    Hi,
    was looking on the web, but still cannot find solution :(
    Need to install eGroupware on my Virtual server with Debian Lenny and ISPconfig 3.
    When running the preinstallation check of egroupware an error is displayed
    for PEAR support stating that PEAR is not available.
    But I am sure that everything was installed:
    Code:
    # pear list
    Installed packages, channel pear.php.net:
    =========================================
    Package            Version  State
    Archive_Tar        1.3.2    stable

    Auth_SASL          1.0.3    stable

    Net_Sieve          1.1.7    stable
    Net_Socket         1.0.9    stable
    PEAR               1.7.1    stable
    Structures_Graph   1.0.2    stable
    XML_Feed_Parser    1.0.3    stable
    
    Maybe some changes in vhost.conf or Apache directives in ISPConfig website menu could help?

    Thx

    I'm using "Mod-PHP"

    and maybe there is solution...

    I did follows:
    - download package from http://sourceforge.net/projects/egroupware/files/ - eGroupware-egw-pear-1.6.002.tar.gz
    unpack to the egroupware install directory (/var/www/clientx/webx /web/egroupware
    - edit @mydomain.com.vhost file in /etc/apache2/sites-enable/ and add this paths
    Code:
     php_admin_value open_basedir /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web:/var/www/clients/client1/web2/tmp:/usr/share/php5:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/php/PEAR:/usr/etc:/etc/pear/
    
    - after this there was only last error :
    Code:
    Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/etc/pear.conf) is not within the allowed path(s): etc........
    Copy file "pear.conf" from /etc/pear to /usr/etc solved this...

    I'm not sure if this is "clear" solution, but everything seems to be OK now..

    You should change the open_basedir path also in the vhost.master template in /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/. Otherwise the modification of the vhost will be undone when you edit the vhost settings in ispconfig the next time.

    thanks for the advice

    So I proceed to the next step - Configuration and got following error:

    Configuration not completed
    Your files directory ‘/var/lib/egroupware/default/files’ does not exist**
    Your backup directory ‘/var/lib/egroupware/default/backup’ does not exist**

    I made this folders: (files should be outside web root directory)
    Code:
    ~# ls -l /var/egw
    total 12
    drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 2010-01-23 15:15 backup
    drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 2010-01-23 15:40 files
    drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 2010-01-23 15:40 temp
    
    and changed path for /files and /backup to /var/egw directory, but still got error...

    Neither change
    Code:
    chown -R web2:client1 /var/egw
    didn't help
    FYI root of web pages:
    Code:
    ls -l /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web
    total 176
    drwxr-xr-x 34 root root      4096 2010-01-23 11:46 egroupware
    drwxr-xr-x  2 web2 client1   4096 2010-01-22 19:31 error
    -rwxr-xr--  1 web2 client1   1406 2010-01-22 19:31 favicon.ico
    -rwxr-xr--  1 web2 client1   1861 2010-01-22 19:31 index.html
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root    148733 2010-01-22 20:09 index.html.1
    -rwxr-xr--  1 web2 client1     34 2010-01-22 19:31 robots.txt
    drwxr-xr-x  2 root root      4096 2010-01-23 00:30 stats
    
    :confused:

    egroupware may never write to a directory /var/lib/egroupware as this is a securiity vioaltion on a hosting system. I guess you set wrong directories in egroupware as you installed it. Every directory egroupware may access must be within /var/www/clients/client1/web2/.

    /var/egw is also a very bad choice for a web application. never choose a directory outside of the web root.

    Check the egroupware config files and change the paths for files and backup to e.g. /var/www/clients/client1/web2/files and /var/www/clients/client1/web2/backup

    Still no success :(

    Your backup directory ‘/var/www/clients/client1/web2/backup’ does not exist

    Code:
    # ls -l /var/www/clients/client1/web2
    total 52
    drwxrwxrwx 2 root root    4096 2010-01-23 16:15 backup
    .
    .
    
    nor
    Code:
     ls -l /var/www/clients/client1/web2
    total 52
    drwxrwxrwx 2 web2 client1 4096 2010-01-23 16:15 backup

    What is the current open_basedir restriction that you have set for the website? If it does not contain /var/www/clients/client1/web2, then change /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web to /var/www/clients/client1/web2 or add /var/www/clients/client1/web2
