Default Change the /var/vmail to /home/mail


I have tryed to change the place of the email on a testing server, but they are still placed in /var/vmail.

It is a master server, and when the change is done :8080 become unreachable. I have to do a php -q update.php with the last realease v. stable.

Anyway, all the email are received I would like to ask you if you know how to see all the mailbox from webmin?

Thanks in advance

Move all folders from /ver/vmail to /home/vmail and then create a symlink.

mv /var/vmail/* /home/mail/
rmdir /var/vmail
ln -s /home/mail /var/vmail

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