Dovecot Error Help Please!
Dovecot Error Help Please!
Hi all,

Have been a runnning a Sentora setup since Zpanel day's but recently had to do a complete re-install due to SSD Failure.

Since the re-install everything is humming away beautifully but i am finding the following error in my dovecot.log :

2020-02-28 00:31:08lda( Warning: sieve: file storage: Active sieve script symlink /var/sentora/vmail/ is broken: Invalid/unknown path to storage (points to /var/sentora/vmail/

(Domain name changed to protect the innocent!)
I am not a Native linux person and more a ms-dos / os2 user so have spent literally hours trying to figure out what the issue could be and would really like to solve it to have the "Perfect Sentora Setup".

Here's a copy of my dovecot.conf - dovecot -n

Any Help would be very much appreciated!

RE: Dovecot Error Help Please!
So, i gather that due to no replys to my post that none of you Sentora "Tech gurus" can help to shed some light on the above problem..

Ok then, can any of you help me with directions to setup Sentora behind and Nginx reverse proxy server with SSL capability. Sentora is already up and running but need to access an Internal server on a different port but still have use of SSL access.
Was told by Tgates:

I have searched the forums, top to bottom and cannot for the life of me find anything to do with setting up Sentora with SSL to run behind a Nginx reverse proxy server...

Can any Sentora "Gurus" help with this one please??  Huh

It's saying the symlink to the other folder is non-existent or the folder isn't there.
Sentora uses some different file paths and locations which we add 'symlinks' during installation to point to the proper files/folders. It seems that the symlink may have not been created properly.

Me.B may be able to guide you on how to reset the symlink with a simple command line entry or two.

Issues like this can be caused by not installing Sentora as actual root user (like using sudo instead of root user).
