Hello,

I've installed cPanel on two VPS's (both different providers) and I'm still noticing that two services (Named & IMAP) are failing at startup. I opened chkconfig --list and noticed both of the services are switched off. My question is are they meant to be switched off by default? :confused:

Cheers

Which specific services are off? named should be on, but there are a few different IMAP services that may be installed on a Red Hat/CentOS server. Are you using Courier-IMAP or Dovecot?

Either Courier-IMAP or Dovecot, as well as named, should be set to start in runlevel 3, as in this case:

Code:
# chkconfig --list named
named          	0:off	1:off	2:off	3:on	4:on	5:on	6:off
# chkconfig --list dovecot
dovecot        	0:off	1:off	2:on	3:on	4:on	5:on	6:off
You did not mention which IMAP service you had checked with chkconfig, so I just wanted to clarify that only Courier-IMAP or Dovecot, but no other IMAP service that may be installed, should be set to start on boot.

My VPS had dovecot and named installed and it was configured to not start at boot by default. Once I installed cPanel it detected that dovecot was installed and set it to the default mail server option. All I had to do was select the mail server Courier at cPanel setup. As for named I just turned it on at chkconfig.

Thanks for your help anyway :D
