Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata


This function removes in-progress Exim configuration files after a failed update to Exim. When cPanel & WHM attempts to update an Exim configuration, the system creates dry run files to replace of the ordinary configuration files.

  • If the update fails, the system leaves these dry run files in place. 
  • When the user accesses the Advanced Editor section of WHM's Exim Configuration Manager interface (Home >> Service Configuration >> Exim Configuration Manager), they access these dry run files instead of the actual configuration files.
