FAILED tailwachd help


You received emails that your CPanel server FAILED : tailwatchd and is not running follow these steps! Hope this helps.

1. You first need to check the tailwatchd logs for the reason as to why your tailwatchd has failed:
tail -f /usr/local/cpanel/logs/tailwatchd_log

2. Lets see what is handled by your tailwatched service.
/usr/local/cpanel/libexec/tailwatchd –status

3. Restart your CPanel service, this should restart tailwatchd.
service cpanel restart

4. Still receiving taildwatchd failed emails lets now force the tailwatchd update !
/scripts/upcp –force

5. Last thing that will definitely get you to stop receiving emails and get things going again would be to reboot or restart your server completely.

I hope this helps you can always reach out to cpanel to help you get this issue resolved by providing the log.
