Tearing my HAIR out with PLESK Issues

    I've been with PLESK since 2.5

    I'm getting default language errors that prevent me from opening PLESK (even though the only locale in the PSA database is en-US, and it is set as the default already)

    and now i'm getting qmail start errors, and guess what? PLESK doesn't provide ANY LOGGING or error information at all.

    This is how moronic PLESK is. Get a load of this:

    It is not error but just warning and you can ignore it. What is wrong with qmail? Did you checked /usr/local/psa/var/log/maillog ? What is wrong there?
    Also you can completely reinstall qmail with something like:

    And then install it back with

    What I posted above was the same result of me removing and reinstalling PLESK many times.

    What result? Warning? Once again - IT CAN BE IGNORED. How it breaks mailserver operation? Could you please provide any errors from maillog if there is something wrong with qmail operation?

    It can't just be ignored... qmail doesn't start

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/qmail start comes back with a FAILED

    Funny thing is, mail is working

    However

    [root@ursaminor ~]# service qmail status
    qmail-send is stopped
    [root@ursaminor ~]#




    Is this just a problem with the INIT script?

    Strange. Never heard about this problem for many years of work with Plesk...
    I can suggest you try to switch from Qmail to Postfix MTA and back. Also you can try to find a reason with strace utility with something like:

    and then try to find something suspicious or some errors in strace.log file. Reinstalling with force psa-qmail package also can help.

    Ive seen that mailmng error pop up when glibc was rootkitted. Did anything strange happen on the box in the days preceding the problems you're running in to?
