Topic: RoundCube - Connection to storage server failed

Hello!

I have installed and got working the following:

iRM 0.9.8
Ubuntu 18.04
MySQL
Nginx

However, logging into RoundCube results in the following from tail -f /var/log/maillog

Nov 26 13:33:42 mail roundcube: <b6qcgaj1> IMAP Error: Login failed for ric@email.com from 192.168.0.23. Could not connect to 127.0.0.1:143: Connection refused in /opt/www/roundcubemail-1.3.6/program/lib/Roundcube/rcube_imap.php on line 196 (POST /mail/?_task=login&_action=login)

Should I be trying to connect to port 993 instead of 143?
If so, how do I change it?

Thanks!

Re: RoundCube - Connection to storage server failed

What I think it might be is the password for the roundcube user for mysql is wrong or not set?
I don't recall setting a password for this user while setting up iRM 0.9.8 with RC option checked.

Is Dovecot service running?

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

yes, however, when I run dovecot -F I get permission denied - I need to do sudo dovecot -F is that normal?
I think it's on the certificate - not sure, can't check until tomorrow

Here is the output:

admin@mail:~$ dovecot -F
doveconf: Fatal: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf line 48: ssl_cert: Can't open file /etc/ssl/private/mail.ems.com.pem: Permission denied
admin@mail:~$ sudo dovecot -F
[sudo] password for admin:
Fatal: Dovecot is already running with PID 67898 (read from /var/run/dovecot/master.pid)
admin@mail:~$

Any thoughts on this Zhang?

Re: RoundCube - Connection to storage server failed

will this be helpful?  Maybe shed some light? tail -f /var/log/syslog

This means IMAP (port 143) is not running, which means Dovecot is NOT running.

You need to switch to root user with either su or sudo to restart Dovecot service.
