    Hi there,

    Am trying to follow tutorial but I got stock on "Setting the hostname"


    echo server.inspiron.com > /etc/hostname/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname

    shows:
    bash: etc/hostname/bin/hostname: No such file or directory

    Should I create a file or directory??

    The command must be split up in two lines:

    Code:
    echo server.inspiron.com > /etc/hostname
    /bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname

    Quota error

    Hi there, I worked split it and did ok, the next step with quota got me stuck.
    I typed:
    [root@server admin]# quotacheck -avugm
    bash: quotacheck: command not found
    [root@server admin]# quota check -avugm
    quota: invalid option -- a
    quota: Usage: quota [-guqvs] [-l | -Q] [-i] [-F quotaformat]
    quota [-qvs] [-l | -Q] [-i] [-F quotaformat] -u username ...
    quota [-qvs] [-l | -Q] [-i] [-F quotaformat] -g groupname ...
    Bugs to: mvw@planets.elm.net, jack@suse.cz
    [root@server admin]# quotaon
    bash: quotaon: command not found

    I figure that maybe quota wasn't installed but I did ti before:

    [root@server admin]# yum install quota

    Are you logged in as root? You must be root in order to set up quota.

    su
    password:

    Please run
    Code:
    updatedb
    locate quotacheck
    and post the output.

    Here is!

    [admin@server ~]$ su
    Password:
    [root@server admin]# updatedb
    [root@server admin]# locate quotacheck
    /usr/share/man/man8/quotacheck.8.gz
    /sbin/quotacheck
    [root@server admin]#

    Thanks

    quotacheck is installed. I guess your PATH variable is wrong. Please post the output of
    Code:
    echo $PATH
    (you must run this as root).

    [root@server admin]# echo $PATH

    [root@server admin]#

    /sbin is not in your PATH. Please post the output of /root/.profile and /etc/profile.

    here is what I got, also I have logged in as root

    [root@server ~]# /root/.profile
    bash: /root/.profile: No such file or directory
    [root@server ~]# /etc/profile
    bash: /etc/profile: Permission denied
    [root@server ~]#

    There is a Question!! am planning to try to deploy a web server using ISPConfig, but first am trying to meet perfect fedora core 4 setup, and I got a question about IP addresses, I got a public one but when creating eth0 and eth0:0 I got the public IP, but what about the :0 address.

    I know that I need to run a firewall, and I got Astaro but I don't know how to configure it, so am stuck again there.

    Thanks for advise.

    Try
    Code:
    cat /etc/profile
    However, you can create /root/.profile with the following content:

    Code:
    # ~/.profile: executed by Bourne-compatible login shells.
    
    if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
      . ~/.bashrc
    fi
    
    PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11
    export PATH
    
    mesg n
    Then log out and log in as root again and run
    Code:
    echo $PATH
    again and check if /sbin is in there now.

    The part about eth0:0 is totally optional, you don't need it. It's there to show you how you do it if you hae more than one IP address.

    I did follow your instructions and I got:

    Create file .profile and paste it in /root the log out and get back in then run:
    [root@morticia ~]# echo $PATH
    /usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin
    [root@morticia ~]# quotacheck -avugm
    quotacheck: Can't find filesystem to check or filesystem not mounted with quota option.
    [root@morticia ~]# quotaon -avug
    [root@morticia ~]#

    In the mean time I was following step to have Fedora up and running and then I found on:
    [root@morticia ssl]# openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    that is asking me for:
    [root@morticia ssl]# openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
    180 semi-random bytes loaded
    Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
    ..................................++++++
    .......++++++
    e is 65537 (0x10001)
    Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
    and I typed the root password and then:
    Verifying - Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
    back again and typed root password.

    Am doing it right or not?? later I filled out the certificate info.

    Now I got this:
    [root@morticia ssl]# chkconfig ipop3s on
    error reading information on service ipop3s: No such file or directory
    [root@morticia ssl]#
    the other were just fine, just got that error

    Then I went thru:

    [root@morticia ssl]# telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    [root@morticia ssl]#

    So not everything is fine!!!!

    Ok, your PATH is correct now. :) But you forgot to add
    Code:
    ,userquota,groupquota
    into /etc/fstab and remount the appropriate partition. Please have a look at the "Perfect Setup" tutorial for Fedora, it's shown there.

    It can be any password you want. It's not important.

    here is /etc/fstab content:
    # This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults,usrquota,grpquota 1 1
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
    /dev/devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    /dev/shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/sys /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
    /dev/hda /media/cdrom auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

    I did add it before!!!

    Where to check ┬┐Any errors in the mail log?

    Thanks

    After a soft reboot I got quota working, please check if everything seems to be ok:

    [root@morticia ssl]# touch /aquota.user
    [root@morticia ssl]# touch /aquota.group
    [root@morticia ssl]# chmod 600 /aquota.*
    [root@morticia ssl]# mount -o remount /
    [root@morticia ssl]# quotacheck -avugm
    quotacheck: WARNING - Quotafile //aquota.user was probably truncated. Can't save quota settings...
    quotacheck: WARNING - Quotafile //aquota.group was probably truncated. Can't save quota settings...
    quotacheck: Scanning /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 [/] done
    quotacheck: Checked 8855 directories and 98024 files
    [root@morticia ssl]# quotaon -avug
    /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 [/]: group quotas turned on
    /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 [/]: user quotas turned on
    [root@morticia ssl]#

    But

    [root@morticia ssl]# telnet localhost 25
    Trying 127.0.0.1...
    Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
    Escape character is '^]'.
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    [root@morticia ssl]#

    Where I can check mail logs??

    Then you had forgotten before to remount /:
    Code:
    mount -o remount /
    That's ok.

    The mail log is in the /var/log directory.

    You made a typo in your /etc/postfix/main.cf. Please run
    Code:
    postconf -e 'smtpd_sasl_security_options = noanonymous'
    and restart Postfix.
