Default can't access ispconfig after wheezy update, sasl not working

I have just updated From squeeze to wheezy, and I cannot send mail through SASL, nor I can access isponfig from a browser.
apache, mysql and postfix works ok otherwise.

When sending a mail, I got SASL PLAIN authentication failed: no mechanism available messages.

When tried to visit my ispconfig page, it times out.

Any idea?

Thanks gratefully in advance!

OK, I have inspected it furthermore, and found that I need to downgrade the following sasl packages from 2.1.25 to 2.1.23:


I used dpkg --force-depends -i *.deb for installing the older packages over new ones.

I still cannot access ispconfig, it just time outs, cannot find any info in log files.
I use a custom port which I think cannot be an issue as it worked ok previously.

You have to run the ispconfg installer after you upgraded the operating system and choose to reconfigure services during update. a sasl downgrade is not required as ispconfig will reconfigure the system for the new sasl version which uses a different config syntax then the old one.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Thanks Till!
In the meantime, I discovered that my problem is suphp takes control over mod_php because of the new suphp.conf file under /etc/apache2/mods-available.
That's why I could not access the web interface.

Modifying the config file as of Falko's Wheezy tutorial suggested solved the problem:

<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
#<FilesMatch "\.ph(p3?|tml)$">
# SetHandler application/x-httpd-suphp
AddType application/x-httpd-suphp .php .php3 .php4 .php5 .phtml

Hope that helps someone else too.

FYI: I was able to resolve the same issue by editing /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf

root@mail:/etc/postfix/sasl# diff smtpd.conf smtpd.conf~
< auxprop_plugin: sql
< sql_engine: mysql
> auxprop_plugin: mysql
< sql_select: select password from mail_user where login = '%u@%r'
> sql_select: select password from mail_user where email = '%u'

Hi Lee,
I've found it previously, but it did not help to solve the issue.
Thanks to till, I managed to run update.php from the ISPConfig install, which made possible to put back the current version sasl packages.
So now everything is working fine!
