Since this is a tip listed in Affa documentation, it may be helpful to explore the problem I have encountered. I did exactly as suggested and set up the new server identically to the old one, copied over my setup.pl fie to root from the archives and the archives to /var/affa. After the rise command was finished I could get to the webpage but NOT login to any of the users. All the appropriate files seemed to be restored to their proper locations.
1. I CAN login to the root via putty.
2. I CAN login to the server-manager (even tried changing a password)
3. I CANNOT log into webmail as admin or any other user though they show in server-manager.
4. Quota page shows all mail amount as zero even though you can see the messages are there and contain information using the command line to go to /home/e-smith/files/users....
Is there a password file, SSL issue or such that is preventing me from validating a password? Somehow the server-manager doesn't seem to record the restored file sizes in the quota section.
