[SM-USERS] I still could not log in squirrel webmail

Yavuz Maslak-5
Hello
 
there is already a file called default_pref in Squirrel webmail server.
Also I had a look at the docs about that.  
 
ls -l /var/spool/squirrelmail/pref/default_pref
-rwx------  1 www  www  49 Oct 20 15:47 /var/spool/squirrelmail/pref/default_pref
 
 
Perhaps it may be help you I installed squirrel as first There was no problem I could log in webmail .
But After I reinstall it I stareted to get an error as following;
 
Error opening ../data/default_pref
Default preference file not found or not readable!
Please contact your system administrator and report this error

Run conf.pl in the squirrelmail config directory and point the preference
dir to /var/spool/squirrelmail/pref/default_pref instead of ../data

Ehm correction, /var/spool/squirrelmail/pref (without default_pref)

Is your web server running as the user www?  Have you tried changing the
permission on the files/folders to ensure that everybody has read/write
access as a test?

  find /var/spool/squirrelmail -type d -exec chmod a+rwx {} \;
  find /var/spool/squirrelmail -type f -exec chmod a+rw {} \;
  chmod a+rwx /var/spool/squirrelmail

You have been asked several times for various pieces of information.  If
we do not get those, we simply cannot help you.  Starting a new email
thread every time does not help either.  Please keep it all under one
thread.  If you do not help us, we cannot help you.  Please see the
posting guidelines for information we need to start off with, then read
the responses people have given you and provide information you have been
asked for.  If you do not provide the information, and continue to keep
posting like this, I will be forced to remove you.

If there is a problem accessing /var/spool.... I believe SM will still
try to default back to ../data, thus you still get that error message
even when you data_dir points elsewhere -- this is a common point of
confusion for people posting on the lists, and possibly something we
could change.

As for the OP, he could double-check the data_dir setting and then first
try with chmod 0777 to make sure the file is even being seen, then
remove permissions until the problem is cornered.
