SOLVED SASL LOGIN authentication failed: generic failure


  • Hi,

    When I run “sudo systemctl restart apache2”

    It says: Job for apache2.service failed because the control process exited with error code.

    after I run “sudo journalctl -xe”

    It returns with a lot message, which are all the same, as following: I wonder is my server get attack by the following IP , “31.130.184.78”? 🙂

    I believe that I haven’t made any settings for my virtualmin server. Can anyone please tell me what are the basic settings to protect my server.

    @ash3t postfix doesn’t have any bearing on Apache - they are different products. Is there anything specific in the Apache logs ?

    What you are seeing in the postfix logs is an authentication error when attempting to connect to postfix directly - probably from a previous connection that used the same ip addresses as you have assigned now.

    I wouldn’t be overly concerned by this presently, but it’s something you can just use fail2ban for which is installed as part of VirtualMin.


  • @phenomlab Thanks for your reply. Actually, my server is running on Nginx server.

    I notice that on the server information page, the virtual memory is 99% red circle. I thought if postfix is for SMTP so I turn off the email server. I guess this would hurt, if I am not planning to use any email service.

    However, after check the Nginx error log, this is what I got, does any of the following needs my concern? Thanks very much for your continuing help.

    Sorry - either Apache, or NGINX - Postfix has no bearing on either.

    For the error messages logged, this is not a cause for concern - unless you are indeed running WordPress, in which case, this is indicative of a reconnaissance scan against the IP address you are using. More often than not, IP addresses are recycled, so they used to exist with perhaps a WordPress installation under the control of someone else who has since decided to no longer use that particular service. The IP address they used has been returned to an available pool of addresses post their cancellation, but for the scanners out there, this is still a viable target hence what you see in the logs.

    If you are not running WordPress, you can safely ignore these errors as they are harmless. However, your server’s performance will suffer as a result if this continues. My recommendation would be to block the IP address concerned using Fail2Ban or FirewallD (the default firewall in Webmin unless you switched it out for something else)

    I notice that on the server information page, the virtual memory is 99% red circle. I thought if postfix is for SMTP so I turn off the email server. I guess this would hurt, if I am not planning to use any email service.

    Postfix isn’t usually a memory killer - is the amount of available RAM on that server low ? You may need to increase it, or perhaps disable unused modules in Webmin. I wouldn’t recommend disabling Postfix as this service is used as a dependency for other services (they rely on it running).

    @Ash3T I’m going to mark this post as solved as I’ve not heard from you in a while. Let me know if this isn’t the case and you need more help.
