Postfix and new server

HKLUG’s Alpha DS10 is fucked up. It seems the harddisk is dying. Therefore, I’m trying to migrate every thing out. I have moved the main website and wiki to new niet and spent sometime to migrate the mail services. I decided to use Postfix instead of Exim and try to use MySQL as the forward table. However, the postfix fail to connect MySQL. Finally, I aware that postfix jail some processes under chroot environment and make them unable to access MySQL via Unix socket. After some consideration, I decide to switch on the TCP/IP connection of MySQL but blocking connection from outside via netfilter. Now, it work smoothly.

Today, I also migrate most websites to new niet.
