Xinetd is stopped after Plesk updates instalation.

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 12.0 for Linux

Symptoms

Plesk update stopped xinetd service, but didn't start it afterwards.

Cause

Linux kernel sometimes keeps sockets opened for some time after the program exits. It prevents another program (the next instance of xinetd ) from binding to them, so xinetd can simply terminate.

Resolution

Add delay ( sleep 1; command) in the /etc/init.d/xinetd file between stop and start commands:

root@mail:~# grep -A3 " restart" /etc/init.d/xinetd
restart|force-reload)
$0 stop
sleep 1;
$0 start
