Horde 5 Task issue - ISPConfig 3
G'day guys,

I have an issue with Horde 5 (already tried dealing with their support) Nag component to Horde Webmail Groupware.

Debian 6 Squeeze
Dovecot, Apache2, Postfix, Bind
Horde is installed in directory /var/www/horde

The issue is related solely to the Nag module of Horde 5 as the rest have no issue (IMP, etc).

What happens is that when I try to create a New task it fails in the redirect.

This is taken from the log of Apache:


[Fri Nov 30 12:20:18 2012] [error] [client] File does not exist: /var/www/horde/nag/t, referer:
This is my horde.conf


Alias /autodiscover/autodiscover.xml /var/www/horde/rpc.php
Alias /Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync /var/www/horde/rpc.php

Alias /Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml /var/www/horde/rpc.php
#Alias /autodiscover/autodiscover.xml /var/www/horde/rpc.php
Alias /AutoDiscover/AutoDiscover.xml /var/www/horde/rpc.php

Alias /horde /var/www/horde
Alias /webmail /var/www/horde

<Directory /var/www/horde>
            Options +FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride All
            order allow,deny
            allow from all
            AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
            php_value include_path ".:/usr/share/php"
            php_value open_basedir "none"
            php_value upload_tmp_dir "/var/www/horde/phptmp/"

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
#  <IfModule mod_ssl.c>
    <Location /webmail>

#      SSLOptions +StrictRequire
#      SSLRequireSSL
#      SSLRequire %{HTTP_HOST} eq ""
#      ErrorDocument 403

      RewriteEngine on
      RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !^on$ [NC]
      RewriteRule . https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}  [L]

#  </IfModule>

I have been asked if mod_rewrite is in effect on my server which I know it is.

Also if I put this code below to try and log the mod_rewrites apache fails to reload, even though the code is good according to multiple people.


RewriteLog /tmp/mod_rewrite.log
RewriteLogLevel 2

Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

Help anyone? Still haven't figured this out. According to the guys over at Horde support its something to do with mod_rewrite...

But because my system is using ISPConfig they are quite stand-off-ish...

Hi Sjswarts,

I had the same troubles, though my ISPconfig based Server worked out of th ebox.
I have another ubuntu system running Horde 5 which had the same problem recently.
I had to put the following directives somewhere in my apache conf.

Yours is missing these specific directives:
<Directory /var/www/horde/>
AllowOverride Options Fileinfo
Order allow,deny
allow from all

And additionally I have in hordes base conguration Pretty URLs with mod_rewrite enabled.

I hope this points you in the proper direction and you will solve your problem.

Well its been forever since I've tried to fix this issue. But still no luck.

So you are saying that even though you have a horde.conf in /etc/apache2/conf.d/ you still add:


<Directory /var/www/horde/>
AllowOverride Options Fileinfo
Order allow,deny
allow from all

to /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Is that right?? Seems odd...

I tried that but I get an error 500 - when I attempt to visit

This is the error log:


tail -f /var/www/

/var/www/horde/.htaccess: allow not allowed here
I don't know what that means...
