Almost feels like these updates aren’t tested before release on CB at all by the DirectAdmin. Maybe they should hire an email specialist again? Jeff’s absense really begins to show.
While I also understand your frustration, isn't that a bit harsh? It was under investigation as described in post #9 & #20 :)

You can almost expect these annoyances with a new update after 3.5 years with the infrastructure changes and stopping with SHA-1 signatures. I'm just glad that there is news from the SA project (also news on v4.0.0) as I thought the project was dead.

After updating spamd won't start:

Code:
# systemctl status spamassassin.service -l

Suggestions how to solve this?

When I attempt to restart spamd via DA, it looks for the non-existent init.d script?!

For older init.d systems, spamd is booted from the /etc/init.d/exim script.

As for spamd not starting, always check:
/var/log/maillog
/var/log/messages

might be in need of modules update from cpan, I'm not sure, would depend on the error message.

Maillog shows:

Code:
Sep 29 14:55:01 s08 spamd[12613]: config: no rules were found! Do you need to run 'sa-update'?

Looks like SpamAssassin won't start because it cannot upload the rules with sa-update because it ends with:

Code:
Sep 29 15:01:53.367 [15016] dbg: channel: channel pre file /var/lib/spamassassin/3.004002/updates_spamassassin_org.pre
can't resolve "85.17.150.123,85.17.96.69,62.212.64.122" to address at /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/Net/DNS/Resolver/Base.pm line 785.
Server is CentOS 7. Any clues?

Try to remove the /var/lib/spamassassin/3.004002 folder (backup folder first) and run sa-update -D again so the updater starts fresh.

By the way; I noticed after the upgrade the old /var/lib/spamassassin/3.004001 didn't get deleted. Isn't that something for CB to do after the update?

The file /etc/cron.daily/sa-update was allready updated with the correct line for the channel. Still keep getting the same error after running sa-update -D:

Code:

Which version of Net::DNS are you using? And is this perl-Net-DNS or is it Net::DNS from Cpan?
Also, you don't use 8.8.8.8 or another google nameserver in your /etc/resolv.conf?

Maybe we should remove the --nogpg part in the cron file as well? This seems to be working ok:

Code:
/usr/bin/sa-update -D --channel updates.spamassassin.org
Any news on whether we need that --nogpg? Seems more secure to leave that out.

Thx Richard, you pointed me in the right direction. Google nameservers were not present in resolv.conf but somehow networkmanager automaticly changed the syntax of the lines in resolv.conf like this:

Code:
nameserver 85.17.150.123,85.17.96.69,62.212.64.122
Changing it into:

Code:
nameserver 85.17.150.123
nameserver 85.17.96.69
nameserver 62.212.64.122
resolved the issue and now SA is working fine again.

Glad I could be of some kind of help to you.

I've got a problem too. Since installing the new spamassassin I'm encountering these kind of errors in /var/log/maillog:
Code:
[b]Sep 30 07:12:45 server18 spamd[16416]: rules: failed to run DKIM_ADSP_CUSTOM_HIGH test, skipping:
Sep 30 07:12:45 server18 spamd[16416]:  (Not a HASH reference at /usr/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/FromNameSpoof.pm line 319.
Sometimes extended with a GEN code like this:
Code:
Sep 30 07:23:01 server18 spamd[16416]: rules: failed to run DKIM_ADSP_CUSTOM_HIGH test, skipping:
Sep 30 07:23:01 server18 spamd[16416]:  (Not a HASH reference at /usr/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/FromNameSpoof.pm line 319
, <GEN46> line 1295.
Line 319 contains this:
Code:
    return 0 if ($self->{main}{conf}{fns_ignore_dkim}{$addr});
It's not on every mail, but quite regularly.
Any clues on what might be causing this or even better, how to fix this?

Hello all, i tried to upgrade spamassassin and instead of upgrading it downgraded my version.
Before updating
SpamAssassin version 3.4.1
running on Perl version 5.16.3
Using custombuild 2 tried from commandline and Custombuild from admin webpage.

After update

SpamAssassin version 3.4.0
running on Perl version 5.16.3
In versions text it have 3.4.2 and binary downloaded is 3.4.2

Initial log when build starts
Installing spamassassin 3.4.2...
Found /usr/local/directadmin/custombuild/Mail-SpamAssassin-3.4.2.tar.gz
Extracting ...
Done.
Configuring SpamAssassin 3.4.2...
NOTE: settings for "make test" are now controlled using "t/config.dist".
See that file if you wish to customize what tests are run, and how.

checking module dependencies and their versions...
checking binary dependencies and their versions...

***************************************************************************
NOTE: the optional fetch binary is not installed.

Sa-update will use curl, wget or fetch to download updates.
Because perl module LWP does not support IPv6, sa-update as of
3.4.0 will use these standard programs to download rule updates
leaving LWP as a fallback if none of the programs are found.

*IMPORTANT NOTE*: You only need one of these programs
It's only a concern if you are warned about all 3
i.e. (curl, wget & fetch) missing

dependency check complete...

optional binary missing or nonfunctional: fetch

warning: some functionality may not be available,
please read the above report before continuing!
