Default Horde as Webmail / Groupware for ISPconfig

Tested on openSUSE 11.3 with ISPconfig installed, here is my little manual for implementing horde as webmail / groupware for ISPconfig 3:


- Create a User Webmail in ISPconfig

- Create a subdomain or something else you like for this user

- go to this domain (e.g. openSUSE /srv/www/YOURDOMAIN/web


wget ftp://ftp.horde.org/pub/horde/horde-latest.tar.gz
tar xvfz horde-latest.tar.gz
rm horde-latest.tar.gz
mv horde-*/ horde/
cd horde/config
cp prefs.php.dist prefs.php
cp conf.php.dist conf.php
cp mime_drivers.php.dist mime_drivers.php
cp nls.php.dist nls.php
cp registry.php.dist registry.php
touch conf.bak.php
chmod 666 conf.php
chmod 666 conf.bak.php
cd ..


wget ftp://ftp.horde.org/pub/imp/imp-latest.tar.gz
tar xvfz imp-latest.tar.gz
rm imp-latest.tar.gz
mv imp-*/ imp/
cd imp/config
cp prefs.php.dist prefs.php
cp mime_drivers.php.dist mime_drivers.php
cp servers.php.dist servers.php
touch conf.php
touch conf.bak.php
chmod 666 conf.php
chmod 666 conf.bak.php

- open servers.php

- find

/* Example configurations: */

$servers['imap'] = array(
    'name' => 'IMAP Server',
    'server' => 'imap.example.com',
    'hordeauth' => false,
    'protocol' => 'imap/notls',
    'port' => 143,
    'maildomain' => 'example.com',
    'smtphost' => 'smtp.example.com',
    'smtpport' => 25,
    'realm' => '',
    'preferred' => '',
- replace with

$servers['imap'] = array(
    'name' => 'IMAP Server',
    'server' => 'localhost',
    'hordeauth' => true,
    'protocol' => 'imap/notls',
    'port' => 143,
    'folders' => 'INBOX.',
    'namespace' => '',
    'maildomain' => 'domain.com',
    'smtphost' => 'localhost',
    'smtpport' => 25,
    'realm' => '',
    'preferred' => '',
    'dotfiles' => false,
    'hierarchies' => array()
- now browse to "YOURDOMAIN.com/horde"

- Under "Administration", "Configuration" click on "Horde", then on "Make config"
- Under "Administration", "Configuration" click on "Horde", then in register "Authentication" do the following settings:

$conf[auth][admins]: Place your own email account for further admin possibilities
$conf[auth][driver]: Let an Horde application handle authentication
$conf[auth][params][app]: Choose imp

Thats all, have fun.

It is not very clear what kind of user in ISPconfig we are talking about.
Can you be more specific ?

CP User ?
