20 Install SquirrelMail

To install the SquirrelMail webmail client, run

aptitude install squirrelmail

Then create the following symlink...

ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/ /var/www/webmail

... and configure SquirrelMail:

squirrelmail-configure

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

Afterwards you can access SquirrelMail under http://server1.example.com/webmail or http://192.168.0.100/webmail:

 

21 Install ISPConfig 3

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

cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ispconfig/ISPConfig-3.0.2.1.tar.gz?use_mirror=
tar xvfz ISPConfig-3.0.2.1.tar.gz
cd ispconfig3_install/install/

(Replace ISPConfig-3.0.2.1.tar.gz with the latest version.)

The next step is to run

php -q install.php

This will start the ISPConfig 3 installer. The installer will configure all services like postfix, sasl, courier, etc. for you. A manual setup as required for ISPConfig 2 (perfect setup guides) is not nescessary.

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.

22 Additional Notes

If the Ubuntu server that you've just set up in this tutorial is an OpenVZ container (virtual machine), you should do this on the host system (I'm assuming that the ID of the OpenVZ container is 101 - replace it with the correct VPSID on your system):

VPSID=101
for CAP in CHOWN DAC_READ_SEARCH SETGID SETUID NET_BIND_SERVICE NET_ADMIN SYS_CHROOT SYS_NICE CHOWN DAC_READ_SEARCH SETGID SETUID NET_BIND_SERVICE NET_ADMIN SYS_CHROOT SYS_NICE
do
  vzctl set $VPSID --capability ${CAP}:on --save
done

Great How to, I have followed it an everything goes right but squirrelmail. When I try to enter for first time with one of my email users I get the following error message:

Error opening ../config/default_pref

Could not create initial preference file!
/var/lib/squirrelmail/data/ should be writable by user www-data
Please contact your system administrator and report this error.

I have double checked that www-data has permissions to write into /var/lib/squirrelmail/data

I even have done a su www-data, enter into that directory without problems and even create a file within it with 'touch foo', so www-data user has no problems to write on that directory, although SquirrelMail continues showing its error message and does not let the user see his mail box.

Hi,

After following this installation instructions I'm facing problems with email. I've created a client and an email box under ISPConfig, and the user can send emails without problems even from SquirrelMail, but when I sent a test message to the same mail account it's  discarded by the server with "unknown user" message.

It's a bit weird, since as I told I can sent messages with that user without problems.

 Dec  2 02:48:01 jaire postfix/local[3937]: 4F7BA2E487: to=<pepe@host.domain.com>, relay=local, delay=0.02, delays=0/0.01/0/0.01, dsn=5.1.1, status=bounced (unknown user: "pepe")

 

Please, note that I must use a subdomain for this host, so host.domain.com form is correct (of course these are NOT my real host and domain name's, I do not put they here because it's for a customer and I think I must respect his privacy).

Any hints? 

Thanks a lot in advance,

I just tried this on a VPS server that had basic LAMP already configured, and received the following errors in the process.....

 

1)

I was never given the option 

Configure database for phpmyadmin with dbconfig-common? <-- No 

How can I verify the setting?

 

 2)

When restarting Apache ...

Does this file come from the installation of a package that can be reinstalled?

 

 3)

Just would like to say thankyou for putting the time into producing this howto. 

 I followed it from start to finish and every single aspect of it worked perfectly.

 Thanks!

Submitted by jali (not registered) on Wed, 2010-12-01 21:59.

The entire installation went without any problem.

I added a first client and the client0 folder is created (/var/www/clients/client0)

When I add the second client or webdomain there is no client1 folder and also the user is not created. Only the email-domain is working but the website doesn't appear in /var/www

What is going wrong ???

Submitted by u4david (not registered) on Mon, 2010-09-20 23:47.

Can anyone confirm that falowing this guide your su-php and su-exec is working and you can run the services as a user.

 

I will need to use custom rules for adomain and i can do that with suPHP andf directives.

 

But in this how to i'm missing somethink like this:

For Debian and Ubuntu, the package libapache2-mod-suphp exists, however the problem with this package is that it doesn't support the suPHP_UserGroup directive (which is used by ISPConfig) because it wasn't compiled using the --with-setid-mode=paranoid switch. Therefore we must build mod_suphp manually.

