It looks like things have changes a lot of places in RHEL/CentOS 6. I'll
talk a bit about Dovecot at the moment. They are running Dovecot ver. 2.0.
They have moved the main config file to /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
Further, most of the configuration is via includes, much like Apache.
So, there is a /etc/dovecot/conf.d directory which contains a number of
My idea here for Webmin is to do something like what is done with the
Apache module... (yes, I do like to do these configurations by hand...
direct editing). If you go to 'Edit Config File' in the Apache module,
there is a pull down which lists *.conf files and one can select the
file to edit. It sure would be nice if this was added to the Dovecot
There seems to be 22 files in the /etc/dovecot/conf.d/ directory. The
main ones are .conf files. At the moment, there are 13 .conf files and
then 9 .conf.ext files. It looks like each of these .conf.ext files are
authentication methods and are available to use as includes in the
10-auth.conf file. I suppose being able to edit both file extension
types would be the best solution?
I suppose this change in Dovecot might have the standard Webmin
interface a bit broken under 6?
