    Hi all,

    OK I've searched the web high and low for SpamAssassin help. I found a number of ways of installing it using .tar.gz in putty, followed by a number of commands. Some sort of yum repos or something. All sorts of difficult techincal stuff.

    But I figure there must be a simple solution using Plesk.

    I have just upgraded my Plesk v 7.5.4 so that when I look at the License Management the "Ability to use SpamAssassin" is turned on.

    So I figure all I need to do is add a new application package in the Application Vault. My problem is what SpamAssassin file do I need to upload. I've tried the files Mail-SpamAssassin-3.1.7.tar.gz and Mail-SpamAssassin-3.1.7.zip and also the install file. None of it works!

    Am I being Naive? What do I need to do to get SpamAssassin working. (Questions on how to use it may follow).

    Thanks,
    Travis

    Hello,

    You need to go here:

    ftp://download1.swsoft.com/Plesk/

    choose the right package of plesk and untar it.

    Search for the package psa-spamassasin.

    install it with rpm -Uvh psa-spamassassin.xxx


    Bottom line:

    You need two spamassassin packages :

    spamassassin > installed as rpm !!
    psa-spamassassin > installed from the plesk package.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot, this is definitely putting me on the right track.

    However I have some more problems. I'm not sure of my version of redhat in terms of the files available.

    I know it's Red Hat Fedora Core 2. Is that the same as RedHatEL2.1 in the ftp://download1.swsoft.com/Plesk/Plesk7.5/ directory, or is there a command in plesk or putty that will tell me the right version. Maybe it's not that important, I'm not sure.

    When I download the file is there a way to untar it in windows. I don't think I want to unload the whole file in UNIX do I?

    If I can separate the two files I need how do I get them on to my server. I have a very basic knowledge of UNIX using putty. What would I need to type in and how would I get it in the right place on the server?

    Thanks again for your help.

    Hello,

    From putty as root do the following:

    cat /etc/redhat-release
    You will see the Os from here

    and

    uname -a
    You'l see if it is on 64 bit or not.


    Rhel is red hat enterptise linux

    If you have fedora core 2 you should choose:

    FedoraC2

    Hi,

    Sorry I'm getting there but you really need to give me some step-by step instructions.

    I know have the file psa-spamassassin-7.5.4-fc2.build75060617.18.i586.rpm

    and I can access the other file at

    ftp://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/fedora/2/en/i386/RPMS.dag/spamassassin-3.0.6-1.fc2.rf.i386.rpm

    From putty how do I ftp the file into my server, and at what place do I store it.

    How do I get the psa file installed in plesk. I tried adding it using the Application Vault but it didn't recognise the file. Can I install both files through putty?

    Thanks,
    Trav

    Hi me again,

    I've now got the spamassassin-3.0.6-1.fc2.rf.i386.rpm in the $HOME directory of my server.

    When I run rpm I get the following error.

    [pouletmaison@Poulet-Maison pouletmaison]$ rpm -i spamassassin-3.0.6-1.fc2.rf.i386.rpm
    /etc/security/selinux/file_contexts: No such file or directory
    warning: spamassassin-3.0.6-1.fc2.rf.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6
    error: can't create transaction lock

    I also can't load the psa file into plesk.

    Thanks,
    Travis

    I don't know how to log into the root you need to give me more information.

    I'm not sure I can anyway as this is a virtual dedicated server.

    Thanks,
    Travis
