Horde 5.1 and ISPConfig 3
G'day guys,

Been using ISPConfig for quite awhile now and its very good - stable, well maintained, free, well you get my drift.

One thing however has bugged me since I've started using Horde as a Groupware. That I cannot get the Tasks to work properly.

I've previously asked for help here:

I've also asked for help on the Horde mailing list, but I hit a wall:

Any other logs, or what not please do not hesitate to PM or put it back here... I'm positive that I'm not the only one who has ISPConfig 3 and Horde running.

ISPConfig applies strict settings to every directory in /var/www that s not a website, so it might be that some of your horde settings dos not get applied or that they got negated or overridden.

Try to move the apache horde config file to /etc/apache2/sites-available/, then create a symlink in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ to that file, the name of the symlink should be at after the sites in alhabetical order e.g. 999-horde.conf and restart apache.

This ensures that the horde config file is loaded in apache after the ispconfig.conf and ispconfig.vhost file

Thanks for the response Till, but no joy...

I moved it to

Created a symlink


ln -s /etc/apache2/sites-available/horde.conf /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/999-horde.conf

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Same errors, no difference

Ok this is driving me nuts, also I paid for 6 months of priority support. I realize that its well and truly in the hard basket but I need this to be fixed.

New task creation redirects the browser to this:


I have tried talking with Horde, they handball it to you guys.
I have tried talking with Apache support and they just feed me mod_rewrite docs.

Is there no one who teaches by demonstration anymore? Man I hate reading, learning by trial and error is the way I do exactly that - Learn

The horde config looks normal that you posted and it should work. Maybe you have some rewrite rules in the website which interferes with horde.

sjswarts 14th June 2013 11:03

Yeah that is possible.

This is what my /etc/apache2/conf.d has in it:


root@mail:/etc/apache2/conf.d# ll

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 12 00:59 .

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1424 Sep 13  2012 security

I think the only ones I've changed are:

phpmyadmin.conf -

munin -

Otherwise I have these settings in my ISPConfig panel under website

vhost is -

Please remove the horde related rewrite rules that you added in ispconfig, e.g. this one:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^webmail\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$$1 [R]

as they interfere with the horde setup you made. and there might be more conflicting rewrite rules in a .htaccess file in the website.

Please try to use horde trough the IP address and additionally trough another site of this server to se if this has any influence.

OK I will try that,

Do I need to enable Python or any other type of programming language?

Not as far as I know. But I'am not a horde developer so I dont know their code nor software requirements in detail.

sjswarts 14th June 2013 11:18

Ok I tried that no luck, different website that I host. Still this error.
