====

Greetings! I wanted to try iRedMail, but encountered some error - maybe somebody will have suggestions.

So, having clean installation of Ubuntu 20.04.4 (Desktop Edition) on virtual machine, I've downloaded tar file of 1.6.0. version, launched with sudo user, followed installation steps - seems everything was successful. But when I enter Roundcube's URL following is shown:

DATABASE ERROR!
Unable to connect to the database! 

In /var/log/postgresql/postgresql-12-main.log there are:
2022-05-30 11:22:50.514 +04 [5927] vmail@vmail FATAL:  password authentication failed for user "vmail"
2022-05-30 11:22:50.514 +04 [5927] vmail@vmail DETAIL:  Role "vmail" does not exist.

and also :
2022-05-30 11:22:01.357 +04 [5909] fail2ban@fail2ban LOG:  provided user name (fail2ban) and authenticated user name (root) do not match
2022-05-30 11:22:01.357 +04 [5909] fail2ban@fail2ban FATAL:  Peer authentication failed for user "fail2ban"

I think, somehow database schemas are not properly created.
If any additional information is needed to help to fix it, I'll gladly provide it.

Hello Zhang,

Thanks for reply. Reverted snapshot, manually corrected file, installed again - have positive result of entering web panels of iRedMail and RoundCube. Will continue testing further.

hello, how are you, I'm new to the forum, I'm from Venezuela, I have a problem, and it's that iredmail was damaged days ago for some reason on the production server, it doesn't open the mail or roundcube and neither does iredadmin,...

Hello tiki,

I'm have just started working with iRedMail, but I would recommend to check firewall first of all (iRedMail offers new firewall rules model - /etc/nftables.conf, maybe it's somehow linked to your problem)

Hello, thank you for your answer, I already solved the problem I had and it was that the amavis database at the time of migration gave me a parameter error and I created the manual database and I had an error writing the database in mysql I wrote amavis and it should be amavisdI modified the database and everything works fine on the intranet and outgoing emails to the Internet.
