    Hi all,

    I am just in the process of setting up WHMCS and am trying to setup my support ticketing system. But apparently I need imap for this to work....

    Following a tutorial I created a new file phpinfo.php but received a security warning saying I do not have permission, permission disabled.

    Does anyone know of another way I can check to see if I have imap installed on my cPanel?

    Thanks :)

    If you're using either Dovecot or Courier-IMAP then IMAP should already be enabled. Look in WHM => Service Configuration => Mail Server Configuration. At the top of that screen you should have check boxes enabled for POP, IMAP, etc...

    In addition, you can also try to telnet to localhost on port 143.

    # telnet localhost 143
    You should get a response back, if you do, Imap is installed. If you get connection refused or nothing at all, check your firewall, or check to make sure either Dovecot or Courier-IMAP is running.
