Virtual User & Domains With Postfix, Courier & MySQL (CentOS 5.1)
This is my first posting here and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
First off, GREAT TUTORIAL. Thank you falko for taking the time to create such a detailed document.
I have installed everything successfully, but postfix administration through phpmysql is cumbersome at best. I would really like to use something like PostfixAdmin, but I seem to be getting confused. So i'm about to ask what will probably amount to be a couple of stupid questions.
Are Postfix and PostfixAdmin supposed to use the same MySQL database, or are they seperate databases?
In the Postfix tutorial, it describes creating a database for Postfix called "mail". In the setup of PostfixAdmin, it describes creating a database for PostfixAdmin called "postfix". After comparing the 2 different MySQL database structures, I see that the MySQL database table structure for PostfixAdmin does not use the same table names as Postfix.
I have successfully created multiple users and domains through PostfixAdmin, but none of the new items show up in Postfix.
So how are these 2 applications supposed to function together?
Can somebody please help me out and shed some light on this? I really appreciate the assistance.
