Restart MailScanner in cPanel

Weirdly, this isn't cover so i might as well just write it down here. If you have MailScanner installed on your cPanel, the best thing to do after you've made a changes is to restart the service, but you'll find out that MailScanner isn't around as a service. So to restart cPanel as a services, you'll need to restart via cPanel script

/scripts/restartsrv mailscanner

and you'll see something like this,

-bash-4.1# /scripts/restartsrv mailscanner
Waiting for “mailscanner” to restart …………………………………………waiting for “mailscanner” to initialize ………………………………

mailscanner has failed. Please contact your system administrator if the service does not automagically recover.

You'll notice that the service mentioned that mailscanner has failed, just ignore it. As long as the daemons is up, it's kicking.
