    Today, I had a problem with postfix restarting. I saw that the reason for the restart was that someone changed something in ISPconfig.

    What usually happens in mail.log is then:

    Dec 19 12:00:02 host postfix/smtpd[20381]: table hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable(0,lock|fold_fix) has changed -- restarting
    Dec 19 12:00:02 host postfix/cleanup[19128]: table hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable(0,lock|fold_fix) has changed -- restarting
    Dec 19 12:00:02 host postfix/cleanup[18459]: table hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable(0,lock|fold_fix) has changed -- restarting
    Dec 19 12:00:02 host postfix/cleanup[18512]: table hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable(0,lock|fold_fix) has changed -- restarting
    Dec 19 12:00:02 host postfix/cleanup[18515]: table hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable(0,lock|fold_fix) has changed -- restarting
    Dec 19 12:00:07 host postfix/master[29565]: terminating on signal 15

    But it did not restart. Usually it would say a few seconds later:

    host postfix/master[29565]: daemon started -- version 2.3.8, configuration /etc/postfix

    Does anyone have an idea why such a thing can happen?

    Any errors when you restart postfix manually?

    No... but I have now set

    $go_info["server"]["smtp_restart"] = 2; // 1 = stop/start, 2 = restart
    in config.lib.php

    I suppose it is that under some circumstances (that unfortunately I do not know) the stop/start is just too fast one after another.

    Let's hope that helps.
