  • Plesk 12.0 for Linux


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


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.


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
        $0 stop
        sleep 1;
        $0 start
