    Majordomo, how to install?

    When I setup DA + Custombuild 1.1 + Apache 2.2 + PHP 5 CGI on CentOS 5.2 64 bits, I got an error below:

    The source path for majordomo does not exist.  Make sure the correct path is set in
    After I was done with setup. I installed Exim RPM from DA. Then, I tried to start Exim Service but I couldn't with the following error :

    Shutting down exim:
    Starting exim: 2008-09-15 23:14:30 Exim configuration error in line 590 of /etc/exim.conf:
      user majordomo was not found
    I then, try to run script ./ and got error The source path for majordomo does not exist. Make sure the correct path is set in

    I looked into the script and it said the file should be in scripts/packages but there is no packages directory at all.

    I would like to know if I really need it? If yes, why DA didn't install it at first? And where to get majordomo file? (I've search but couldn't find it.) Can I get from and put it in packages?

    The majordomo tar.gz file should be in:


    That files needs to be extracted before is run, so if you don't have it, type:
    cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/packages
    wget -O majordomo-1.94.5.tar.gz
    tar xvzf majordomo-1.94.5.tar.gz
    cd ..

    I didn't have that file on my server the first time I've installed. (For the location you said.) Then, for some reason, I had to wipe out everything and re-install OS again. This time, I found it in directory you said

    I have Debian 5.0.3, 32bit, fresh installation of Directadmin, and have same issues..

    i did as (root):
    cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts

    and i have this:

    make: `wrapper' is up to date.
    Testing for perl (/usr/bin/perl)...
    Configuring scripts...
    ./ -m 751 -O 1005 -g 1 . /etc/virtual/majordomo
    ./ -m 755 -O 1005 -g 1 . /etc/virtual/majordomo/bin
    Copying tools to /etc/virtual/majordomo/bin
    Copying Majordomo files to /etc/virtual/majordomo
    Copying archiving and other tools to /etc/virtual/majordomo/Tools
    ./ -m 755 -O 1005 -g 1 . /etc/virtual/majordomo/Tools
    Using installed
    Installing manual pages in /etc/virtual/majordomo/man

    To finish the installation, 'su' to root and type:

    make install-wrapper

    If not installing the wrapper, type

    cd /etc/virtual/majordomo; ./wrapper config-test

    (no 'su' necessary) to verify the installation.
    ./ -o root -g 1 \
    -m 4755 wrapper /etc/virtual/majordomo/wrapper

    To verify that all the permissions and etc are correct,
    run the command

    cd /etc/virtual/majordomo; ./wrapper config-test
    i have tried to do:
    MYSRV:/usr/local/directadmin/scripts# make install-wrapper
    make: *** No rule to make target `install-wrapper'. Stop.
    how can i fix majordomo ?? (my exim is stopped because user majordom doesnt exists)

    thank you

    The rule will exist only if you run this from the majordomo subdirectory. I've never had to run the script; majordomo gets installed with DirectAdmin, so I'm not sure what you're doing or why.

    Or am I missing something?

    The problem was, after clear install on Debian that exim was not running at all, and mail doesnt arrive..

    At log a saw:
    Exim configuration error in line 590 of /etc/exim.conf:
    (i don't remember was it 590 or similar..)
    and this line was about to add safe senders or similar (admin, majordomo and so on), and error was:
    user majordomo was not found

    so i tried what DirectAdmin Support wrote above..., and i get messages as i described..

    also i have tried and done this:

    now, the error still persist, but after restart my exim is working fine, and mail is working..,
    (but still have failures as i described above)

    anyway, mail is working and let's say that this is solved for now.
