Postfix Fix File Permissions Plesk SMTP Postfix-Script Postdrop
This tutorial will teach you how to Postfix Fix File Permissions Plesk SMTP Postfix-Script Postdrop but it’ll work for all SMTP Postfix permissions, as the command is postfix set-permissions
This fix postfix permission tutorial was written using CentOS converted to CloudLinux running Parallels Plesk Panel 12 in VMWare ESXi.
I kept getting this error in /var/log/maillog
postfix/postfix-script warning: not set-gid or not owner+group+world executable: /usr/sbin/postdrop
I searched Google for a very long, long time on how to Postfix Fix File Permissions but none of the posts I read while searching Google for fixes didn’t work. Even though everything seemed to be working this one error kept annoying me while digging through postfix log files to see what’s going on. I got the this error every time in terminal I typed:
I would keep getting the not set-gid or not owner+group+world executable: /usr/sbin/postdrop error.
When I was checking out what other commands postfix has I saw that if you start typing postfix and keep hitting tab that to show what other commands it can run. I noticed there was a command for postfix set-permissions so I gave it a try and BOOM! It worked! After searching for hours, maybe days I should of just did some good ole sysadmining before I even started searching Google for a fix. Anyways, I hope this fix works for your postfix problems.
Postfix Fix Privileges Postfix Permissions Command
Explaining on how to fix this problem. I tried probably close to 40 different tutorials on how to fix postfix permissions on CentOS for Parallels Plesk Panel. I was changing permissions, changing users, changing groups and everything that was said. Still, I would always still get this error. so I hope this helps everyone else out there that might be having postfix smtp problems.
