- Plesk 12.5 for Linux
Unable to start 'dovecot' service after Plesk installation:
# /etc/init.d/dovecot start
Starting Dovecot Imap: doveconf: Fatal: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf line 50: ssl_cert: Can't open file /etc/dovecot/private/ssl-cert-and-key.pem: No such file or directory
Original dovecot package was installed before Plesk installation. This is a software issue with internal ID PPPM-3557 . The fix will be included in further Plesk updates.
Reinstall Dovecot switching to Courier and back to Dovecot in Plesk > Tools & Settings > Updates & Upgrades:
Before performing a new Plesk installation, make sure that Dovecot is not installed on the server.
