Attempting to login to openwebmail returns error message:
Set effective gid to mail(6) failed!
I have three machines, all have this behaviour since about 3 months ago.
In all cases, machines are running 11.3-RELEASE
Machine 'a' is running 11.3 32 bit (on 64 bit hardware). Publicly accessible
as mail.casano.com. 11.3-RELEASE-p3 kernel, p4 userland
Machine 'b' is running 11.3 64 bit. 11.3-RELEASE-p3 kernel, p4 userland
Machine 'c' is a VM I built 20 minutes ago. It runs 11.3 64 bit on an
Ubuntu Linux host. That machine has only the minimum installed on it
to test openwebmail:
and whatever else was dragged in by installing that stuff.
That machine has not been updated using freebsd-update. It is running
the vm image as distributed from freebsd.org.
To replicate the bug:
fresh 11.3-RELEASE install
pkg install apache24
pkg install openwebmail
configure apache24 so cgi works; change default cgi-bin directory to
/usr/local/www/cgi-bin (from default /usr/local/www/apache24/cgi-bin)
user adduser to create one or more user accounts.
open web browser to the openwebmail login page
attempt to login one of the user accounts.
2019 11 19: I just repeated the experiment using 12.1-RELEASE running in a VM. Fresh install, with just apache24 and openwebmail and two (empty) user accounts.
Exact same failure as with 11.3-RELEASE.
I'll take a look.
