Default Setting up Roundcube

I followed the tutorial on how to setup roundcube with webmail.bve32k.org..but I can't get it working. I got stuck on a couple parts on it..

Quote:
Change the line:

$rcmail_config['smtp_user'] = '';

into:

$rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '/etc/postfix/virtusertable';
On this part why am I replacing virtuser_file with smtp_user? If I do this then there will be 2 virtuser. And then there will be no smtp_user.

Quote:
chown -R www-data:www-data temp
chown -R www-data:www-data logs
And on this part what do I do?

If you go to the website it doesn't show anything. I have a forward setup.
http://webmail.bve32k.org or http://www.bve32k.org/webmail/

Thanks, Ken

The right text must be:

Change the line $rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '';

into

$rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '/etc/postfix/virtusertable';

But we found out here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...ight=roundcube that if we do so, the identitiy settings will not be saved in case you login with username@domainname.tld.

So my advise for this moment is leave the line:

$rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '';

AND

$rcmail_config['smtp_server'] = '';

untouched.


-----
chown -R www-data:www-data temp
chown -R www-data:www-data logs

You set the Apache permissions, so it can write to the directories temp & log, which is necesarry.

I hope this information is helpful to you to setup RoundCube successfully!
The howto will be updated today.

I changed the roundcube information back to what you told me.

The chown -R I am still lost on. I should be changing www-data:www-data? right? If so to what?

I tried going to the webmail and it wouldn't go still.. Still a white page.

When you are within your RoundCube /web directory (where you see the directories temp and log), you should perform the commands:

chown -R www-data:www-data temp
chown -R www-data:www-data logs

Note: the user/group www-data is for Debian systems.
I do not know which distro you have...
I believe the command on Red Hat systems like Centos & Fedora is:

chown -R apache:apache temp
chown -R apache:apache logs

About your blank page:

- Did you remove the .htaccess file within your web?

- If you are using the Maildir format on your server, you have to enable Maildir within ISPConfig under Management > Settings > Email

- Have also a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...be+blank+login

I am using Fedora 6. I will give that chown -R command a try. Yes I did remove the .htaccess files..And I did change that option in Management for the maildir. Still blank.

Edit: I gave those commands a try and it worked all good.

I got it working somehow. Instead of doing everything at command prompt I downloaded it with firefox and extracted the files into the directory I wanted them to go in and then it started working fine. I followed the rest of the tutorial and it seems to be working now..that was weird..

I tried sending a test message and it didn't send. It came back and said..

I followed the LAMP server tutorial on how to setup everything. When I set up email did I create my own pop and smtp server? Or do I use my ISP? If I do use my own would it just be bve32k.org?

yes.

Thats up to you. If your server is on a DSL line, I recommend to use the mailserver of your ISP as mailrelay.

Yes, if thats the domain of your server and bve32k.org points to the IP address of your server.
