How to create email accounts
 
Hi all,

I followed;
The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 12.2 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)
http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ot-ispconfig-3

to set up the server. It is now running.

On browser:
http://192.168.0.101/webmail/src/login.php
start the TestCompany login

I have no idea to login. Please advise where can I find instruction to setup email accounts on SquirrelMail? TIA

B.R.

You dont have to setup accounts in squirrelmail as squirrelmail autmatically uses the email accounts that you created in ispconfig.

So the steps are:

1) Login to ispconfig.
2) Add a email domain.
3) Add a mailbox

The mailbox login in squirrelmail is the email address that you created in ispconfig.

Btw. Thats all decsribed in detail in the ispconfig 3 manual.

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

I'll check it later. I'm now working on another PC.

A further question:
Also I can't login on phymyadmin without username and password. Whether I have to use ISPConfig to create it?

If YES please advise how? TIA

B.R.

You can login to phpmyadmin with the user root and the mysql root password that you created during installation of your server. Beside that, you can create client databases in ispconfig and then login with the details that you created there into phpmyadmin.

Hi till,

Performed following steps;

- start ISPConfig running on browser;
https://192.168.0.101:8080
- login
-> Email -> Add new Domain
-> Email Mailbox -> Add new Mailbox
etc.

I got it, thanks.

However I prefer running commands to set up email accounts on Postfix and hosting multiple websites on Apache2. But I could not find;
/etc/apache2/sites-available/default ?

# ls /etc/apache2/sites-available/
Code:

apps.vhost  ispconfig.conf  ispconfig.vhost
Whether apps.vhost is default?

# cat /etc/apache2/sites-available/apps.vhost
Code:


######################################################
# This virtual host contains the configuration
# for the ISPConfig apps vhost
######################################################

 Listen 8081
# NameVirtualHost *:8081

<VirtualHost _default_:8081>
  ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
 
 
  <IfModule mod_php5.c>
    DocumentRoot /srv/www/apps
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
    <Directory /srv/www/apps>
      # php_admin_value open_basedir "/srv/www/apps:/usr/share:/tmp"
      Options FollowSymLinks
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all
    </Directory>
  </IfModule>
 
  <IfModule mod_fcgid.c>
    DocumentRoot /srv/www/apps
    SuexecUserGroup ispapps ispapps
    <Directory /srv/www/apps>
      Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews +ExecCGI
      AllowOverride AuthConfig Indexes Limit Options FileInfo
      AddHandler fcgid-script .php
      FCGIWrapper /srv/www/php-fcgi-scripts/apps/.php-fcgi-starter .php
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all
    </Directory>
  </IfModule>
 
  ServerSignature Off

</VirtualHost>

Where is the default? TIA

B.R.

Then you might want to uninstall ispconfig as the purpose of a controlpanel is to manage a system trogh this controlpanel or in other words, trough a web interface.

The default vhost is not part of ispconfig, it is part of the Linux distribution that you used to install your server. So if this file is there or not is not related to ispconfig at all. If you use Debian Linux, you activate the default vhost with:

a2ensite default
/etc/init.d/apache restart

Hi till,

I suppose the I was following the wrong how-to;
The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 12.2 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

Would following How-to be relevant for my use? I expect running commands to setup Virtual Hosting and email accounts.

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 12.10)
http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-us...l-ubuntu-12.10

It would be quite easy for me installing another server. I'm running KVM on this PC.

Thanks

Ok, then you used a wrong tutorial. The tutorail you used are the installation instructions for the ispconfig 3 control panel. As you dont want to use a controlpanel, search for a tutorial that does not install a controlpanes like ispconfig, cpanel, plesk, whmcs etc.
