Anybody used it? What does it do?

Tempting to try it but worried that once I start it, it might screw up.

Yep, it's mainly used for name-based hosting.
You'll be able to change hostname, ip address (used for name-based), domain name and admin email.

Hope it helps

Micro, maybe you'll know...

sendmail uses the correct hostname in the return path
BUT
sendmail.plesk doesn't.

It uses localhost.localdomain

How do you change it to the.proper.com?
me is right. hostname seems right.

sendmail.plesk is actually the default version that PSA disables upon install. So the operational sendmail version is /usr/sbin/sendmail or wherever you linked it to

I see!

Umm... okay, /usr/sbin/sendmail HAD to be deleted and now only /usr/sbin/sendmail.plesk is left.

/usr/sbin/sendmail had the return path as whatever@theproper.com

BUT

/usr/sbin/sendmail.plesk has the return path as something bogus like apache@localhost.localdomain or localhost@localhost.localdomain

How can I get it to use theproper.com (without renaming it to sendmail)???

Thanks

I actually don't see a reason for using sendmail.plesk
It's just been renamed. I wouldn't worry about it

btw: you didn't delete /usr/sbin/sendmail, did you?

I have to use /usr/sbin/sendmail.plesk as /usr/sbin/sendmail has been deleted.

What I don't get is why sendmail.plesk uses some bogus return path which makes the mailer-id invalid, and because the mailer-id is invalid alot of servers reject mail sent from my servers.

BUT, no need to worry, I discovered /usr/sbin/sendmail.bak and this reports the proper return-path and mailer-id.
(I think the techs renamed sendmail to this as we had someone sending out multiple spam.)

BUT, now it looks like PHP sendmail doesn't work properly.
Do you know where the PHP config file is that stores the sendmail location?

Note: PHP is compiled into Apache so there isn't a PHP config file.

Oh dear! Php sendmail is still not working.

As far as I know, Apache also doesn't contain the sendmail path, correct?

Oh, also, if you made any modifications to the apache config file and then use the reconfigurator, you'll have to make the changes to the apache config again as the reconfigurator overrides it.
