courier init script

Reported by: bdubbs@… Owned by: blfs-book@…
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: Bootscripts Version: ~CVS
Severity: normal Keywords:


Transfer from LFS

include a init script for courier rather than using the one included with the package. See the BLFS book for the symlinks.

To whoever is creating the script this needs to be added to the start of courier before any initialization.

rm /var/lib/courier/allfilters/*

I small bug when using filters, if the system is not properly shutdown courier will fail to receive email because courier filter couldn't start since there was files in /var/lib/courier/allfilters

Moved to bootscripts component. Also, a lot has changed in courier; the mentioned script is hopelessly out of date. I'll be putting together a new mailserver soon, and writing a new script then. As far as the book is concerned, change permissions in the generic bootscript and run the script once from in the package source directory. Unless there are changes that I'm unaware of, that script is how a lot of the initial configuration is done (ssl generated, directories and statefiles created, etc.)
