openemm on debian lenny

Post by bashnia » Tue Nov 10, 2009 10:38 am

Hello, All!
Sorry for my English.
This is how was installed and configured my server, if long - sorry again:
---
1. download of prebuilded vmware image of Debian "Lenny" netinst

http://download.thoughtpolice.co.uk/deb ... ip.torrent

2. configuration of hostname and ip on newly started virtual machine

a) ip - configured via dhcp
b) echo "spnx02" > /etc/hostname
c) vi /etc/hosts

127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 spnx02.domain.com spnx02

d) disable ipv6

vi /etc/modprobe.d/00local

alias net-pf-10 off
alias ipv6 off

e) reboot or write new hostname via sysctl

3. packages:

I prefer classic syslogd:

# apt-get remove rsyslog
# apt-get install sysklogd

installation of necessary packeges:

# apt-get install mysql-server python-mysqldb sendmail chkconfig
# chkconfig sendmail off

turn off sendmail at start - openemm will start it

4. download jre and openemm

jdk-6u17-linux-i586.bin
OpenEMM-6.RC2-bin.tar.gz

5. jdk Installation

# cp jdk-6u17-linux-i586.bin /tmp
# cd /tmp
# chmod u+x jdk-6u17-linux-i586.bin
# ./jdk-6u17-linux-i586.bin
# mkdir -p /opt/openemm.org/software
# mv jdk1.6.0_17 /opt/openemm.org/software
# ln -s jdk1.6.0_17 java
# /opt/openemm.org/software/java/bin/java -version
java version "1.6.0_17"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_17-b04)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 14.3-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

6. openemm installation

# groupadd openemm
# useradd -m -g openemm -d /home/openemm -c "OpenEMM 6.x.y" openemm

# cp OpenEMM-6.RC2-bin.tar.gz /home/openemm/
# cd /home/openemm
# tar xzvpf /home/openemm/OpenEMM-6.RC2-bin.tar.gz
# mkdir -p /usr/share/doc/OpenEMM-6.RC2
# mv USR_SHARE/* /usr/share/doc/OpenEMM-6.RC2

7. syslog

Check /etc/syslog.conf and change the path for the mail log from /var/log/mail.log to /var/log/maillog

vi /etc/cron.weekly/sysklogd
-------------
savelog -g adm -m 640 -u root -c 4 $LOG >/dev/null
change to
savelog -g adm -m 644 -u root -c 4 $LOG >/dev/null
-------------

Change permission for maillog

# /etc/init.d/sysklogd restart
Restarting system log daemon....
# chmod 644 /var/log/maillog

8. mysql

create CMS database:
# mysqladmin -u root -p create openemm_cms
# cd /usr/share/doc/OpenEMM-6.RC2/
# mysql -u root -p openemm_cms < openemm_cms.sql

Create openemm database:
# mysqladmin -u root -p create openemm
redirection and bounce urls
# vi openemm-6.RC2.sql
replace "http://localhost:8080" with "http://spnx02.domain.com:8080"
replace the empty mailloop string '' directly after the redirection url with news.domain.com
# mysql -u root -p openemm < openemm-6.RC2.sql

9. well, let's start openemm
# su - openemm
$ Openemm.sh start
$ netstat -ln

looks good!

10. after login to web-interface everything works fine, cyryllic symbols too.
Note: http://www.openemm.org/wiki/Charsets:UTF-8

12. sendmail configuration:

# netstat -ln
...
tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25
...
Sendmail listen only on 127.0.0.1:25
Let's imroove it

# cd /etc/mail

in sendmail.mc

change
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet, Name=MTA-v4, Port=smtp, Addr=127.0.0.1')dnl
to
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Family=inet, Name=MTA-v4, Port=smtp')dnl

---
Add the following line at the end of the file:

INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`bav', `S=unix:/home/openemm/var/run/bav.sock, F=T')dnl

This will enable the dynamic mail loop required by the bounce management to process delayed bounces.

If file /etc/mail/relay-domains does not exist, create the file - for example by

touch relay-domains

and add a line at the end of the file which specifies your DNS entry for the sender hostname (FQDN). In our example it is

simply:

news.domain.com

Open file /etc/mail/mailertable and add a line at the end which activates the bounce management for that FQDN:

news.domain.com procmail:/home/openemm/conf/bav/bav.rc

----

# make
# su - openemm
$ OpenEMM.sh stop && OpenEMM.sh start
$ netstat -ln
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:25

11. My virtual server is behind main email appliance (smarthost).
So, let's change senmail.mc to use it.
Insert the following line before INPUT_MAIL.FILTER
define(`SMART_HOST',`spmail01.domain.com')dnl

spmail01 was configured to accept mail for news.domain.com and redirect it to spnx01.domain.com.
Also our public DNS was configured with MX record to accept mail for news.domain.com and A record to resolve our public as news.domain.com too.
this is my sendmail.mc on spnx02:

12. tryout emailing

steps:
1) create new campaign = test campaign
2) create new mailinglist = test maillist
3) create 4 recipients as normal users for test maillist, 1 inside my domin.com, 2 in other (public) domains, 1 with fake adress to catch bonces
4) create new template (test template) with sender and reply to email info@news.domain.com
5) create new bounce filter = test bounce filter, auto generated e-mail: ext_1@news.domain.com
6) create new mailing with test template, send

results:
all emails are out and recieved, I can see number of opened mails in statistics tab, well, not bad.
