I have successfully installed qmail in the past using the checkpassword
utility. This time, I would like to use vchkpw (vpopmail) instead. My
question is, do you need to have Apache installed in order to use vpopmail
or is that only if you want to use tools such as vqadmin and qmailadmin?
If I need Apache, can I just do a standard install from the ports (I'm running FreeBSD 5.1), or do I need to install additional features?
Thanks in advance for your help
Next time please start your own thread, instead of replying to someone elses.
As for vpopmail + qmail, you do not need Apache, if you want to use qmailadmin and vqadmin you will need Apache.
For a good guide for qMail + Vpopmail on FreeBSD 5.x: http://bsdguides.org/guides/freebsd/mailserver/qmail+vpopmail+qmailadmin.php
Thats an entire guide, and can easily be followed to set up a qmail install with SMTP auth, vpopmail and qmailadmin, if you dont want qmailadmin, just leave those steps out.
A standard install from the ports for Apache should be just fine :).
For a guide to install Apache + PHP + MySQL visit http://bsdguides.org/guides/freebsd/webserver/apache_php_mysql.php, if you just want apache, read that, but dont compile PHP and MySQL :).
