    Hi everyone!

    I have followed the "The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.3 i386 [ISPConfig 2]" tutorial and everything works as planed.

    When I try to shutdown my linux box I realize that [PostFix] have showed an error. I went through the logs and got the following message.

    Aug 6 12:34:31 iceserver postfix/master[2794]: warning: /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling

    I have read some posts here in the forums but I cannot solve this issue. Any consideration about this error?

    Thanks!

    What error does Postfix show?

    Are there any other errors in your mail log?

    What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?

    Is it possible that you not only used the "Perfect Server" tutorial, but also one of the "Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix..." tutorials? These setups are incompatible with each other...

    Hi Falko,

    I just have followed the Perfect Server Tutorial. As I said before I got an error on POSTFIX when I shutdown the "box".

    I have made some changes on main.cf, following some tips on forum, and maybe those changes have caused the incompatibility.

    How can I start the Postfix again without need to install everything again?

    Thanks!

    What exactly is the purpose of your setup? Do you want to install ISPConfig 2 on it, or do you want to have virtual users and domains?

    Falko,

    I want to have a system in which I can have more than one sites running with their exclusive mailboxes. I had choosed that setup cause it was very closed to my needs, but maybe I'm wrong.

    I have removed and re-installed the postfix and now the log is the following:

    Aug 15 09:33:43 iceserver dovecot: Dovecot v1.0.7 starting up

    Aug 15 09:35:02 iceserver postfix/smtpd[3251]: disconnect from localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]

    The errors were gone and I'm not sure about the it is ok now due to the last messages above. Can you help me?

    I suggest you set up the box again from scratch and use just the "The Perfect Server - CentOS 5.3 i386 [ISPConfig 2]" tutorial, no other tutorial. Then install ISPConfig 2 on the server.

    I was getting this warning after following "The Perfect Server" guide for Ubuntu.

    The problem is that alias_maps was undefined in either the /etc/postfix files or in the dbispconfig mysql database, so it was defaulting to "alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, nis:mail.aliases".

    The solution for ISPConfig 3.0 running on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty was to put:

    alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases

    at the top of the /etc/postfix/main.cf file.

    Restart postfix and confirm the change by running:

    $ sudo postconf alias_maps
