Dovecot not updating correctly

Hello!

I have a couple of CentOS Directadmin VPSses running and with the latest update ran into a strange issue. When updating through ./build update, Directadmin does not seem to see the new Dovecot 2.3.x version. It keeps insisting that Dovecot 2.2.33 is the last version. The trouble is though, that the Dovecot conf is using the new 0.3 (or 2.3.x) settings in ssl.conf. This causes Dovecot to crash on startup. I altered the ssl.conf to the "old" 2.2.x use of settings and parameters, so for now Dovecot seems happy again.

Strange this is; why won't Directadmin update Dovecot to the latest version?

Kind Regards

Can you check which server you are using? It seems files6 is running behind with some things.
Try this:
Code:
cd /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild
./build update
./build set_fastest
After that, do a ./build update again and try to update Dovecot after that and see if it works.

Fastest server is files6.directadmin.com at 16252928 B/s
Changed downloadserver option from files.directadmin.com to files6.directadmin.com
After the update i did a /build versions which still shows:

Code:
Latest version of dovecot: 2.2.33
Installed version of dovecot: 2.2.33

Latest version of dovecot.conf: 0.3
Installed version of dovecot.conf: 0.3

Never mind, just fixed it myself.

Turns out, because of an issue with a certain DoveCot update a while back, this version was hardcoded in custom_versions.txt. Tooks me a while to figure that one out...

Kindly thanks for your help though, Richard!

Ah I just wanted to suggest that if the issue persisted, but good you already found it yourself.
Indeed, custom things sometimes take some remembering and figuring out, had that kind of issue myself too in the past. :)

As for the help, you're welcome!

@rahul097: Please create a new thread with your issue, this has nothing to do with Dovecot update.
