I have reviewed the code and can't figure it out, and the person who wrote it is no longer involved in the project.

This is one of the reasons WebCit is being rewritten. :(

Subject: Multiple Domains on one Citadel Install

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I have Citadel running on a Raspberry PI for my Dronesforhire.us and it works great.  I would like to add redpugtechsol.com to it as well.  Is that  something Citadel supports and if so the best practice for doing so as well as the certificate?

Thanks.

I keep getting the following in my /var/log/messages:

Jun 23 17:37:04 citadel citserver[52541]: housekeeping: WARNING: housekeeping loop has not run for 9 minutes.  Is something stuck?
Jun 23 17:37:17 citadel syslogd: last message repeated 64 times

I can't do anything! I can't read mail, can't check the outbound SMTP queue, NOTHING!  I can tell it to HALT but then I can't do anything else.  Grrr!  Halp?

I hate when that happens :(

Since I know you have developer skillz, please do this:

Stop citserver and run it in the foreground, in the debugger, with the `-x9` option to turn on maximum debugging to the console. Wait for it to get to the point where it's unhappy, and send a SIGINT with ctrl-c at the keyboard.
Then do `thread apply all bt` at the keyboard and post the output.

There are a bunch of housekeeping tasks and they all run in the same thread.
This will tell us where it's hung up.

Citadel does this exceptionally well. Just add your extra domains to the server and add email addresses within that domain to your user accounts/.

Subject: Issue with Citadel Server on Debian 11.7, BDB0075 DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Re

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hello,

i had an issue with my running citadel server. Server was install and running 3 Month without issue.

The installation is as follow:

OS: Debian 11.7 on Raspberry

Citadel : was install with the easy install script

Installation path /usr/local/citadel

On the installation Path is mounted a USB SSD Disk: mountpoint /usr/local/citadel

Last week i had an iussue with the USB Disk and the citadel folder was empty, with running services.

After stop the services , mount the disk again and start services the issues comes up.

The issues are:

1. Fetchmail can't deliver mails to smtp service:

fetchmail: Connection errors for this poll:
name 0: connection to localhost:smtp [::1/25] failed: Connection refused.
name 1: connection to localhost:smtp [127.0.0.1/25] failed: Connection refused.
fetchmail: SMTPconnect to localhost failed

2.Login as user is possible but it takes a long time and sometime it broken with message to contact system administor. ( :-D that's me  )

  If i try to send a mail ( internal or external ) the Message " Failure: [object Object]" pop's up.


3. No errors are found in logfiles !

   Only the following is found in syslog:

It looks like that there is an issue with the DB, right ?

How can i fix it, or can find better the issue to fix ?

Sounds like your system had a bad day. Run the `database_cleanup` script and you should be fine.

Why are you running fetchmail? Citadel has mail fetching built in.

Subject: Keying Global email aliases

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I am unable to find clear documentation regarding how to key Global email aliases.  The left field is for the alias and the right field is for the "actual" email address?  So:

 

alias1@mydomain.com  jay@mydomain.com

alias2@mydomain.com  jay@mydomain.com

OR should it instead be

alias1@mydomain.com  myloginid

alias2@mydomain.com  myloginid

OR

Should it be something else?  I look forward to your feedback.

Hi, thanks for the hint with the database_cleanup. How can i use the fetchmail in citadel ?



[#] Tue Jun 27 2023 12:24:06 EDT from LadySerenaKitty

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

To use Citadel's fetchmail:

Edit /etc/mail/mailer.conf

Replace all instances of "/usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail" with the location of citmail, this should be "/usr/local/citadel/citmail".

Now every script that uses "sendmail" will actually use citmail, no need to update any of your scripts.

Subject: problem with connect to citadel server

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

for two months, the citadel server worked without any problems, while as of today it refused to serve. The problem that occurs is:

 

1. webcit does not work, it pops up a message "This program was unable to connect or stay connected to the Citadel server. Please report this problem to your system administrator." After a few page refreshes "0 Received unexpected answer from Citadel server; bailing out."

 

2. Occasionally, the login page will surprise, while after entering login credentials, we are back to step 1 again.

 

3. i added citadel mailbox to outlook, previously it worked without any problems, until today. 

 

Citadel is installed via docker, I have already done ubuntu update & upgrade, docker upgrade and citadel install itself from docker.

 

Do you have any ideas perhaps? Thanks in advance 

Greetings,

Sebastian

I am unable to find clear documentation regarding how to key Global
email aliases.  The left field is for the alias and the right field
is for the "actual" email address?  So:

You can put in anything, but the right side is usually the name of an account on the system without any domain name attached to it.

You don't have to use fetchmail with Citadel.

Go to to the "Advanced" tab in your account and configure "remote retrieval"

You can put in any number of remote POP and/or IMAP email accounts. Citadel will periodically scan those remote mailboxes and pull in new messages.

Replace all instances of "/usr/libexec/sendmail/sendmail" with the
location of citmail, this should be "/usr/local/citadel/citmail".

That is correct, but I believe the OP was trying to pull in mail from external accounts, rather than deliver mail from scripts.

For outbound mail I like to use "nullmailer" and configure it with the identity of a real Citadel account. This has the added benefit that it doesn't have to run on the same host as the Citadel server.

Okay so I have a different issue.  I resolved by rebuilding the database, but now I has another issue.

I am receiving mails, but in webcit they are completely blank and in my mail clients, my inbox is empty.  I currently have over 200 messages in there.  I ran /usr/local/ctdlsupport/bin/db_verify and this is the result:

db_verify: BDB0522 Page 0: metadata page corrupted
db_verify: BDB0523 Page 0: could not check metadata page
db_verify: log.0000000001: BDB0090 DB_VERIFY_BAD: Database verification failed
BDB5105 Verification of log.0000000001 failed.

How do I fix these issues?

Ah, you know what ... NEVERMIND.  Restored original database from backup and started citserver with port 25 firewalled, somehow that made it not crashy.

After setting auto-purge to forget all messages over 100 days old, my message count dropped immensely and I re-opened port 25.  No issues since, it's running smoothly.

Subject: Re: Citadel stopped working after Ubuntu release upgrade

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Eventually resolved it by using Easy Install. Apparently the Citadel version in the distro (917-4) has an issue. Installing 972 through Easy Install made averything work again.

Mon Apr 03 2023 12:37:10 EDT from IGnatius T Foobar Subject: Re: Citadel stopped working after Ubuntu release upgrade

You might try deleting all those old sysvinit scripts. Citadel has been using systemd natively for some time now.

It could be that it's getting started up wrong.

And if that doesn't fix it, you might also try ditching the Easy Install distribution entirely and just running the Docker container.
