Default Dovecot / ISPConfig 3 Install


I have ISPConfig 3 installed on a server that is in development. I am using Fedora 14, and the Dovecot version required for ISPConfig 3 to properly run the IMAP program has to be 1.2.x The rpm for dovecot using "The Perfect Server Fedora 14" link is no longer usable. I was able to find a tar.gz file for version 1.2.17 and it is currently located in the /tmp file. I tried to extract it and install, but it isn't being recognized. Could someone please provide the EXACT steps to take to install this version of dovecot? Also, will this file contain dovecot-sieve or do I need to search for it as well?

I think you should try the Dovecot rpms for EL5 instead: http://packages.atrpms.net/dist/el5/dovecot-1.2.x/

Hey Falko,

I was considering this at first but wasn't sure (since Fedora and Red Hat are sort-of the same). I tried to use this, and got this error (missing libs). I Googled the world over looking for them, but couldn't find them. Any suggestions?

libcap.so.1()(64bit) is needed by dovecot-1:1.2.17-0_115.el5.x86_64
libcrypto.so.6()(64bit) is needed by dovecot-1:1.2.17-0_115.el5.x86_64
libdb-4.3.so()(64bit) is needed by dovecot-1:1.2.17-0_115.el5.x86_64
libldap-2.3.so.0()(64bit) is needed by dovecot-1:1.2.17-0_115.el5.x86_64
libmysqlclient.so.15()(64bit) is needed by dovecot-1:1.2.17-0_115.el5.x86_64
libmysqlclient.so.15(libmysqlclient_15)(64bit) is needed by dovecot-1:1.2.17-0_115.el5.x86_64
libssl.so.6()(64bit) is needed by dovecot-1:1.2.17-0_115.el5.x86_64

Thanks in advance.

I guess (not sure) that you may have those libraries installed with different numerical suffixes. If that is the case make a symbolic link.

ln -s <source> <destination
for each file in /usr/lib/ or /usr/lib64/ directory depending upon your OS. Maybe it helps.

Else use remi and epel repos.

wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-5.rpm wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/x86_64/epel-release-5-3.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi*.rpm epel*.rpm
yum --enablerepo=remi install dovecot
