I keep getting this message when I try to start dovecot using the -F option.
Fatal: open() failed for /var/run/dovecot/login: Permission denied
Checking /var/run/dovecot/login folder permissions does not seem to
indicate anything wrong as root has all the permissions it needs. If I
am not mistaken, dovecot can run as root while in the login directory
When I try to start the dovecot service, it fails with the message:
dovecot dead but subsys locked.
Can anybody help me resolve this issue?
I am running RHEL5.4.
Thanks in advance.
