Hello,

I am having the same problem as in this thread: http://www.iredmail.org/forum/topic4052 … sword.html

I cannot login to Awstats even though I've created an admin account from phpmyadmin to login to redmail web interface.

I am trying to apply the patch but it's failing:

[root@mail ~]# patch -p1  < test
can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:

I tryed [root@mail ~]# patch -p1  < diff ,this doesn't work either.

Can someone help me with instructions on how to apply this patch please?

Regards

Re: Cannot use postmaster account after password change

You're running iRedAdmin open source edition, but the link in your post is for iRedAdmin-Pro.
Please try this patch for iRedAdmin-0.2 (open source edition):

Re: Cannot use postmaster account after password change

Oh, sorry for that I am running the free version indeed.

I have replaced the 2 user.py files and restarted but it seems the problem is still there, furthermore I can't seem to be able to add new users form the iRedmail admin panel, I am getting: internal server error, which didn't happen before.

How can I update or change the password for this postmaster user? I don't see it in vmail - admins table, maybe I deleted it by mistake.

Thanks for you help

Re: Cannot use postmaster account after password change

Hi anarchist18,

You should apply the patch, not replace two files. Because those two files contains other changes.
Well, you can consider upgrade from iRedAdmin-0.2 to the upcoming 0.2.1 directly to solve this issue. Upgrade tutorial is here:

You can download iRedAdmin-0.2.1 here: http://www.iredmail.org/yum/misc/

Re: Cannot use postmaster account after password change

Hi ZhangHuangbin,

Thanks for your help, I have upgraded to 0.2.1 and I can now login with postmaster and create new users.
Only one thing: I don't seem to have any Global Admins, can you tell me how can I set postmaster as global admin?

Regards

Re: Cannot use postmaster account after password change

With iRedAdmin open source edition, you have only one admin type, that's global admin. smile

Re: Cannot use postmaster account after password change

Hm, it could be, I was asking because in iRedmail Admin panel the global admin led is greyed out on my admin users.
