    Hi,

    Centos 6.4 , followed the perfect server howto (http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-centos-6.4-x86_64-nginx-dovecot-ispconfig-3 )

    No BIND was installed , as server is used for WEB only.

    Probelm with sending mails . I can see emails in posfix queue, but the log gives :
    Code:

    The issue is not related to bind, the mail system is incomplete. Did you install all mail software packages as described in the perfects etup guide before you installed ispconfig?

    Actually i should had done that. However i skipped the mailman and squirrel mail . Is there any way I can keep this up and running ? (Basically there's no mails hosted there, thus i only need outgoing mail (sent form php) so be working .

    Can you let me knwo which packages might be missing ?

    There is at least a dovecot file missing. You can skip mailman, but all other packages except of the mailman package should be installed. Thend download the ispconfig tar.gz again, unpack it and run the update.php script. choose yes when the updater asks if the services should be reconfigured.

    If this will be doen on a production machine will there any chance it will rewrite PHP.ini/ php-fpm configs/ Nginx configs/ ? I mean can it actually break the web functionality , as we're having lots of subdomains, some of those are manually configured. Is it possible update would break things ?

    The update does not change the domain configuration of individual sites, it will change only global config files.

    Btw. If thats a production server, then you should install updates regularily anyway to keep your system safe.

    Tested on test amchine - got
    Code:
      The value of variable $myhostname is "TestOS", but should have been
      a fully qualified domain name; perhaps uname(3) did not provide such.
      You must explicitly assign a FQDN of this host to variable $myhostname
      in amavisd.conf, or fix what uname(3) provides as a host's network name!
    Starting amavisd:                                          [FAILED]
    
    
    have changed $myhostname in amavisd.conf and service started

    but emails didnt work, log said

    Code:
    dovecot: auth: Error: Can't open configuration file /etc/dovecot-sql.conf: No such file or directory
    
    the file actually in /etc/dovecot , so just copied it to the /etc folder

    restarted services - worked !

    One more thing to resolve :
    Code:
    Oct 18 15:10:57 localhost postfix/smtp[11316]: C25204DC0AFA: to=<[email protected]>, orig_to=<[email protected]>, relay=127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]:10024, delay=211132, delays=211127/0/0.01/4.8, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 from MTA(smtp:[127

    ogle.com/mail/bin/answer.py?answer=6596 l4si1432205eew.161 - gsmtp (in reply to RCPT TO command))
    

    Why it send emails to [email protected] ?
    (I do have hosts like DOMAIN.LT but localhost.lt comes out of nowhere )
    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks
