There has been many changes to PKGBUILD. Lots of clean up and updates.

Please test and report if any issue.(version 1.831-7)

PS: We now also have usermin AUR package in case anyone is interested.

Webmin now uses standard PAM authentication instead of copying crypt from shadow file. Hence makes it more secure and flexible.

Also restriction of access only from is removed. (Otherwise whole purpose of webmin is lost). Your firewall should have port 10000 closed anyway. Please configure your firewall if you want to allow access remotely.

Yes, you're right - changing CRAM-MD5 to Plain fixed the problem! Thanks!

And is it possible (maybe in the future) to add the feature like "Software Package Updates" with the e-mail notifications? Cause it's very useful for updating the server (that I have on debians).

I looked at the webmin code. By default it uses CRAM-MD5. (which seems to be issue here)

Have you tried setting "SMTP authentication method" in module config to "Plain"?

Or why dont you set - "Send mail using" to "Mail server program" (which will use local mail program instead of SMTP server)

Also error is related to client side SASL not server side. Which means my previous suggestion about /etc/sasl2/Sendmail.conf would not work. As they are for server side SASL.

I have webmins on debian servers and all is fine. The trouble is in the Arch version. SMTP server is only sendmail (from aur), saslauthd.service is active and running. I leave only one line in file /etc/sasl2/Sendmail.conf - pwcheck_method:saslauthd - the same error. Thanks anyway..

You are mixing everything. Do you have smtp server setup? (like posix, sendmail?)

If using sendmail then u need to create a file /etc/sasl2/Sendmail.conf containing only one line: (and also have saslauthd server running)

Please ask further questions in "Arch" or "webmin" forums. This is wrong place for obtaining support and most likely not related to webmin but more likely your wrong SMTP configuration.

So, I installed sendmail from aur, create a file in /etc/sasl2/ (I copied it from /etc/webmin and I tried to copy from /etc/mail/) - the same error =(

amish commented on 2017-05-22 13:10

You need to create /etc/sasl2/Sendmail.conf (with S capital)

Note that sendmail does not come with normal Arch - so above may not be applicable in your case unless you have installed sendmail via AUR.

Regarding 2nd question - yes its disabled - as otherwise it will overwrite packaged files and pacman will start complaining.

@amish - In "Mail Settings" I see "Mail server: Sendmail". I don't have /etc/sasl2/, Sendmail's config is only in /etc/webmin/sendmail. I added pwcheck_method:saslauthd there, but still get an error.

@amish - and by the way - Is it normal that I dont see "Software Package Updates" and "Software Packages" in the webmin menu?

amish commented on 2017-05-20 02:26

@flash - question is probably not related to packaging.

For sendmail you probably need to add this to /etc/sasl2/Sendmail.conf


For postfix (not sure) but may be same need to be placed in /etc/postfix/sasl/smtpd.conf

I suggest you to ask in webmin forum.

I have a trouble with the smtps:
sending failed : No SASL mechanism found. at /opt/webmin/mailboxes/ line 964.
I'm installed:
# pacman -Qs sasl
local/cyrus-sasl 2.1.26-10
Cyrus saslauthd SASL authentication daemon
local/libsasl 2.1.26-11
Cyrus Simple Authentication Service Layer (SASL) Library
local/perl-authen-sasl 2.16-2
Perl/CPAN Module Authen::SASL : SASL authentication framework

What's wrong?
