Ok I repaired the database files, (just said clients were using them or they

Also increased the authdaemonrc processes from 5 to 10.  Time to let it run
for awhile and see what happens.  Also the db is local so shouldn't
encounter network latency.

Another time i had this problem was when the database to be authenticated
against wasn't the localhost. If the network was clogged up (long ping
replies can check this), i would have such failures.

cd /var/lib/mysql/vpopmail

if any is corrupt, just add -r

Hi we've been battling a very strange problem with our server for
awhile
now.  Periodically when a user tries to send mail (using smtp auth),
or
check his/her pop3 box, we get auth failures.  What happens is youll
have
to
auth 3-4 times before it'll actually go through (even though you are
entering the same credentials every time).  It is very frustrating.
Upon
examining the logs here is what we are getting:

Aug 21 10:08:04 mail authdaemond: vmysql: sql error[3]: Lost
connection
to
MySQL server during query

Now I know the username/pw work to connect to the database because it
does
eventually auth.  The mysql server is on the same machine as well.
Anybody
have any ideas what this could be indicative of?

Mysql server 4.1.8
Vpopmail 5.4.10


Thanks,
David


I don't use authdaemon, but I saw something on google in the
authdaemonrc file about not having enough authdaemon child processes
causing intermittent auth failures...something to check
