How to install exim&dovecot alone

I have hestia installed on my server without exim and dovecot, now I want that functions in my cp. How do I do that?

Is there a way to install exim and dovecot to that existing hestia installation (in the hestia way) without breaking everything?

Unfortunately Hestia doesn’t support to install Exim/Dovecot after Hestia’s installation. It should be possible to follow the same steps that Hestia does during the install but there are a lot of little things to take care that it’s better and faster to install Hestia from scratch.

Sure, Thankyou.

One more thing, After installing hestia cp in a fresh server etc/phpmyadmin permission changed to root:hestiamail instead root:root because of that can’t open phpmyadmin via panel(some permission error showing) why it’s changing like that?

To fix the perms issue:

chown -R root:www-data /etc/phpmyadmin/
chown -R hestiamail:www-data /usr/share/phpmyadmin/tmp/

Perms were changed to fix a security issue but they must be corrected to work with phpmyadmin.
