Upgraded to Wheezy. Broke dovecot.
When I did the upgrade to Wheezy, I didn't keep the current package or its configuration file and I guess some paths changed.

Help please.

Maybe you can post some errors from log files in here, just to see what is wrong.

Like I said, the configuration files got overwritten and I'm not sure what to do to fix that. ISPConfig is reading dovecot as being offline. Its most likely because the customized configuration files were overwritten. Is there a way to recreate them without messing up my ISPConfig configuration?

You could try a "service dovecot restart" and see if it spits out any errors, possibly to do with config files, sql access or similar. Check your maillog files for errors.

Don't have a debian install in front of me but what sprints to mind is backup files that ispconfig creates. If an upgrade's overwritten dovecot.sql you might find backup one still available.

Take a look in something like /etc/dovecot folder and see if you have both a dovecot.conf and dovecot.conf~ filenames.

The dovecot.conf~ is likely to be original ispconfig file, you could do a "diff" on the two files see the differences.

Also, you may get a working file back by running script in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts. Say yes to reconfigure services and this should build a correct dovecot config file.

You might also want a stock file from a fresh install to refer to - am just building a debian install now if you need to refer.
