    Debian 8 to Debian 9.4 + DA + exim

    Hello everyone,

    very interesting issue I found.

    1. Upgraded Debian 8 to Debian 9.4
    2. Installed required packages for DirectAdmin installation
    3. Installed DirectAdmin
    4. Exim installation is down. journalctl -xe return this error /usr/sbin/exim: error while loading shared libraries: libspf2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    5. Checked /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/options.conf
    #Mail Settings
    exim=no
    eximconf=no
    eximconf_release=4.5
    blockcracking=no
    easy_spam_fighter=no
    spamd=no
    sa_update=daily
    dovecot=yes
    dovecot_conf=yes
    pigeonhole=no
    6. Fix according https://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=51
    7. Tried to use ./build set eximconf_release 4.9, but only this option correct ./build set eximconf_release 4.5
    8. Installed at result received message exim 4.9 installed.

    It should be fixed in DirectAdmin installation.

    Hello,

    Exim needs to be rebuild with every Debian release upgrade.

    I installed newest Debian then installed DirectAdmin. Issue not about Debian 8 DA -> upgrade to Debian 9 and change information about DA license.

    The same issue with Debian 8.

    Fix

    ./build update
    ./build exim
    ./buidl exim_conf

    Very interesting issue. I have 659 days server where I have options.conf
    exim=no
    exim_conf=no

    which have exim installed, but in new Debian 8 those options is disabled by default and install with errors.

    Yes, those two are disabled by default even if you go manually through the installation process. Even if you choose custombuild to manage exim. Yes, it might need to be changed. So feel free to bring it to Directadmin developers' attention either by opening a ticket or sending a PM.
