    I upgraded from plesk 8.1.1 to plesk 8.2 then i saw that my server is not sending/receiving mails, so i decided to reinstall qmail, so i type yum remove qmail, then whole plesk messed up.

    I can't enter to admin panel, it says access denied. Then i decided to reinstall it and at installation it says

    ERROR: It seems that there is group qmail
    in your system. Plesk uses the same group
    name but with another group ID (2520).

    Have you actually done 'yum remove install' to reinstall qmail???? I think you should have done 'yum remove qmail' and then 'yum install qmail' to reinstall qmail. Could be that is the reason of meesup on your box.

    sorry :)

    my friend typed yum remove qmail, then he said plesk got deleted (but it is broken i guess)

    i tried to run psa setup and it give the error above, then i decided to try yum install qmail.

    It said it is completed but when i type service qmail status, it said qmail : unrecognized service.

    Maybe i can install the psa without installing qmail at installation pack but i dont want to remove my current sites actually.

    sorry for my typo..
