b3 easyfound not working

Post by josvergeer » 21 Nov 2018, 05:31

I had a crash on my b3. An electric problem.
After installing the B3 again. the Easyfound option was not working anymore.
What did i wrong? Or is there something else going on.
Thank you.

The original Excito installation?

AFAIK you should be able to just pick up where you left by restoring easyfind.conf. If you do not have a backup of that file you can edit it and put `enable = yes` in it. Then run `<web_admin_path>/easyfind.pl getname` to retrieve the remaining data.

Unsure about where everything used to be. I think it was:
- /etc/network/easyfind.conf
- /usr/lib/web-admin/easyfind.pl


An alternative that should also work is to use the web frontend and set a different name for easyfind than you were previously using. Once that is accepted you can set it back to the original name.

I have changed mine ip adress to the old one as statistic and it works well again.
Thank you for your messages.
But no i have a problem with Horde.
I can send mail but i don't receive mail.
I get a message from fetch mail.
"Fetchmail could not get mail from XXXXXX@hetnet.nl@b3.localdomain."
Does anyone know how to set up the fetchmail service?

I have heard that the fetchmail option is moved from " Horde" .
Thanks in advance.
Jos

Horde is just for web mail and -calendar. It has no relation to fetchmail.

Fetchmail config through the B3 web admin front-end seems pretty straight-forward. Don't know why it would append the local domain to whatever you entered there. Of course if you feel comfortable enough to get on the command line of the B3 you could just manually edit the config file.

I have fixed it.
The DNS adress was not correct.
Thank you anyway.
