Fail2ban - Postfixadmin Authentication Jail

Quick fix to "Postfixadmin" and a jail for "Fail2ban" to allow fail2ban use.

Edit postfixadmin/login.php (starting @ line 63 or so under Postfix Admin v2.3.8) :

Substitute your location (if an Ubuntu pkg its normally under /usr/share)
sudo nano /var/www/html/postfixadmin/login.php

Add the following lines ONLY and save:
if ($result['rows'] != 1) { $error = 1;

Ubuntu 14.xx/Trusty - Postgrey - startup/init.d

Ubuntu (past/present) has a broken Postgrey SysV /etc/init.d (start(up)/status/stop) file - and possibly will not startup (default install) on a reboot/etc. This will have an ill effect on mail delivery (postfix/etc).

Here is one that works. Make sure you either replace entire file with one below or edit the pertinent lines.

Remember that this is not an upstart override - you are editing a SysV init file directly.

Have moved site to 'cloud' hosting on AWS. Speed should be better...

People who have applied for account

If you applied for an account in the last few months and gave a VALID email address you are now validated. All this really gives you access to is the download area and allows comments in certain places. Sorry it took so long to do this..! If you gave me a bogus email your account went from pending to deleted. Bye.

Added Downloads

Added 'Downloads' link to navigation. (Only registered users will see it..)


Greetings. The old site has now been moved to Drupal.

There will probably be missing pages and bugs. You have been warned. If you see an obvious broken link please alert me.

This is more or less my personal web site/blog/archive etc.
