Hello, Postfix that is installed automatically via virtualmin works fine but I had to upgrade my mariadb from 5.x to 10.11.2 and I noticed that the below command is removing Postfix yum remove mariadb-server mariadb mariadb-libs
So, I go to the Webmin, Servers , Postfix Server and I click on Install Postfix or via command line virtualmin-config-system -i Postfix to make the installation everything goes fine but it doesnt work any more I tried to reinstall the server several times. Is there any way to upgrade mariadb without removing the default postfix config?
I reinstalled the server with ubuntu 22.04 which one comes with the MariaDB 10.6 but Im having problems with postfix here too, I can’t login to roundcube with the correct user and passwords, there is a wildcard ssl and everything is green on mxtools
However I have used centos 7 for years but I will give a try to AlmaLinux tomorow.
First off, that thread is from 2018. Secondly, as noted by @Ilia and myself, upgrading MariaDB does NOT remove Postfix, they have no relation with one another, so there’s absolutely no reason why one would affect the other. I’ve upgraded MariaDB myself and have NEVER experienced it removing Postfix or other packages that are not related to it.
Secondly, you don’t “remove” packages to upgrade them, you upgrade them. So…
I did my last installation with centos 7 again fresh install configured email settings and DKIM added back my wildcard and emails are working very nice I can send and receive via thunderbird
I wont upgrade mariadb just because I do not know how to fix it Im sure it will ask me to reinstall postfix after the upgrade and emails wont work like now any more, not sure if there are security issues with mariadb 5.5, if you can show a better guide about mariadb upgrade on centos 7 would be very helpful, thank you.
I tried Ubuntu 22.04 yesterday but the emails didn’t work as I wanted , I feel better with centos because I use it for years, never got issues. I would like to test AlmaLinux on a local server at home but for now I have to fix my email server because I have clients online and they have active conversations.
Sure, I understand. I was reading some reviews and information about Alma Linux and looks interesting. in my server installation templates dropdown, I have 2 versions of Alma Linux 8 and 9, so which one is better for virtualmin?
