    I decided for me to not invest any more energy into this, the last time was just not worth it and unnecessarily extended the unavoidable death of the software. I will migrate to something other like mail-in-a-box , mailcow or so and some and hand crafted container for bit of webstuff I run.

    I found a bug in "imscp/gui/public/client/subdomain_edit.php" - when editing a subdomain alias (e.g. change to redirection in the panel, in my case) I got an server error

    The column "subdomain_wildcard_alias" is mispelled on line 386, it has to be "subdomain_alias_wildcard_alias"

    see the diff here:…e74c5b47bb4ae9e11fb71ef90

    @lestatminiyo ATM i dont know what the installer options do exactly, i have to find out later when i have access to my imscp environment. maybe you are faster to tell what they are supposed to do?

    What where your steps before you got this error? When i upgraded my imscp installation I had to disable all ssl certificates i added before to go through the upgrade process without an error.

    One thing I havent tested before but I notice now: My dovecot login fails now with the error

    1. dovecot: imap-login: Error: Failed to initialize SSL server context: Can't load DH parameters (ssl_dh setting): error:1408518A:SSL routines:ssl3_ctx_ctrl:dh key too small: user│...

    But it seems that can be easely fixed:…server-context-cant-load/

    Update 1:

    And there seems to be some options get depricated soon

    1. dovecot: config: Warning: NOTE: You can get a new clean config file with: doveconf -Pn > dovecot-new.conf │
    2. dovecot: config: Warning: Obsolete setting in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf:175: ssl_protocols has been replaced by ssl_min_protocol

    This could also be fixed easy (…laced-by-ssl-min-protocol), just delete the line with ssl_protocols in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and add the line

    ssl_min_protocol = TLSv1.2

    Update 2:

    SpamAssassin Plugin misses a column

    1. spamd[1457]: auto-whitelist: sql-based get_addr_entry [email protected]|none: SQL error: Unknown column 'msgcount' in 'field list' │
    2. spamd[1457]: auto-whitelist: sql-based add_score/update 1|-1|[email protected]|[email protected]|none: SQL error: Unknown column 'msgcount' in 'field list'[

    seems to be this bug:

    Can be solved with adding the column as mentioned

    1. $ mysql imscp_spamassassin -e "alter table awl add msgcount int(11);"

    Update 3:

    When receiving a mail, i get a permission denied error from dovecot

    1. postfix/pipe[8047]: 18CF4C0DA1: to=<[email protected]>, relay=dovecot, delay=0.39, delays=0.27/0/0/0.11, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered via dovecot service (lda([email protected]): Error: net_connect_unix(/run/dovecot/stats-writer) failed: Permission den))

    I have tried to delete it, that havent worked. Also giving the user dovecot the ownership of this file didnt worked either.

    Putting an additional service definition into dovecot.conf and specifying the permissions did the trick (

    1. service stats {
    2. unix_listener stats-writer {
    3. mode = 0666
    4. }
    5. }

    Update 4:

    Also when receiving a mail, I get errors from dovecat that a sieve folder cannot be found

    1. dovecot: imap([email protected])<169859><Funnyrandomstring>: Error: stat(/var/mail/virtual/ failed: Not a directory

    I found this maillisting entry

    but for now I havent dove deeper into it :)

    Thanks @joximu and all others that have worked on to get i-mscp maintenance branch working on debian 10/11.

    Today I upgraded my i-mscp 1.5.3 debian 9 installation (i know, quite late) and after a bit fiddeling around i came out with following steps for a smooth upgrade:

    0. Make a backup of your host!

    1. git clone joxis branch and to commented

    2. (optional if you DONT use letsencrypt) edit…0e66d66ffccb7bdb622405969 (Background LetsEncrypt - SSL certificate is not valid )

    3. Remove your SSL certificate youve entered with the panel for your aliasses and (sub)domains.

    In my case i used letsencrypt - but without the plugin. that caused me into some issues, so i had to disable all ssl certificates in the panel to get a working upgrade

    4. disable all plugins you have active.

    same as for the ssl certificates. after the upgrade, the plugins (clamav, spamassassin, opendkim, mailgraph, PolicydSPF, ServerDefaultPage) worked all fine again and the dkim keys didnt changed :)

    5. dist-upgrade your machine to buster

    6. dist-upgrade after you rebooted the machine to bullseye

    7. now run the installer script:

    1. perl imscp-autoinstall -d -r

    just go through the installer, change the PHP version to a more recent one, and dont get confused when the installer wants to create a new admin account, just let it creating it.

    8. installer should be ran through without errors.

    9. reboot

    10. enable ssl certificates for your domains and aliasses

    11. enable your plugins

    after the upgrade spamassassin plugin was crying that "WEBMAIL_PACKAGES" was not found in /etc/imscp/imscp.conf

    depending which webmailer you choose, enter it. for my installation i had to add following line before activating it

    1. WEBMAIL_PACKAGES = Rainloop

    12. Youre done! 🥳

    Maybe this will help somebody. Everyone who reads this and still runs a debian 9 installation, Please upgrade now! Debian 9 is EOL since 06/2022

    thanks a million , exactly what i was looking for! actually im upgrading my installation from debian 9 (bit too late, i know ^^) to 10 and hopefully to 11 :) Will also try getting your fork working on my setup :)

    I'm also hopefully waiting for an update but for now i have the feeling I have to hack around myself to get the latest i-mscp running on debian 11.

    If I'm doing so, I will let you know here and share the results

    Maybe this link will help you AlexSwamp

    it would be interesting whats in your error log file.

    another often failure point are file permissions - have you checked them for roundcube?

    this tip will not help you with roundcube but may give you a working webmailer. Switch to rainloop mail - I did it because it's for me the better choice and updating the version which came with imscp is pretty easy and straight forward to the rainloop documentation.
