Description

hi,

i really need your help. i know there is explanations on the wiki but
i
didn't understood them well.
postfix has is own user (for example titi).
one another user run apache and can launch trac-admin(for example
toto).
root can launch trac-admin too(for example tutu).
i created an alias in /etc/aliases for toto to launch email2trac
directly por the project toto. this file is owned by tutu in 644
rights
when i launch the test in tutu user and give the project toto in
argument, with the example mail it works.
when in user tutu i send the example by mail to toto, it doesnt work
and
i have this error in syslog :

Aug 28 17:52:34 crewhub email2trac: IOError: [Errno 13] Permission
denied: '/home/toto/www/trac/VERSION'
Aug 28 17:53:45 crewhub email2trac: Traceback (most recent call last):

fd = open(os.path.join(self.path, 'VERSION'), 'r')


Do you have an idea of misconfiguration ?
Can you give me a procedure to make it works ?

i wait for your answer. thanx a lot.

comment:4 Changed 14 years ago by bas

  • Status changed from new to assigned

Denis,

first of all how did yoy build the package? with configure or the debian way? Are the MTA_USER and the TRAC_USER defaults oke for your installation. if not you have to use the command line options in configure, eg:

./configure --with-mta_user=titi --with_trac_user=apache_userid

If you use run_email2trac in your /etc/aliases file is has to be suid root. When i read the error message it means it does not have the right permissions. Just read the documentation carefully for instalation and email configuration. It is all there

Good luck

comment:5 Changed 14 years ago by anonymous

i configured it in the debian way. do i have options to past when i build the package ? my MTA_USER is postfix (i think it's the default) but TRAC_USER is custom.

what is your best advice ? keep run_email2trac in a postfix alias file ?

thanx for your answers and your time.

comment:6 Changed 14 years ago by anonymous

my trac version is 0.10.3 and i use email2trac 0.10

comment:7 Changed 14 years ago by anonymous

oh sorry... i just seen the mta-user was nobody... i will try to do a manual configure or midfy the build-package.

comment:8 Changed 14 years ago by bas

oke, you can also edit the debian/rules file and add:

DEB_CONFIGURE_EXTRA_FLAGS := --enable-python --with-trac_user=<apache_user_id> --with-mta-user=<mat_user_id>

Just follow the test procedure in the email configuration wiki page. I use run_email2trac in /etc/aliases

comment:9 Changed 14 years ago by anonymous

hi again,

i made the debian package with the right users. i use this line in my /etc/aliases : ticket: |"/usr/bin/run_email2trac --project=myproject"

the command email2trac --project=myproject function and create the ticket

when i do a "mail ticket < msg.txt" i don't have an error anymore in trac.log but i receive a mail like that :

The mail system

<ticket@…> (expanded from <ticket>): Command died with status

any idea oh what's going on ?

comment:10 Changed 14 years ago by anonymous

the command "email2trac --project=myproject < msg.txt " work and create the ticket (orry for teh error in the message before

comment:11 Changed 14 years ago by bas

If i read the source of run_email2trac.c:

  if ( caller !=  MTA->pw_uid ) {
    if ( DEBUG ) printf("Invalid caller UID (%d)\n",caller);
    return -2;     /* 254 : Invalid caller */
  }

The user you configured for MTA is wrong.

Denis,

Just do a simple test:

  • edit /etc/aliases and add bas: |"/var/tmp/test"
  • vi /var/tmp/test
    #!/bin/sh
    
    /usr/bin/id > /var/tmp/postfix_id
    
  • chmod 755 /var/tmp/test
  • mail bas
  • cat /var/tmp/postfix_id

Hope this helps

comment:15 Changed 14 years ago by anonymous

cat /tmp/postfix_id uid=65534(nobody) gid=65534(nogroup) groups=65534(nogroup)
