QMail Admin

For some reason my vqadmin failed to create a new mail domain?? I know I had some /home permissions problems, but that was quite some time ago, perhaps I haven’t added a domain for mail in that time. Anyway, time to refresh my skills and software.


Home Page

cd /src
wget http://www.inter7.com/vqadmin/vqadmin-2.3.2.tar.gz
tar xvfz vqadmin-2.3.2.tar.gz
cd vqadmin-2.3.2
./configure --enable-cgibindir=/home/vqadmin/cgi-bin --enable-htmldir=/home/vqadmin/www
make && make install-strip
vi /opt/httpd/conf/httpd.include

        deny from all
        Options ExecCGI
        AllowOverride AuthConfig
        Order deny,allow

vi /home/vqadmin/cgi-bin/vqadmin/.htaccess
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /home/vqadmin/.passwd
AuthName vQadmin
require valid-user
satisfy any
chown nobody /home/vqadmin/cgi-bin/vqadmin/.htaccess
chmod 644 /home/vqadmin/cgi-bin/vqadmin/.htaccess
htpasswd -bc /home/vqadmin/.passwd admin admin_password
chmod 644 /home/vqadmin/.passwd
apachectl stop
apachectl start

All fixed. For a step by step guide to all Qmail software I recommend http://qmailrocks.org
