Kindly find your help on the below,
I'm a beginner and I've Bulk of questions.
I've downloaded postfix 2.10.2.tar.gz to install on RHEL server 5.9. Installation will be performed via source code.
I need to modify basic paths settings,
1 - I installed SW.
2 - Edited paths in /etc/postfix/main.cf after installation.
3 - Moving files to new paths.
4 - Running postfix start >> I've this error message " no such file/directory /etc/postfix/main.cf which is the original sample directory.
I tried another approach,
1 - Configure main.cf before installation with needed paths.
2 - install SW
3 - Strange settings in main.cf happened :D .. sample directory /etc/postfix which is the original setting get back and take place of my modified path same happened with /var/spool/postfix
How can I modify paths please ? Don't ask me why :D ?
I've postfix 2.3 installed on other machine, running find / -name postfix .. I found different paths For Example: - in postfix 2.3 we've: /usr/sbin/postfix
/usr/share/logwatch/scripts/services/postfix /usr/libexec/postfix /var/lib/postfix /var/spool/postfix /var/lock/subsys/postfix /etc/rc.d/init.d/postfix /etc/postfix - in postfix 2.10 we don't have the following: /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/services/postfix /usr/libexec/postfix /var/lock/subsys/postfix /etc/rc.d/init.d/postfix
I hope to find your help/explanation for this difference, Am I installed anything wrong ?
My last Question is : How to uninstall it as it's installed via source code ? - I always ran "make tidy"
- then delete files by hand
I need you also to validate this :)
Sorry for long story & thanks in advance !!