First we disable the normal PHP5 module (as root):

a2dismod php5
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Then we install the prerequisites needed to build mod_suphp:

apt-get install php5-cgi apache2-prefork-dev

Now we can download and build suPHP as follows:

cd /tmp
wget http://www.suphp.org/download/suphp-0.6.2.tar.gz
tar xvfz suphp-0.6.2.tar.gz
cd suphp-0.6.2
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --with-apache-user=www-data --with-setid-mode=paranoid --with-apxs=/usr/bin/apxs2
make
make install

Finally we add the suPHP module to our Apache configuration...

vi /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

LoadModule suphp_module       /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_suphp.so

... and restart Apache:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

 Can someone tell me what is up wit that?

Test this if you get 404. Do the following to include the phpMyadmin-shipped Apache configuration into Apache:
sudo ln -s /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 reload

sudo vim /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf

and remark following lines like this and save the file, and the PhpMyAdmin should work.

On my 10.04 x64 installation I had to copy the postfix distribution sample to /etc/postfix/main.cf prior the ispconfig installation (and after installing the postfix package).

Otherwise ispconfig will not find the config file and fail to configure postfix properly.

I'm using vmware in windows vista to create the Ubuntu server for practice, and I think I have successfully gone through all the steps of installation except I need to use dhcp in order to get all the packages through web during installation.  Could I simply change the /etc/network/interfaces back to the suggested static IP after all?  How to get the squirrelmail and ispconfig accessible through the browser in my host windows system?

I made the virtual server fully visible to the external network by replicating the physical network card to the virtual machine and configuring the router ip redir tables

To anyone getting an error about disconnecting from imap immediately after you have logged in on squirrelmail:

I had a corresponding system user for my accunt so I'm not sure if it only takes the bottom portion to fix this for vmail

If you aren't using a system account then myuser for chmod and chown is obviously your mail username (not with your tld)


sudo maildirmake.dovecot /etc/skel/Maildir

sudo maildirmake.dovecot /etc/skel/Maildir/.Drafts

sudo maildirmake.dovecot /etc/skel/Maildir/.Sent

sudo maildirmake.dovecot /etc/skel/Maildir/.Trash

sudo maildirmake.dovecot /etc/skel/Maildir/.Templates

sudo cp -r /etc/skel/Maildir /home/myuser/

sudo chown -R myuser:usergroup /home/myuser/Maildir

sudo chmod -R 700 /home/myuser/Maildir

chmod -R 777 /var/vmail/my.hostname/myuser/

chown -R 5000:5000 /var/vmail/my.hostname/myuser/


This got me into a working installation

Everything is loading pretty slowly so I'm going to look into the cause of that, anyone else have that issue?

I cant complete the install. I get stuck with this after running php -q install.php command, then pressing enter for everything.

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)

Great tutorial! Works awesome! Could you also post how to install with roundcube webmail instead of squirrelmail? Thank you once again!

Thanks a lot – it works like a charm and was really easy to follow.

I would like to point out the same as salami did regardng Hetzner minimal Ubuntu on 9.10:

looks like hetzner's ubuntu 9.10 image isn't as minimal as it sounds :) it seems to have a crippled postfix package already installed, and the ispconfig install will fail because there is no /etc/postfix/main.cf.

to work around this issue, you can remove the package completely before starting with this guide using:

  • aptitude remove --purge postfix
  • dpkg --purge postfix
(the --purge in the first command should also take care of the config files... but it doesn't. calling dpkg manually cleans all the config files.)  after that the guide works perfectly if you start from step 4.

ypu say after install webmail you can access SquirrelMail under http://server1.example.com/webmail or http://192.168.0.100/web

but i can't access to it with root  or any user :

Unknown user or password incorrect.

there is any special user to acces it

regards.,

To login to squirrel mail do this User-name: user@example.com pass: enter password entering just user name/pass doesn't work. It hope it helps.

Try setting up an email domain and mailbox from the ISPConfig interface first.

Hi,

I have done  setup in exact manner described in this document. All things are working fine.

 I am unable to access the webmail using browser.

e.g. http://www.dsvtrust.org/webmail

I can see the link webmail -> /usr/share/squirrelmail/    in    my /var/www directory.

The site is working fine, the phpmyadmin alias is working fine.

Please suggest.

ISPConfig 3.0.3, on ubuntu 10.04

I copied the phpmyadmin.conf  to webmail.conf in :/etc/apache2/conf.d directory

 changed the alias inside webmail.conf and I can use the http://www/domain.com/webmail link
