Ubuntu + iRedMail - Can't install and run correctly

  • Posted July 8, 2014

Hi all, I’m trying to install iRedMail on my ubuntu droplet. I’m following the exact directions from this guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-iredmail-on-ubuntu-12-04-x64

I have 2 problems, 1. I can’t use my domain name correctly. during the setup i’m asked to define the virtual domain name. the message says it cant be similar to mydomain.com, but i want to use mydomain.com as the domain… in all the examples the screen says it cant be example.com and you can define the domain name you want…

2. MySQL error during setup. during the installation I define the mysql root password as required, I’m 100% sure I’m providing the correct password yet the installation says it cant connect to mysql because the password is wrong

I’ve tried this process 4 times… I just cant get it to work :(

For problem 1 you can use mail.example.com so your email can end with example.com. As for problem 2 it is not mysql error but probably a project error. You can sent an email to the project developers and find out what is going on.
