    open database /etc/postfix/aliases.db error

    run

    postalias /ets/aliases
    postmap /etc/postfix/access
    postmap /etc/postfix/virtual
    postmap /etc/postfix/transport

    then move the /etc/aliases file to /etc/postfix
    lastly run newaliases command and restart postfix

    hope this solves you problem
