migration to new server fails on restoring mail… EACCES: permission denied



  • @nebulon

    this i kinda urgent!!

    I'm in the process of moving my complete cloudron 4.2.7 from an OVH-VM to my own dedi.
    restoring the backup fails with:

    EACCES: permission denied, open '/home/yellowtent/boxdata/mail/vmail/USERNAME@xxx.xxx/mail/dovecot-uidvalidity.5cbf06e5'
    
    • it has already restored 2,5G of mails from other users w/o errors.
    • filesystem looks ok.
    • no systemlog errors.

    The directory in question looks like:

    drwx------ 2 yellowtent yellowtent 4,0K Apr 23  2019 cur
    -rw------- 1 yellowtent yellowtent  768 Apr 23  2019 dovecot.index.cache
    -rw------- 1 yellowtent yellowtent 1,7K Apr 23  2019 dovecot.index.log
    -rw------- 1 yellowtent yellowtent  106 Apr 23  2019 dovecot-uidlist
    -rw------- 1 yellowtent yellowtent    8 Apr 23  2019 dovecot-uidvalidity
    -r--r--r-- 1 yellowtent yellowtent    0 Apr 23  2019 dovecot-uidvalidity.5cbf06e5
    drwx------ 2 yellowtent yellowtent 4,0K Apr 23  2019 new
    drwx------ 2 yellowtent yellowtent 4,0K Apr 23  2019 tmp
    

    how to proceed?
    can I just restart the restore?
    can I manually restore single apps, when the box-restore failed, or does that mix up the rest? I'm thinking of mail-settings, DNS, etc.
