    I accidentally deleted /usr/sbin/postconf from the server. Now my postfix is not working. When ever I try to restart postfix, i get the following error message.

    fatal: cannot execute /usr/sbin/postconf!

    Server is using ispconfig3 on debian 7.
    Postfix and Dovecot were installed using the perfect installation on wheezy.
    Any help Please?

    You could reinstall postfix via
    apt-get install --reinstall postfix
    Maybe you have to use the ISPConfig update.php script to reconfigure services afterwards.

    [SOLVED] Error Starting Postfix

    After running your suggestion, I had to update ISPConfig3 by running the following:-

    cd /tmp
    tar xfz ISPConfig-3-stable.tar.gz
    cd ispconfig3_install/install/
    php -q update.php
    Thanks a lot that did the trick.
