    1) Which Linux distribution?
    2) Is this a 32Bit or 64Bit system?

    Which tutorial (URL) did you use to set up the server?

    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    ls -la /usr/lib/dovecot/imap/
    ls -la /usr/lib64/dovecot/imap/
    ?

    I used http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-centos-5.5-x86_64-ispconfig-3. But i would replace the 64 bit part with i386.

    The out puts for
    [root@wachkama ~]# ls -la /usr/lib64/dovecot/imap/
    ls: /usr/lib64/dovecot/imap/: No such file or directory
    [root@wachkama ~]# ls -la /usr/lib/dovecot/imap/
    ls: /usr/lib/dovecot/imap/: No such file or directory

    Yes I did follow the whole setup very well and at Installing Dovecot I did it to the letter and when I started dovecot it started well. Could it be affected by SquirrelMail webmail. because wen i installed SquirrelMail webmail I didnt get its interface up running. Then when i installed ISPconfig dovecot failed to restart.

    The
    Code:
    rm -fr /usr/lib/dovecot/
    is the problem - this command is intended only for 64bit systems because there the Dovecot libraries are in /usr/lib64/dovecot/. On 32bit systems they are in/usr/lib/dovecot/, and you deleted that directory. :(

    Nice it worked perfectly. My ISPconfig is up running. one error only on Install A Chrooted DNS Server (BIND9). When i try to start it it has an error.
    Error in named configuration:
    /etc/named.conf:29: open: /var/named/chroot/etc/named.conf.local: file not found
    [FAILED]
    Do u know why?

    And in ispconfig it shows that mydns is offline am thinking it is becaues of the above problem.
