    Spamd Failed

    I a keep received the email as below every 5 min:
    spamd failed @ Fri Jul 31 09:29:04 2009. A restart was attempted automagically.
    Service Check Method: [check command]

    Cmd Service Check Raw Output: Spamd is not running

    Any advise on solving this problem?

    It needs to be disabled in 2 places in WHM.

    1 - In Tweak Settings -> Mail
    2 - Service Manager.

    Make sure Exim restarts or do it manually.

    Try the following steps:

    Remove these files from /usr/bin/ and /etc/rc.d/init.d/

    rm -f /usr/bin/spamc
    rm -f /usr/bin/sa-learn
    rm -f /usr/bin/spamassassin
    rm -f /usr/bin/spamd
    rm -f /usr/bin/sa-update
    rm -f /etc/rc.d/init.d/spamassassin

    Now copy the updated files from /usr/share/scripts/

    cp /usr/share/scripts/spamc /usr/bin/
    cp /usr/share/scripts/sa-learn /usr/bin/
    cp /usr/share/scripts/spamassassin /usr/bin/
    cp /usr/share/scripts/spamd /usr/bin/
    cp /usr/share/scripts/sa-update /usr/bin/
    cp /usr/share/scripts/spamassassin /etc/rc.d/init.d/

    Now restart exim.

    In your WHM go to Plugins under software. Install the Clamav-connector. Then go to the service manager and disable the clamd service and monitoring. Then remove clamav-connector from plugins. You will not have any further issues after that.

    After disabling spamd from WHM Tweak Settings and Service Manager , try locating the executable file for spamd.

    # which spamd

    Then move the /usr/bin/spamd file to some where else say,

    mv /usr/bin/spamd /usr/bin/spamd_bkp

    This should fix the issue.

    After doing the above steps please restart exim.
