Hi All ,

The site states : FreeBSD 4.7, 4.8, 4.9, 4.10, 4.11, 5.x, 6.x, 7.x, 7.x 64-bit, 8.x 64-bit, 9.x 64-bit (7.3 may require an exim recompile). This means 9.x is supported ?

I have a bit of a problem : I installed DA on my BSD 9 64-bit VPS.

Installed perfectly, however EXIM was not delivering mail, did get installed.
It accepted mails but did not distribute it to the mailboxes nor sent it out to the destination.

So i decided to do a pkg-delete for exim , ./build update , ./build exim , but that fails and i can't get Exim installed anymore ...

Code:
in2ict# ./build exim
mail-header-patch=yes is set in the options.conf, but is not required with this php version.
To enable the X-Mail header, set mail.add_x_header to 1 in your php.ini

Can you please help me in getting Exim installed again? It seems like a perl thing,
Most forum or KB posts i see with related problems do not provide a solution...

Hi , I have an update.

I reinstalled Directadmin and I am back in this stage :

DA installed perfectly again, however Exim is not delivering mail.
It accepts mails but does not distribute it to the mailboxes nor sent it out to the destination."
User do not receive email and their email is not getting sent out.

Could you please advise me in how to get Exim mailing ?

I see <unknown user> entries in the maillog, all user do exisst on the server. They we're restored though.
Any ideas on how to get them flowing again ?
All Permission are default and look fine.

For the record , this test user is a newly created user , so it affects existing aliases on restored users as well as new aliases on a restored user.
Just now tested creating a brand new user an create an alias, and the same happens in the log <user unknown>.
If any ideas , i would be very welcome, no reaction from support yet too.

Ok , checked that one, it is a cosmetic entry, another one down :)
Now I understand why my mail client is not giving an error.

I have another problem then it seems my mail does not get through to Dovecot. And if I send out it does not get delivered.
I refreshed my exim.conf and exim.pl, ran the dovecot patch etc etc, even re-installed DA..
Ran ./buil update , clean , dovecot , todovecot , etc etc.

Actually thinking very hard to setup a CentOS VPS and run on that , BSD 9.0 support does not seem complete somehow...

You might need to check your exim logs located in /var/log/exim/mainlog and see all errors.

They look fine, I watched all logs now, really do not have a clue because of the lack of errors.
My tinkering broke more now, i decided to reboot (really down when deciding this on a BSD box) apache will not start anymore.

"Invalid command 'php_admin_flag', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration"

I'm checking out another OS now on a sidetrack, i do not trust DA with BSD 9, i'm out for al day already, would really like to hear from support.
When are their business hours ? Im in Holland , the should be online in canada by now , afternoonish there i think ..

Now i got my freaking credentials for my freaking new VPS sent to my freaking not working email ;-)

If you hve nothing in /var/log/exim/mainlog, then either your exim is not running, or an email does not reach your server.
You should go deep into investigation.Here on forums you might find similar threads and read suggested step from there, or hire somebody to solve your issue.

I see the mails coming in my mailqueue with exim -bp, they just don't go into to dovecot.
when is retry from the mailqueue DA gui I get :
List processed
Details
/usr/sbin/exim: Undefined symbol "Perl_sv_free2"

I have been running DA on a variety of BSD since 2005, so i really, really did my browsing before posting ;-)

Now having a CentOS box installed, waiting for some DNS to change now ,TTL100, so i can test if my restored accounts will work on that one.
Putting this CentOS host in my hosts file already result in succesfully sent out email to my gmail and hotmail accounts.
Also mail to myself is working correct. I think when DNS is changed it will get external email OK too.

The BSD box is still up to, still hoping for a solution.

I got it solved ... somehow you do not want perl 5.14.
All build commands failed for me while on perl 5.14.
Do not install the Extutils:Embed which is only available for 5.17 (uneven!)
Stick to the modules named in http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=36, this and it's dependancies will give you all you need.

Likely, one of the main issues would be that exim would have been compiled against FreeBSD 8, not 9.
I'll add a note about exim on FreeBSD 9 on the install page.
