    I followed Tutorial: Update the ISPConfig Perfect Server from Debian 10 to Debian 11
    It all looks good except i cant send or receive mail and Round Cube is gone and so has PHPmyadmin
    In Outlook i get the following :
    'Temporary lookup failure'
    In mail.log:
    ns postfix/smtpd[5441]: warning: hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman is unavailable. open database /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman.db: No such file or directory

    Try creating the mailman files as empty files:
    mkdir -p /var/lib/mailman/data/
    touch /var/lib/mailman/data/{aliases,transport-mailman,virtual-mailman}
    postmap /var/lib/mailman/data/{aliases,transport-mailman,virtual-mailman}

    The commands @Jesse Norell gave can be run on your computer. Cut and paste them.
    As to knowing what they do, try searching for documentation, for example with Internet Search Engines using
    bash Curly Brackets Wildcard
