Wedmin is adding an obsolete setting into /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf

If you run the dovecot -n command on CentOS 7.x based Virtualmin system, then it will give the following warning messages:

doveconf: Warning: Obsolete setting in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf:104: ssl_ca_file has been replaced by ssl_ca = <file

The issue is addressed by replacing

ssl_ca_file = /etc/webmin/miniserv.chain


ssl_ca = /etc/webmin/miniserv.chain

Still would be nice if this is fixed in your repositories.

Closed (works as designed)


Odd, Webmin and Virtualmin should already use ssl_ca if Dovecot version 2.2 or later is in use.

How did you set the CA cert? Was it at Webmin -> Servers -> Dovecot IMAP Server, or by copying a Virtualmin domain's cert to Dovecot?

I don't exactly remember how it was installed. Anyway the problem has been addressed if it was some odd single occurrence. Thanks!
