My mailserver was working fine for a while now but suddenly stops by itself earlier today and I can’t seem to start it again via the Virtualmin dashboard (The page just reloads and dovecot did not start).
When I try to restart it using
/etc/init.d/dovecot restart in the terminal, I get the following:
[ ok ] Restarting dovecot (via systemctl): dovecot.service.
But when I run
/etc/init.d/dovecot status immediately after running the above, I get the following:
dovecot.service - Dovecot IMAP/POP3 email server Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/dovecot.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sun 2020-08-09 13:25:18 UTC; 3s ago Docs: man:dovecot(1) http://wiki2.dovecot.org/ Process: 18149 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/dovecot -F (code=exited, status=89) Main PID: 18149 (code=exited, status=89)
What could be suddenly causing this as Dovecot and the server as a whole was working flawlessly for months now?
