I need someone to fix my qmail settings on my virtual dedicated server.
A few days ago I received this email message from my hosting provider.
Our server administrators discovered an issue on your myserver server. Multiple qmail processes were causing unacceptable high loads on the host node. You will need to correct the issue behind the high load, leave qmail disabled, or move to a full dedicated server. Please let us know if you have any further questions, comments, or concerns.
After I received that message, all of the incoming and outgoing email stopped.
I had a friend try to look into it. He found out that qmail was disabled and he could not enable it again. He changed some settings but was unable to ever get qmail working.
I just spoke to tech support and they said my mail directory permissions were incorrectly set up and they need to be changed.
I need someone who knows qmail to change the directory permissions, get qmail service back running and also figure out why it was stopped in the first place, what caused the high loads on the host node, and what can be done to make sure this never happens again.
Should be a simple job.
I have a Linux server so you will also use the su - root command to gain root access to the server.
