Background: I just got a fresh install of ubuntu 10.04 on a new vps and installed Virtualmin. I have Virtualmin running flawlessly on another VPS from a different provided.
Problem: On the system information page and the service tab I keep noticing that dovecot has stopped and when I start it via virtualmin it quickly stops again. When I try to start it via SSH, I get this message. "Last died with error (see error log for more information): Time just moved backwards by 299 seconds. This might cause a lot of problems, so I'll just kill myself now. http://wiki.dovecot.org/TimeMovedBackwards If you have trouble with authentication failures, enable auth_debug setting. See http://wiki.dovecot.org/WhyDoesItNotWork This message goes away after the first successful login." I saw a little information in the forums about people with similar issues but I can't figure out how to fix it. What I understand is happening is ntpdate keeps rolling back or forward the time because the server has the wrong time, is that right?
