Hi Falko,

This time I tried Debian Sarge 3.1 instructions on my Kanotix RC-11 version.

Everything went fine not even a single error. Also I omitted Courier section.

After installing ISPConfig and logged in as admin. I selected the Services section and found the following:-

Web-Server: Online
FTP-Server: Online
SMTP-Server: Online
POP3-Server: Offline
BIND-Server: Online
mySQL-Server: Online

and my nmap on localhost shows the following, i could not see any 110 port in it. Could you please tell me what might have gone wrong and how can I now get the Pop3 service running, which in the above ISPConfig would change from Offline to Online.

Please see my nmap output below:-


root@aasai:~# nmap localhost

Starting nmap 3.93 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2005-10-22 20:45 BST

Please help me to get this one right.

Many thanks for your excellent article.

Why did you omitt courier? It's the best pop3 and mailserver for ISPConfig under DEBIAN?

As you can see in your nmap scan you currently have no pop3 and imap server installed.

Hi Till,

As far as I understood the steps, as described in the below section:

Postfix/POP3/IMAP

In order to install Postfix with SMTP-AUTH and TLS as well as a POP3 server that also does POP3s (port 995) and an IMAP server that is also capable of IMAPs (port 993) do the following steps:


and Also as mentioned in the Courier Section, which is described below:

Courier-IMAP/Courier-POP3

If you want to use a POP3/IMAP daemon that has Maildir support (if you do not want to use the traditional Unix mailbox format) you can install Courier-IMAP/Courier-IMAP-SSL (for IMAPs on port 993) and Courier-POP3/Courier-POP3-SSL (for POP3s on port 995). Otherwise you can proceed with the Apache configuration.

apt-get install courier-imap courier-imap-ssl courier-pop courier-pop-ssl

<- No


ipopd and UW-IMAP will then be replaced.

I thought Courier section is optional and if I want Maildir support or if I want the ipopd and Uw-IMAP servers to be replaced.

I thought I already have installed pop3 and pop3s as mentioned in the Postfix section, so why bother with Courier section.

So, is it not optional and should i do it now, will it work if I do it now, or should I start from the begining?

Many thanks,

Nandhu.

The Courier part is optional, you don't have to use it if you're happy with a POP3/IMAP daemon that uses mbox. If you want to have Maildir, then install Courier.

So you can

a) install Courier as per the instructions in the howto,

or

b) stay with your current setup and try to fix the POP3 problem. To do so, please have a look at /etc/inetd.conf and search for appropriate entries for POP3 and IMAP. You can also post your /etc/inetd.conf here so that we can see where the problem might be.

Hi Falko,

Correct, that's what I thought too. And that's the reason I did not proceed further to install the optional Courier.

Basically I tried when I followed the tutorial 1st time, I ended up installing Courier and ISPConfig still showed me with POP3 Service alone as Offline, and so I reinstalled Kanotix from the begining and then started all from second time. So this time I thought I will not install the optional Courier Step to find out whether it will work out this time without Courier's involvement.

Following is my /etc/inetd.conf

Yes, courier is optional but you wont get happy with an mbox based mailserver if you get more traffic on your server :) And that's what i told you above ....

Looks ok. Can you restart inetd:
/etc/init.d/inetd restart

and post the output of netstat -tap here?

nandhu
23rd October 2005, 21:38
Hi Falko,

Excellent, after restarting the inetd it worked like a charm.

I think you should add a script to start mysql,inetd,bind9,apache2,proftpd,postfix automatically after reboot as part of your Perfect Setup. Its only a suggestion. I'm sure many linux/unix guys would know to do it straightway. But it would help many budding unix chaps like me. :)

Anyway, following is my netstat -tap after restarting, inetd, proftpd, bind9, apache, mysql and postfix :-

Do you think I can now go ahead and install Courier-IMAP/POP3 now as Till says it is the best to have.

Thanks Till for your suggesstion.

Thanks a lot to Falko and team for yet another tutorial.

I'm sure you can say that this debian sarge one works for Kanotix_RC11 as well. :)))

Sure - but if you don't have much email traffic then your current setup might be sufficient. :)

Hi,

With the Current Step Up without Courier thing.

I installed the webmail package from ispconfig.org website and I can get to the homepage of the mail login.

From there when I try to login using my username and password that I created using the ISPConfig system, I get the following error on the login page.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Login error

You cannot login with the username and password entered.

Please check your username and password and try again.

Back
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


And I get the following error message in /var/log/mail.log


Oct 24 19:23:05 aasai ipop3d[7171]: pop3 service init from 127.0.0.1
Oct 24 19:23:05 aasai ipop3d[7171]: Command stream end of file while reading line user=??? host=localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1]


Any hint as what is causing this problem?

