started imap daemon and it crashed my system
so i want to set up an e-mail server. chose postfix. seemed to get up and running. then tried to get webmail. seemed ok. I went to my other machine on my home network and tried it. i got the ususal error that i was unable to connect because the local host refused it. I scoured the internet and came up with the fact that the imap service was not running. I have sound that there is no imap on my system. only the cyrus-imapd. so i decided that this was probly what i needed. started it up with "service cyrus-imapd start". i noted two errors:
kernel: journal_get_undo_access: no memory for committed data
kernel: journal commit i/o error
i thought, ok, i need to look those up on the web, found out that my web browser no longer worked. tried to get my services gui up to see what all was running. came up with an error. so i decided to reboot, maybe the imapd would shut down and i could continue. no joy. when it was trying to coming down, it got into a continuous error loop:
ext3-fs error (device hda2) in start_transaction: journal has aborted
did a hard shutdown (pressed the reset button). i am now going through a fsck.
it has finished, and is rebooting. it is going through another check of itself.
1. where did I do wrong?
2. how do i get my system(fedora core 2) to allow me to get webmail?
3. do i absolutely need the cyrus-imapd to be up and running to do this?
4. do i need to reload? (habit carried over from windowzzzz)
5. will it hurt to install another imap? (can they both run at the same time)
i am a noobie and am trying to learn more about fedora, and get an e-mail server up and running on it.
any good suggestions on howto's?
any help would be apreciated.
running fedora core 2
dual proc 600 mhz
256 mb ram (i think??? might be 512)
no sound card
trying to use postfix, squirrel mail,
and spamassasin (not gotten to this yet)
it has rebooted ok. am going to be in the process of checking all of the other things that i have set up to verify them. wont do much else right away.
has rebooted ok. thank god. can disregard 4.
