    Ok, please open /etc/xinetd.d/imap, /etc/xinetd.d/imaps, /etc/xinetd.d/ipop2 and /etc/xinetd.d/ipop3 and put

    Code:
    disable = yes
    into each of them. Then do this:

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
    /etc/init.d/dovecot restart

    Please add "disable = yes" also in /etc/xinetd.d/pop3s

    Then restart xinetd, wait about 30 seconds and then restart dovecot.

    I want to change the IP adress on the server, will it be a problem?
    Do I have to change the IP somewhere alse than in the ifconf file.....

    I see that there are some references to the ip adress in ispconfig.


    Just wanted to be sure before I change something :)

    So I have to change

    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
    /etc/sysconfig/networkng/devices/ifcfg-eth0
    /etc/sysconfig/networkng/devices/ifcfg-eth1
    /var/named/chroot/var/named/etc files
    /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf

    Where is the Vhosts_ispconfig.conf file?

    Anything alse on the fedora?
    Or will the changing of ipadresses just mess things up?

    It depends on your distribution. It might be in /etc/httpd/vhosts, /etc/apache/vhosts, /etc/apache2/vhosts,...

    Not if you change the IP address everywhere. :p

    Dovecot Imap Fatal listen (995) failed address already in use

    I am trying to setup Centos 4.8 Ispconfig 2

    rpc.statd is using port 995

    Dovecot Imap fails.

    How can I correct this?

    Ps: how do I get the "code" boxes to work, all I can do is copy and past the results for file such as cat etc/dovecot.conf
