comment Both nginx and php5-fpm init.d startup scripts are non-functional and returning no errors..? But they used to work perfectly
Thanks again womble. Running it under bash -x showed me where the script was falling over. Turns out there were some old php5-fpm processes bound to the same port. I thought the init.d script would have told me this originally, so didn't consider that could have been the case. After killing those processes and running the init.d script again, it came back to life as if by magic! ;)

Thanks for this womble! I have never delved into bash too much, so was unaware of this flag. You put me on the right path, and I was able to solve my own problems with this. I just can't post my answer yet for another 7 hours with my low reputation! ;)

comment Postfix & TLS is configured correctly, but Thunderbird throws cryptic errors when trying to send email via SMTP & STARTTLS?
Oh brilliant! I've fixed it! I knew it was going to be something silly... I hadn't enabled TLS/SSL in master.cf This site helped me: abing.gotdns.com/posts/2008/…

Good news! If I install Thunderbird on the server & connect to localhost, SMTP & TLS works perfectly!! :D Right.... must be a problem with either the firewall, or maybe the server isn't listening on the right interface..

@grawity - When running that command, I'm told the connection was refused... thus I guess there's nothing running on that port. I tried that same at port 465 - again, nothing. However, when I try it on port 25, I am greeted with a server certificate - and nothing much more. Thunderbird is still complaining about the server sending an incorrect greeting :/ Gah! Why are mailservers so confusing!?

netstat -ntlp says there's nothing listening on port 587, or 465. Only port 25. When I run openssl s_client -connect localhost:25 -starttls smtp, I'm greeted with the server's certificate.. But still, when I try and connect from Thunderbird to port 25 of the server, I'm told the server at port 465 sent an incorrect greeting! :/

No.. it's not working. Not even from the server itself... the connection is being refused. Yet the postfix server is running... :S

Okay.. I've just tried using SMTP without encryption (which used to work) and now I'm getting the exact same error from Thunderbird as above, mentioning port 465! :/ Looks like I might have broken Postfix! :S
