web-cyradm vacation - Failed to login error problem


Software:

kernel-2.6.16-1.2111_FC5
cyrus-imapd-2.3.1-2.6.fc5
cyrus-sasl-2.1.21-10
postfix-2.3
mysql-server-5.0.18-2.1
pam_mysql-0.6.2-3.fc5
httpd-2.2.0-5.1.2
websieve-0.63a
squirrelmail-1.4.6-5.fc5
avelsieve-1.9.6
web-cyradm-0.5.4-rc1

My entire Email system runs well. Everything works except when setting vacation auto-reply using web-cyradm. It returns:
" Failed to login "

The forward works in web-cyradm and so does everything else, except the vacation sieve script.

There is a serious bug in web-cyradm with the vacation sieve code. I know it is a fact because my other sieve programs work well. I am able to set the vacation auto-reply using sieveshell, websieve, and avelsieve. I checked and rechecked my settings and everything is OK.

Furthermore, I looked for hours and there are hundreds of unresolved blogs for this web-cyradm vacation "Failed to login" problem. This vacation.php, or wherever this code is, has major code problem and simply does not work. The problem goes back several years so apparently the mantainers have not kept the code up-to-date.

I have to conform myself to using the other alternatives such as sieveshell, websieve and avelsieve for setting the vacation auto-reply. They all work well. However, it would be neat to have it working in web-cyradm.

Does anybody have a fix for this? Any php gurus out there?

web-cyradm vacation - Failed to login error problem - Fixed

I finally got the web-cyradm vacation - Failed to login error problem - fixed. I know there are many others out there with this same problem which was bothering me for weeks.

I downloaded the latest CVS tarball from web-cyradm.org instead; version 0.5.5-beta1. It seems to work better than 0.5.4.

Also made sure that /etc/pam.d/sieve is the same as /etc/pam.d/imap.

Double-checked all settings, of course.

Now I'm able to set the forward and vacation with both web-cyradm as an admin and with squirrelmail as a user; also with sieveshell as a last alternataive or when doing remote CLI.

If any of you need help with this fix let me know.
