Beginner Configuration

Post by Francus » Sat Feb 08, 2014 11:39 am

This is the first time is set up a server. So forgive me. I am already proud that openemm is installed and I can login.

I have a shared webserver, let me call it WS.org and a VPS mailserver, let me call it 94.20.40.200. Openemm is installed in 94.20.40.200.

My question is about three strings I have to use according to the excellent installation manual.
What I should place for news.openemm.org, for http://localhost:8080 (to set up the OpenEMM database from scratch), for http://www.openemm.org:8080 (6.3 of the manual: Basic configuration) and for news@news.openemm.org (bounce management with autoresponder). Also I am confused about the DNS entries for asynchronous bounce management.

Regarding the three strings, I tried to use the following:
for news.openemm.org used mail.WS.org
for http://localhost:8080 used http://WS.org:8080 (database)
for http://www.openemm.org:8080 used http://94.20.40.200:8080 (basic configuration)

Regarding the DNS, the defaults settings of WS.org (NOT of 94.20.40.200 where I have openemm installation) are the following, where priority for A records is not available:

Code: Select all

A        host           ttl           points to              outcome
          www         86400          90.90.90.9          http://www.WS.org
          @             900          90.90.90.9                 WS.org

MX     host             ttl     priority        points to            outcome
           @            900       10           mx1.hostcompany.com    WS.org
           @            900       20           mx2.hostcompany.com    WS.org
I am thinking to change it as follows:

Code: Select all

A        host          ttl           points to          outcome
         www          86400           90.90.90.9        http://www.WS.org
                      86400         94.20.40.200
        hostx         86400         94.20.40.200
        mail          86400         94.20.40.200
        mail.WS.org   86400         94.20.40.200
          @             900           90.90.90.9            WS.org

MX       host      ttl  priority    points to             outcome
     mail.WS.org   900     10     hostx.WS.org
           @       900     10     mx1.hostcompany.com      WS.org
           @       900     20     mx2.hostcompany.com      WS.org
But do not know if this is correct? Any idea?

So many thanks for providing openemm and manuals and for any attention. Also, if you want to charge something for helping me, I am willing to pay, just let me know.
