    Dear Forumembers,

    My problem is easy: ispconfig installer/updater script doesn't detect dovecot server and not configure it. When i reconfigure the services with update.php it always says "Configure Courier". But i don't have courier imap server.

    My config is centos 5.7@x86_64, ispconfig 3.0.4 with the atrpm's dovecot packages.
    I followed that instructions from

    The core of ispconfig is working, i can create email accounts and websites, and i can sending emails, but i don't recieve.

    Reconfigure Services? (yes,no) [yes]:

    Configuring Postfix
    Configuring Mailman
    Configuring Jailkit
    Configuring SASL
    Configuring PAM
    Configuring Courier
    Configuring Spamassassin
    Configuring Amavisd
    Configuring Getmail
    Configuring MyDNS
    Configuring Apache
    Configuring vlogger
    Configuring Apps vhost
    Configuring Database
    Updating ISPConfig


    Any idea?

    ISPConfig checks with "which dovecot", if dovecot is installed on your server, if dovecot is not found, it configures the default imap server which is courier.

    The link that you posted is for ISPConfig 2, which is s different software. Are you sure that you followed these instructions, as they are not compatible with ispconfig 3.

    Are there any solution to reconfigure ispconfig for use with dovecot?
    I don't want reinstall whole system because i have some living websites.

    Then it should normally detect dovecot. Not sure why it does not work on this server. What you can try to do is that you force the updater to use dovecot by editing the update.php script and insert at line 231:

    $conf['dovecot']['installed'] = true;

    and then run the update.php script again.
