    Hello guys,

    This is my first post here so I would like to say hello to everyone :)

    I have a problem with one of my servers. I have a parked domain and I want to set up a email forwarder (user@parkeddomain.com to user@actualdomain.com), but the server throws me this:

    Could not open “/etc/vdomainaliases/parkeddomain.com” for writing: Permission denied

    I've checked and it seems like the /etc/vdomainaliases is root owned, so I can't change it from my user level account using cPanel? Is there a way to do it with WHM?

    Thanks a lot,

    L

    Hello :)

    Please try running the following command to see if it corrects the permission issues:

    Code:
    /scripts/fixvaliases
    If the issue persists, check that the /etc/vdomainaliases directory uses 0711 permissions. The files within this directory should have 0640 permissions with ownership set to "$user:mail".

    Thank you.
