23 Install SquirrelMail

To install the SquirrelMail webmail client, run...

yum install squirrelmail

... and restart Apache:

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

Then configure SquirrelMail:

/usr/share/squirrelmail/config/conf.pl

We must tell SquirrelMail that we are using Courier-IMAP/-POP3:

well with others.  If you select your IMAP server, this option will
set some pre-defined settings for that server.

Please note that you will still need to go through and make sure
everything is correct.  This does not change everything.  There are
only a few settings that this will change.

One last thing we need to do is modify the file /etc/squirrelmail/config_local.php and comment out the $default_folder_prefix variable - if you don't do this, you will see the following error message in SquirrelMail after you've logged in: Query: CREATE "Sent" Reason Given: Invalid mailbox name.

vi /etc/squirrelmail/config_local.php

<?php
/**
 * Local config overrides.
 *
 * You can override the config.php settings here.
 * Don't do it unless you know what you're doing.
 * Use standard PHP syntax, see config.php for examples.
 *

 * @package squirrelmail
 * @subpackage config
 */
//$default_folder_prefix                = '';
?>

Now you can type in http://server1.example.com/webmail or http://192.168.0.100/webmail in your browser to access SquirrelMail.

 

24 Install ISPConfig 3

Uninstall BIND and Dovecot so that the ISPConfig installer configures ISPConfig for MyDNS and Courier:

yum remove bind dovecot

To install ISPConfig 3 from the latest released version, do this:

cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ispconfig/ISPConfig-3.0.1.3.tar.gz?use_mirror=
tar xvfz ISPConfig-3.0.1.3.tar.gz
cd ispconfig3_install/install/

(Replace ISPConfig-3.0.1.3.tar.gz with the latest version.)

The next step is to run

php -q install.php

This will start the ISPConfig 3 installer:

[root@server1 install]# php -q install.php

The installer automatically configures all underlying services, so no manual configuration is needed.

Afterwards you can access ISPConfig 3 under http://server1.example.com:8080/ or http://192.168.0.100:8080/. Log in with the username admin and the password admin (you should change the default password after your first login):

The system is now ready to be used.

The suPHP installation fails and kicks out with error when you go to make it. Please regress and adjust the step for the proper way to build it.

Thanks!

Hello all..just a remark..followed directions to the letter..as far as i can tell..up to suphp everything was fine..then make and make install errors

followed a thread from another forum to get the suphp install to work ok...

then the squirrelmail pretest  failed..I was assuming perhaps ispconfig needed to be in for some additional config items...

then a nice errorless ispconfig install....unfortunatlely  there are issues with ispconfig as well...

I will see if i can debug the items and return to post: )
