The output of the command below shows the following error:
# journalctl -u amavisd
The value of variable $myhostname is “example”, but should have been a fully qualified domain name; perhaps uname(3) did not provide such.
Amavis (the component of Plesk Email Security) requires a hostname configured as FQDN.
- Log into Plesk.
- Go to Tools & Settings > Server Settings.
- In the Full hostname * field specify the FQDN hostname for example as shown below:
- Scroll down and press the OK button to apply the changes.
- Reinstall the Plesk Email Security extension.
Solution using the SSH access
- Log into the server via SSH.
Execute the command below to set FQDN hostname:
# hostnamectl set-hostname example.com
Note: replace the
example.comwith the required FQDN hostname.
Run the commands below one by one to reinstall the Plesk Email Security extension:
# plesk bin extension -u email-security
# plesk bin extension -i email-security
