"There are stopped jobs."+Vmailmgr


Hiya, I was playing around with vmailmgr, and am presently logged in as root. I started the vmailmgr service, and now I can't log out and don't know how to terminate it...

If I try to log out:
#exit
exit
There are stopped jobs.
#


Also, does anybody know of any places which have good tutorials on setting up qmail and vmailmgr, including what they actually do in relation to each other? I have installed them but am unsure on how to make them start at boot/run them at all, add mailboxes/domains etc... I have tried understanding the ones at tldp.org but the learning curves are quite steep and I tend to get stuck (like at the point I am now).

Thanks for any assistance

Thumbs down

did you try to type

ps ax |grep vmailmgr
kill pid
*pid - pid number of vmailmgr

if than don't try
kill -9 pid
if then don't pray to the GOD!

that message occurs when you Ctrl+Z an application in a terminal wihtout putting into the background officaily with "bg" if you type "fg" the stopped application should move back to the foreground

Type 'jobs' at the shell prompt to see a list of background jobs. You can kill background jobs by job number by prefixing it with a % (to distinguish the number from a PID), i.e. kill %1 kills background job 1. You can use the same system with the fg and bg commands.
