Question

iRedMail receive/sends fail (apache2-nginx ports conflict?)

I installed iredmail with nginx>mysql options. But now nginx port seems 80 and apache not restart. Tried to change apache conf files listen ports and virtualhost ports to 8080 (in ports.conf and 000-default.conf) and try to restart . It restarted apache but in both ways I could not receive and send mails. Only when i restart droplet, mails receive and send. In normal times it does not.I rolled back conf changes.

How should i do that? Last status like this.

Note: I’ll use mail server with my website. (same droplet)
