postfix is now postbroke


Recommended Posts

I am trying to get postfix to run for a nuke site @ localhost.


webmin tells me to manually config postfix and Konsole:


[root@localhost /]# postfix check

postfix: fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for


This is an old IP that I can't figure where its coming from. I looked in the postfix config files and checked in the network config of mcc.


I would imagine that wherever this is coming from should be pointing to either current IP,, or localhost and then things should be fine.

Uh, nevermind-

Got around this mail issue by deleting postfix and installing sendmail instead. Took me a bit to figure out I needed to add sendmail's path in php.ini:

;sendmail_path = /etc/mail

But the site works and users can now register (even tho I still don't know what I am doing).

postfix runs in a *kind of* chrooted environment

Take a look at /var/spool/postfix there are some insteresting things there like: /var/spool/postfix/etc/resolv.conf


this why postfix was using an old IP address. postfix had not been updated and therefore was using your old network settings.
