I recently migrated to a different server at a different location and now I'm experiencing a weird problem:
postfix/master: fatal: open lock file /var/lib/postfix/master.lock: cannot open file: Permission denied
I've googled around and can't get it to work. I've checked permission on
/var/lib/ and things look good there:
hawk084:/var/lib/postfix# l total 20K -rw------- 1 postfix postfix 0 Jan 25 19:06 master.lock -rw------- 1 postfix postfix 1.0K Jan 6 02:48 prng_exch -rw------- 1 postfix postfix 8.0K Jan 6 00:43 smtpd_scache.db -rw------- 1 postfix postfix 8.0K Jan 6 00:43 smtp_scache.db hawk084:/var/lib/postfix# /etc/init.d/postfix status postfix is not running.
I uninstalled postfix and re-installed it but, nothing fixes this damn problem.
I even removed master.lock but, nothing changed. Postfix is running under "postfix" user account as default.
I have exactly the same configurations as from the older server which is also running on debian squeeze.
