    Yo,

    Basically, my friend and I run a few websites, he owns a dedicated server that hosts both our sites. We recently upgraded and got a new server, and (to cut a long story short) the guy we got to set it up disappeared half way through doing so.

    This has left us with the websites up and running with FTP (thankfully) but very little else. We have lost all email functionality on the server and pretty much everything else that you would expect to have.

    We got a mate to look at it but he isn't familiar with the new server software (NginX) that was installed by the guy who set it up, however, he was able to tell us that the server was receiving emails but couldn't store them, so was returning a bounce message.

    We need someone who is very competent to use the root info and check out our server and pretty much finish setting it up. Obviously, with the nature of the problem, and the importance of a resolution, we would prefer someone who has a proven track record and that could finish the job in a short amount of time.

    We will obviously be paying, and we can negotiate a price once we have found a candidate.

    So you have a rough idea; the server is on Unix, it has got NginX installed and you will need to log in via terminal or a similar program.

    Thank you in advance

    The email problem is the only thing that needs to be done ? To be honest, I know about UNIX and servers, but never tried NginX. I could do my best to solve this, but of course if you have somebody else who DID SOLVED! the same thing before, go for it :) If not, send me a PM and I'll do my best.

    Thanks bro!

    Yes the Email is the main problem, We dont have a Cpanel of anykind but that isnt the biggest issue tbh, we just want the mail server up asap.

    If we dont find anyone else I will give you a shout mate.

    Nginx is just like apache. The one who will help you will not need to know about nginx. You just need to setup an email server (SMPT,POP,IMAP). So facebookcpa could be able to help you without knowing nginx. I have some experience with nginx, but not with setting up an email server on unix. If you need some help with nginx let me know.

    First off, nginx is technically *significantly* different from apache. For nginx you'll need a cgi to execute php like php5-fpm so make sure that's installed and running. For the email server in general if you have root access it might be as easy as dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config (if you use exim) if you're running on a debian derivative of some sort. Similar tools are available for redhat based. Hopefully that might be a starting point for you. HTH
