Rebuilding Spamd on cPanel28 Feb 2013
Spamd on cpanel seems to always fail for me. I dont if its something special within my config or if its just a cpanel thing in general. Because I am a lazy admin I dont always bother with fixing things but jump to rebuilding them…this usually does the trick for me:
rpm -e `rpm -qa | grep spam` /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/installspam --force sa-learn -D --force-expire sa-update -D /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/spamassassin_dbm_cleaner /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/fixspamassassinfailedupdate /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/restartsrv_spamd
This just completely reinstalls spamd and cleans up any messes. Does the trick for me!
