I have never used anything except cpanel so i decided to get a VPS to learn other systems. I have managed to install webmin and virtualmin and started a domain on this VPS. The only thing missing is FTP program.
I have tried to install proftpd but it was asking for some libs but i forcefully installed proftpd now when i go to its configuration i get this error
The program /usr/sbin/proftpd does not appear to be the ProFTPD server. Maybe it is not installed, or your module configuration is incorrect. Output from the command /usr/sbin/proftpd -v was : /usr/sbin/proftpd: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.6.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Please help me out.
I rebuilt the VPS and tried again .. now i am getting this error:
Install failed : error: Failed dependencies:
libcrypto.so.2 is needed by proftpd-1.2.10-10.0.el2.rf.i386
libssl.so.2 is needed by proftpd-1.2.10-10.0.el2.rf.i386
If i tries through YUM i am getting this error:
Installing package(s) with command yum -y install proftpd ..
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
Nothing to do .. install complete.
When i try to connect to telnet on port 25 & 110 it says after few seconds :
Connection to host lost.
There's the problem right there, you need a pop and smtp server that listens on those ip's if you are to receive and retrieve email
Did you install a pop / smtp server ?
Look through the man pages for those, pop and mail server which you installed, it may be that you just need to configure them to listen on those ip's - the joys of owning your own dedicated server - google works wonders
It has Sendmail. Do i need to configure it or should i need to install something else ?
You'd need to configure it if you haven't already - sendmail only listens on localhost (127.0.0.1) by default, so in order to receive mail, you need to configure that and make sendmail listen on an external IP. You also will need a pop/imap server for folks to download mail as well.
I'd personally get rid of sendmail and install postfix and courier for pop/imap.
Thats right once again ur advice worked & once again my issue was solved i used external ip of server instead of 127.0.0.1. Now 25 started working and user is able to get mails. for pop3 need to work now. Any suggestion for that ???
This VPS almost configured to work i will add one more domain to see what kind of problem comes here.
I need to install it so i fatched a version to my VPS and installed it. After installtion it still did't worked. Then i figured out that i need to edit something here are the steps
Goto /etc/xinetd.d directory & modifying the ipop3 file. Set the value for disable to no, and save the file. See Below
# default: off
# description: The POP3 service allows remote users to access their mail# using an POP3 client such as Netscape Communicator, mutt,# or fetchmail.
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/ipop3d
log_on_success += USERID
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no <<< (by default its yes we just changed it to no)
Now you need to restart the xinetd dæmon to make the new setting work. This is possible by using the rc script /etc/init.d/xinetd. Simply issue the restart command as seen below.
