Default Perfect Server Ubuntu 10.10 & Enabling SquirrelMail

Hi all,

I've installed The Perfect Server on Ubuntu 10.10. Everything is working normally with 1 website and 2 redirects. I have email working with IMAP.

I went to Enable SquirrelMail for Ubuntu 10.10 (http://howtoforge.com/enabling-squir...r-ubuntu-10.10)

Now, I can go to: mysite.com/webmail and get the login. Once I enter my username/password I get:

Error opening ../config/default_pref
Could not create initial preference file!
/var/lib/squirrelmail/data/ should be writable by user web1
Please contact your system administrator and report this error.
I'm not sure what I need to do to correct this.

Any thoughts?

Thanks Falko.

I did take a look at that thread and I ended up reinstalling everything ... LOL. After reinstallation, I did find a small issue. In the Squirrelmail.conf, I had to place "AddType application/x-httpd-php .php" in the <IfModule mod_php5.c> section.
