COMMAND TO INSTALL POSTAL CANNOT BE RESOLVED
Thank you for the wonderful tutorials. They are a life saver.
I cannot get past the COMMAND INSTALLATION STAGE.
Command I typed is - curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/atech/postal/master/script/install/ubuntu1604.sh | sh
But it said "Could not resolve host: raw.githubusercontent.com"
I purchased my vps from domains4bitcoin.
Please provide up to date command to run in putty so I can build my own smtp server.
The command must work friend, can you please check again.
Install Ubuntu 16.04 OS first on your VPS and then try to run this command because Postal SMTP can only be Installed on Ubuntu 16.04
So postal will not work at all with other Ubuntu versions ?
No Friend, postal works well on 18.04 as well.
Go with 1804 friend.
Okay Assuming the issue is with Ubuntu 16 that I have installed on the VPS.
Is there any guarantee I will not experience any issues with Ubuntu 18?
Also, I purchased the VPS with Ubuntu 16, so I may have to discuss with the service provider to allow for upgrade.
Ideally what I would have loved is to reach an agreement with someone to help do the whole setup on my Remote Desktop and just give me the password and username to login while I pay for the setup services and possibly make a donation as a form of gratitude to this person for his or her service in helping to set the process up.
All website is already done- Would be insane to rebuild everything again... Damn if I would know this before, there are too many factors. In other words you have to be nearly guru to know everything what's working and what piece of software compatible with Operating System or conflicts with other soft and so on... :/
If you use Contabo you can login to your account and reinstall another Ubuntu version yourself- you don't need any advice from hosting provider.
Biggest pain is to rebuild everything from the ground again...
Hey Hasan, it doesn't work.
I have generated IPs from Contabo and Digitalocean and tried to configure Postal. I have followed your tutorial, step by step, on Video and Blog-Post and seen other tutorials on this, But nothing works. There's an Error that has accured 🙁
It seems like this problem has acquired in late January 2021. Please, is there any solution to this. Can you research and create a video or blog post about this. Or at least a reply, Thanks!!
hey, so fresh install of ubuntu 16. following the new guide at https://h-educate.com/smtp-server-configuration/ .
when i get to
sudo apt-get install erlang
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done

If i try to install them one by one it says that they are not installable?
Any help would be wonderful
Use Ubuntu 18.04 friend. The guide is based on 18.04 and not 16.
