Topic: Cant login to httpS://example.com/mail/

Hallo all,

i have installed a iRedMail server on openSuse 11.4.
I followed this guide http://www.howtoforge.com/iredmail-0...-opensuse-11.3

Now when i restart the services i get the following from the terminal:

And when i test i cant log in to the webmail accounts.
If i try to log in i get this massage:

Connection to IMAP server failed

All the other services work and i can log in to them.
I also just restarted Linux and restarted the services then the output looked like this:

Re: Cant login to httpS://example.com/mail/

Starting dovecot Fatal: execv(/usr/lib/dovecot/managesieve) failed: Permission denied

It's strange that there's a permission issue. File permission on my openSUSE-11.4 (x86_64) is:

# ls -dl /usr/lib/dovecot/managesieve
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 989496 Feb 23 08:02 /usr/lib/dovecot/managesieve

Can you show us which version of Dovecot you're running with below command?

# rpm -qa | grep -i dovecot

Re: Cant login to httpS://example.com/mail/

Thx for the reply.

File permissions i have.

ls -dl /usr/lib/dovecot/managesieve
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1007416 Feb 22 19:04 /usr/lib/dovecot/managesieve

Here is my Dovecot version.

dovecot12-1.2.16-4.4.i586
dovecot12-backend-sqlite-1.2.16-4.4.i586
dovecot12-backend-pgsql-1.2.16-4.4.i586
dovecot12-backend-mysql-1.2.16-4.4.i586

When i look at the /var/log/mail.err i see

Re: Cant login to httpS://example.com/mail/

Fatal: Invalid configuration in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf

Could you please set "mail_debug = yes" in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf, then restart dovecot service, and monitor its log file /var/log/dovecot.log.
Paste related error log here.

Re: Cant login to httpS://example.com/mail/

Thx for the reply,

this is how it is in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf:

# Provided services.
protocols =  pop3 pop3s imap imaps managesieve

# Listen addresses. for Dovecot-1.1.x.
# ipv4: *
# ipv6: [::]
#listen = *, [::]
listen = *

# mail uid/gid.
mail_uid = 1001
mail_gid = 1000
first_valid_uid = 1001
last_valid_uid = 1001

#
# Debug options.
#
#mail_debug = yes
#auth_verbose = yes
#auth_debug = yes
#auth_debug_passwords = yes

#
# Log file.
#
#log_timestamp = "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S "
log_path = /var/log/dovecot.log

But the log file is empty.

Try to restart both syslog and dovecot services, then dovecot should log into /var/log/dovecot.log correctly.

Re: Cant login to httpS://example.com/mail/

As i mentioned before, could you please set "mail_debug = yes" in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf, then restart dovecot service, and monitor its log file /var/log/dovecot.log. Paste related error log here.

# incoming connection. Since the processes run in a highly restricted
# chroot, running each connection in a separate process means that in

Re: Cant login to httpS://example.com/mail/

Thx for the reply.

There is nothing in the logs   /var/log/dovecot.log and /var/log/sieve.log logs

think i have to play around with the permissions on the file /usr/lib/dovecot/managesieve
