --force DBD::mysql
    /scripts/checkperlmodules --full --force
    At that point, re-attempt starting cPanel again:

    /etc/init.d/cpanel restart
    Then check if tailwatchd is running:

    ps aux | grep tailwatchd
    If it is still not working at that point, please open up a ticket using the link in my signature.
