I've been trying to move a vpopmail installation from one machine to another, but so far no luck. :/ I moved the /home/vpopmail directory and the database vpopmail. I also installed qmail and added vchkpw to the qmail-pop3d/run file and the pop3d seems to be running.
However I can not authenticate a user. The problem seems to be that the encrypted passwords doesnt match. On the original machine the pw_passwd field of my testuser had the following string: X;mJRRXhPqoEw . But when using vpasswd to set the same password again it got the following string in pw_passwd: $1$L2fT4$jycbn1r5dlhEJclfgcZZt1 My knowledge about different encryptionmethods is limited, but is it the salt of the 2 different machines thats different? Or can I get hold of the cleartextpassword to update on the new machine with its salt? Any help/hints/tips would be greatly appreciated and I can buy you a beer if you help me. ;) Best regards, Eric Persson
