Question

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

Posted January 17, 2015 3.8k views

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)

  • From my experience I do not recommend you to have both apache and nginx on the same droplet. May I ask why you need them both?

  • Don’t know. I opened my droplet Ubuntu Lamp x64. So both of them already installed i think. I also use openvpn and teamspeak server on my droplet. What do you suggest? Should I uninstall one of two? After that might be able to use all of these applications with my website and mail on apache or nginx?

  • You created a LAMP droplet, LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, Mysql, PHP. Since you don’t need Apache to serve you a website you should remove it using sudo apt-get purge apache2.

  • Or can I go with lamp (without nginx) and able to use website,mail,openvpn and teamspeak with apache?
