In this video, Chaim Krause begins creation of the database files for the Linux email server. Review install.txt, config.inc.php, and run setup.php.
- [Instructor] Let's check out…the status of our database now.…And we can see that it's installed but it's not running…so let's go ahead and use systemctl to enable it…and systemctl to start it.…Let's clear our screen here,…and now let's see if it's working…by attempting to log in.…And we logged in.…So we need to create a database.…Now, I'm going to use the command line here…but if you remember, we installed the GUI…that you can use to do this, phpMyadmin,…feel free to use that tool…if you don't like using the command line.…
So what we need to do here is create a database called mail.…Now we need to grant all privileges on mail to…we're going to create our user,…'postfixadmin'@'localhost'…identified by our password.…Next we need to grant select privileges…on mail.* to 'postfix'@'localhost'…identified by our password.…
And then we'll go in to flush our privileges and quit.…So we've now created a database…that we're going to use for Postfix Admin.…So I know there's a question you're all asking.…How did you know to create a database?…
