I am trying to use civibuild for installing a wp-demo instance on my local machine. I am using XAMPP on macOS Sierra.

The download successfully completed:

civibuild download "civiwpbuild" --civi-ver "master" --type "wp-demo"

But while running install:

civibuild install "civiwpbuild" --url "http://localhost:4000" --admin-pass "XXXXXXXXXX"

It gets stuck with:

postdrop: warning: mail_queue_enter: create file maildrop/29895.24374: No such file or directory

Any suggestion please.


Just found the fix that my postfix was not running.

I had to do a sudo postfix start which resulted in a number of warnings with final output

postfix/postfix-script: starting the Postfix mail system

After this I retried running the civibuild install

civibuild install "civiwpbuild" --url "http://localhost:4000" --admin-pass "XXXXXXXXXX"

and it worked.
