Update to Wheezy - saslauthd problem SOLVED
 
Today, I upgraded the server to Debian Wheezy. All seemed to go OK, but for one problem: users can no longer send email.

The error seems to lead back to:

cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory

No I have definitely started the sasauthd server. If I do

testsaslauthd -u usenamehere -p passwordhere

the result is

0: OK "Success."

but trying to send email puts this into the mail.log

May 5 16:12:08 www postfix/smtpd[2557]: warning: SASL authentication failure: cannot connect to saslauthd server: No such file or directory
May 5 16:12:08 www postfix/smtpd[2557]: warning: SASL authentication failure: Password verification failed
May 5 16:12:08 www postfix/smtpd[2557]: warning: address.co.uk[ip.here]: SASL PLAIN authentication failed: generic failure


This was set up as a Perfect Server a few versions of Debian ago, and I suspect that there might be some soft link I need to put in to get postfix to run chrooted, but I'm not sure what to do here and I can't find the old Perfect Server instructions any more.

Can someone please suggest what to check, what to do?

[Later]

:) I think I have fixed it. Changed the last line in /etc/default/saslauthd from

OPTIONS="-c -m /var/run/saslauthd"

to

OPTIONS="-c -m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"

then restarted saslauthd

Hi

Are there some more reports of using ispconfig2 with Debian Wheezy?
I would be interested as I have 2 productive mashines running squeeze.
And I think time is near for upgrading.

Best regards
Bernd
