Hello all, I am new to this list, I am in the process of testing some installs of various mail options.
I am trying to learn a little about some of them and set up some test machines before I decide which one to go with. At the moment, I am trying ot build on a redhat 7.3 system, a mail system that handles multiple virtual domains and users.A good way of doing this appears to be with qmail/vpopmail/mysql. I am using qmail as the MTA, and I would like vpopmail to manage the virtual domains and users / auth through mysql. I have qmail in and working and I have patched qmail and uscpi tools with the Matt toaster and Matt Mysql patch. My Mysql install is in the directory /usr/local/mysql I have configured vpopmail with the following options ./configure --enable-qmaildir=/var/qmail --enable-vpopuser=vpopmail --enable-vpopgroup=vchkpw --enable-roaming-users=n --enable-tcpserver-file=~vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp --enable-mysql-logging=y --enable-default-domain=mdlan.co.uk --enable-mysql=y --enable-valias=y --enable-ip-alias-domains=y --enable-incdir=/usr/local/mysql/include/ --enable-libdir=/usr/local/mysql/lib --enable-libs=/usr/local/mysql/lib --enable-sqlincdir=/usr/local/mysql/include/ Which seems to run well and return a good output vpopmail directory = /home/vpopmail uid = 517 gid = 90 ip alias = ON --enable-ip-alias-domains=y address extentions = OFF --enable-qmail-ext=n (default) roaming users = OFF --enable-roaming-users=n default user quota = OFF --enable-defaultquota=NOQUOTA default auth module = mysql --enable-mysql=y mysql replication = OFF --enable-mysql-replication=n default table optimization = many domains --enable-many-domains=y default system passwords = OFF --enable-passwd=n default file locking = ON --enable-file-locking=y default file sync = OFF --enable-file-sync=n default disable vdelivermail fsync auth logging = ON --enable-auth-logging=y default mysql logging = ON --enable-mysql-logging=y clear passwd = ON --enable-clear-passwd=y (default) valias processing = ON --enable-valias=y pop syslog = show only failure attempts --enable-logging=e default default domain = mdlan.co.uk --enable-default-domain=mdlan.co.uk auth inc = -I/usr/local/mysql/include/ auth lib = -L/usr/local/mysql/lib -lmysqlclient -lz I have hacked the mysql.h in /usr/local/src/vpopmail-5.2.1 to look like this ---snip /* * vmyvsql.h * part of the vchkpw package * * Copyright (C) 1999 Inter7 Internet Technologies, Inc. * * This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify * it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by * the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or * (at your option) any later version. * * This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, * but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of * MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Which mysql.h is it looking for, the installed/compiled one from the install or the one from /usr/local/src/mysql-3.23 (where I build mysql from) 2.) Why can it not find mysql.h as I have specified the lib/include dirs in my configure command which seems fine 3.) my /etc/ld.so.conf looks like this /usr/kerberos/lib /usr/X11R6/lib /usr/lib /usr/include /usr/local/include /usr/local/mysql/lib /usr/local/mysql/include /usr/local/mysql/include/mysql /usr/local/kde/lib /usr/lib/qt/lib /usr/lib/qt-3.0.4/lib /usr/lib/qt-3.0.3/lib /usr/local/lib /usr/lib/qt2/lib /usr/lib/qt-1.45/lib /usr/lib/qt /usr/local/lib/python1.5/site-packages which contains the mysql.h file and I HAVE run ldconfig many times. I have also removed config.cache and re-ran configure. Can someone explain the problem to me, and perhaps give me a hint as to how to fix it. google suggests copying mysql.h or libmysqlauth.o to /usr/lib or linking it ?? I understand how this may fix it but not why it is causing a problem now. thanks, Matt.
