ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION Cpanel::TailWatch::Eximstats appears to have unprocessed SQL in /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql. When mysql is unable to execute a query they are logged for processing later. Eventually these SQL files may be handled automatically and this message will not appear. In the meantime you can execute the queries as root with something like this: mv /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql.tmp_working_copy /scripts/restartsrv_tailwatchd mysql eximstats < /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql.tmp_working_copy Once you are sure all is well you can remove /var/cpanel/sql/eximstats.sql.tmp_working_copy ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION !! tailwatchd is enabled Running, PID 28932 Driver (Active: 1) Cpanel::TailWatch::cPBandwd Driver (Active: 0) Cpanel::TailWatch::JailManager Driver (Active: 1) Cpanel::TailWatch::Eximstats Driver (Active: 1) Cpanel::TailWatch::ChkServd Driver (Active: 0) Cpanel::TailWatch::Antirelayd Driver (Active: 1) Cpanel::TailWatch::ModSecLog
