Red face Squirrelmail customization

Hi All,

I have installed the standard CentOS 5.2 with ISPConfig 2.2.4. I downloaded the Squirrelmail .pkg from www.ispconfig.org and use the Update Manager to install Squirrelmail.

I noticed to access Squirrelmail, I will need to use this URL https://cp.abc.com:81/squirrelmail/. If I want to change the URL to https://mail.abc.com, how do I do it?

Also when I login to Squirrelmail and access the Options feature, I cannot find the option to configure my auto-response within Squirrelmail. Instead I need to login to the user's control panel via https://cp.abc.com:81/mailuser/ to do it. Is there any way to integrate the control features directly into Squirrelmail and administer it from there?

This is one way to achieve this:

You will have to write a squirrelmail plugin for this, that modifies the ispconfig database and then starts the update process.

Default MySQL and Email hosting

Hi Till,

Thanks for the reply. Another question I have is regarding the MySQL DB. When I create a site, under the Basic Tab, there is this MySQL option which according to the manual is to allow MySQL access. Also under the Options tab, there is this option to create a database.

What I want to know is:
1. how is the database connected to the site?
2. what is the purpose of the database?
3. if a database is created, will it be backup as part of the data in the master data?

Thanks.

It isn't connected to a site. If you install an application that needs a database, you must use the database settings of the database that you created in ISPConfig in the application's configuration/settings.

What backup do you mean?

Hi,

I think I did not ask my question correctly. What I want to ask is that in creating email user accounts, where does this data get save in to? Is it save into the ispconfig main database which is created during the ISPConfig setup?

By the answer you have provided, the MySQL database created under the Sites setup is for other applications and not related to the email user accounts. Correct?

Regards.

All configuration data of ispconfig is saved to its main database of course. User databases have nothing to do with that. user databases are for website applications that the user installs.