You have to use the email address (not the username) and the password.

nandhu
24th October 2005, 22:54
Hi Falko,

I think I tried username as well, but I cannot really say that now, because I installed courier now :)

After installing courier my inetd.conf is now fully commented now each and every line including the previous pop3 stuff posted above. And my pop3 was showing offline in ISPConfig, but then I figured to start the following five daemons and it worked.

courier-authdaemon
courier-imap
courier-imap-ssl
courier-pop
courier-pop-ssl

Could you post some instructions as how to get these things and other ISPConfig required services started automatically after a server reboot?. I know its bit of out of scope, but it would be a very useful stuff for me :)

And now I've got the email working as well. And I tried: email_username@domain.com and it worked straightaway.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Nanda.

Normally these services start automatically at boot time. But to go sure, you can run
update-rc.d courier-pop defaults to make courier-pop start at boot time.

Hi Falko,

I followed your awsome tutorial on Debian 3.1. I have been using ISPConfig for sometime and have not had any problems however, last week my POP3 service went offline since there has been no change to the server and nothing reported in the /var/log/syslog files I'm am at a loss to know what to do. This is my company server so it is vital that I get it up and running again ASAP. I installed Courrier POP3/IMAP with the -SSL option and they both start fine so why would ISP say that there is no POP3 service when its running in the process list ps -A.

Also, when the server starts up all demons load fine except ISPConfig which is the last one to load. It just hangs while saying: "Starting ISPConfig System..."

Thanks for all your hard work and for the help.

ISPConfig shows pop3 offline because pop3 is not running, you are just running pop3s. Eiteher you enable pop3 or you ignore that ISPConfig shows that the service is offline.

I have to run that command from the Debian Recovery Console. I made a symbolic link to /home/cyelinek/ispconfig_server since it seem to start ISPConfig from there. But it starts it form both places. But when I exit the recovery console the system continues to boot but then says that the ISPConfig process is arleady runing and hangs. So not sure what that is.

Would upgrading ISPConfig to the newest version solve the problem. I have the installation file but I can't seem to get it installed. Also I am running Apache2 but ISPConfig seems to be running Apache1.

Debian Sarge is supported. What's in the file /etc/debian_version?

It should show 3.1, if you were using Sarge. Lenny/Sid means you're using testing/unstable which is not supported...

I think you can just write 3.1 or 4.0 into /etc/debian_version. ISPConfig will then think that it's a Sarge or Etch installation.

21st June 2007, 22:57
Now when I restart I get a whole screen of erros which I can't copy down since I'm using a KVM to see the console. However when I reboot the server ISPConfig comes up fine. Looks like we did it. It seems to be tempermental.

One more questions. What is the file required to update ISPConfig. I go to Update inside of ISPConfig but I can never seem to find the file it needs.

Error:

Installation instructions not found: /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/temp/4aaa33edc74c573d199309e76abd436f/package.ins

I tried running /.setup I get setup started Please Wait and then the system hangs.

Any ideas?

2. I wwant to update ISPConfig the update instructions don't help I read those and they don't tell me which file I need. The /.setup command just makes the server hang can't I use the GUI Update command? All I need to know is which file contains installation instructions.

Thanks

2) There is no GUI for updating. Just unpack ISPConfig and run the setup script, there is no other way to update ISPConfig.

The Courier part is optional, you don't have to use it if you're happy with a POP3/IMAP daemon that uses mbox. If you want to have Maildir, then install Courier.

So you can

a) install Courier as per the instructions in the howto,

or

b) stay with your current setup and try to fix the POP3 problem. To do so, please have a look at /etc/inetd.conf and search for appropriate entries for POP3 and IMAP. You can also post your /etc/inetd.conf here so that we can see where the problem might be.

I have done the same thing skipped this section. Now i have install the Qourier as per http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_debian_etch_p5


12 Courier-IMAP/Courier-POP3

Run this to install Courier-IMAP/Courier-IMAP-SSL (for IMAPs on port 993) and Courier-POP3/Courier-POP3-SSL (for POP3s on port 995):

apt-get install courier-authdaemon courier-base courier-imap courier-imap-ssl courier-pop courier-pop-ssl courier-ssl gamin libgamin0 libglib2.0-0

You will be asked two questions:

Create directories for web-based administration ? <-- No
SSL certificate required <-- Ok


What else do i need to do? Note: I already install ISPConfig and created some 3 web site.

Thanks,

I dont think it is going to accept those commands.
Visit the www.ispconfig.org , it has got the list of your options
