    Oke I have given up... not really but I am confused.
    I want to be able like in ISPConfig 2 to use roundcube for the webmail.
    No problem I thought just look in the forum and find a way people already did it .

    I have search and came up with all different (I think) solutions

    So witch one do I use :confused: I have ISPConfig installed the prefect way with Debian (latest)

    Migrate from squirrelmail to roundcube.


    My setup is Ubuntu 10.04 and ISPConfig 3
    I use this way:


    This is an easy way to migrate from one to the other in the absence of a how-to which uses Roundcube by default.

    Seems to be working well - I can send and receive mail. The only thing I am not sure about is if mail statistics are collected/reported properly.

    Hope this helps.

    That how-to wasn't working for me. I followed it three times and even used the exact same db settings, but it still came up with the message that roundcube was not able to connect to database.??

    I now have used this tutorial and I have a working roundcube. Even managed to get it to use https.

    Now I have just to figure out how to force the users to use the https because now they both work.

    Just panicking Wright now!! I just think by doing it this way maybe only the users with an example.com mail adres are able to use web-mail because the address is webmail.example.com

    Must try it with an new site with a different tld asap

    Let us know if it works :)

    If you already had squirrelmail installed then it may be that you have to update ISPConfig 3 (by running the php -q update option) after installing roundcube the way you have. I am not sure since I have not tried this.

    All works fine I have tested it with different tld and I can log in to roundcube and send mail. Also created an new client for testing purpose and also with this one I can login and send mail.

    To force the use of https for my web mail I use the solution mentioned here, and that works also great.

    One thing though, I have tested this only in my local network.

    What's the use off updating the squirrelmail??
