    I installed ISPConfig about a year ago when i was still relatively new to Linux and Debian and the only problem i had was with the Mail Server ... Now 2 new Servers and a complete and utter f**k up and this is my Error...

    I have Read through several forum threads and even got a friend of mine to take a look for me but to no avail ... I have the latest version of mysql dev i have the Bison, Flex, GCC e.t.c

    I have even formatted 3 times now incase that was a problem.

    Can Someone Please offer there words of wisdom on this.

    Many Thanks in Advance.

    Please have a look at the perfect setup guide for your linux distribution and install and configure your server according to that guide and ISPConfig will compile flawlessly.

    See the part down the page: Howtos: ISPConfig installation

    Now i re-installed and followed the perfect setup guide AGAIN replacing the files that we're missing with the upgraded versions on the apt-get but now i have another problem.

    If i go to my domain or any of the domains pointing to my server then it loads up the directory listing for /var/www and not the correct redirection ... Also one of my pages uses PHP and when i try to load the page by clicking the shortcuts on the directory index then i get the PHP Code and not the webpage .... I followed the guide down to the last letter apart from where i had to upgrade the Dev Packages.

    Any advice on this one??

    Now it's getting weird i forgot to change the IP so i just did that and restarted the box ... but now EVERY url is pointing to placeholder page ... is web1 and (url2) should be pointing to web2 but it isn't it's just pointing to the domain i have checked the Vhost_ispconfig file in the apache folder and it looks fine to me .

    Did you send a mail to that account first before you tried to fetch mails? Maildir is created automatically when the first mail arrives.

    I sent the email from another server i have access to.

    Am i using the correct syntax for the login - username web2_admin
    then the password which i set

    or should it be web2_admin@serverdomain

    Did you enable Maildir under Management > Server > Settings > Email?

    YAY i finally got the mail sorted thanks to Falko BUT now i've got another problem... I can send mail using the internal webmail client but when i use a client such as Outlook or Thunderbird i get the following error

    I have enabled my Server Requires authentication and tried all of the options that come with that but still to no avail. Postconf -n is as follows

    I forgot to mention when i do turn on my server requires authentication i keep getting the enter username and password box constantly i have tried entering numerous different usernames and passwords including the root username and password for the Debian Server but to no avail

    Ok so it looks like SASLAUTH is failing here

    I guess you used the perfect setup for the wrong linux version to install your server.

    Please remove the line:

    PARAMS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"

    and replace:



    OPTIONS="-m /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd -r"

    and restart saslauthd.
