    I`m running ISPConfig on my server.
    Some people have problems logging in to uebimiau at port 81.
    So I added in ISPConfig an put a Round Cube install there.
    I followed the install guide but all I get is a blanck page...

    Anyone got experiense in installing Round Cube on a ISPConfig installation?

    Thank you Hans.

    But I don`t even get in to the login page.... I get nothing.

    The mysql database is working, and the tables is there.

    Check if there is still a .htaccess file within your RoundCube's webX/web

    It is not visible, so remove it with the command:

    rm .htaccess

    And try again to login.

    If you use the Maildir format, make sure it enabled on your server!

    Nope, I deleted that one.

    I also tried to delete it all, and did it over again (including the sql db) but just the same.

    Did you enable php Safe mode for that web?
    If so, turn it off and try again...

    If you still have a blank page carefully check you have entered the MySql username correctly in

    I got:

    mysql://roundcubeuser:[email protected]/roundcube
    // PEAR database DSN for read/write operations
    // format is db_provider://user:[email protected]/databse
    // currentyl suported db_providers: mysql, sqlite
    $rcmail_config['db_dsnw'] = 'mysql://roundcube:[email protected]/roundcubemail';
    // postgres example: 'pgsql://roundcube:[email protected]/roundcubemail';
    // sqlite example: 'sqlite://./sqlite.db?mode=0646';
    // PEAR database DSN for read only operations (if empty write database will be used)
    // useful for database replication
    $rcmail_config['db_dsnr'] = '';
    // database backend to use (only db or mdb2 are supported)
    $rcmail_config['db_backend'] = 'db';
    in my, and the mysql login is correct and tested from command line.

    I still see the default line, which is:

    $rcmail_config['db_dsnw'] = 'mysql://roundcube: [email protected]/roundcubemail';

    You should change that into:

    $rcmail_config[’db_dsnw’]=’mysql:// web1_u1:[email protected]/web1_db1’;

    "web1_u1" is the mysqluser for the website (in this example =web1).
    "mysqlpassword" is the password for mysql user web1_u1.
    "web1_db1" is the databasename for web1.

    All as defined within ISPConfig under the "Options" tab, where you can define the database for your website.

    This is a realy nice webmail program!
    All it needs is a calendar....

    Just one problem with my installation now, I can`t send attachments, it won`t send mails I add attachments to.

    Any ideas on this?

    Now you have roundcube up and running, could you please have a look at the "Folders" option in Roundcube? (It's in Personal settings > Folders)

    I've installed Roundcube on two servers (one with the "Hans" way, and one with the ISPconfig package way)

    Both version on both servers are showing more Foldernames than needed (have a look at the image)

    Does this also showup in your install?

    Problem (with my Roundcube installs) is that a user (admin or not) can delete folders that should really not be deleted!

    Please have a look here:

    Also check the values of php_value "upload_max_filesize", "upload_max_filesize" within your php.ini file.

    Within your RoundCube web, RoundCube has its own logfiles.
    Do you see any errors there?

    You can configure that within RoundCube's configuration file called

    Do not worry about deleted "default" folders. They are created automaticly again, when mail arrives. :)

    Within your have a look to these lines, in the last line you can set permissions for the default folders by using TRUE or FALSE:
    The first line defines the default path, folders from there are displayed. You should check that as well.

    // only list folders within this path
    $rcmail_config['imap_root'] = '';

    // store draft message is this mailbox
    // leave blank if draft messages should not be stored
    $rcmail_config['drafts_mbox'] = 'Drafts';

    // store spam messages in this mailbox
    $rcmail_config['junk_mbox'] = 'Junk';

    // store sent message is this mailbox
    // leave blank if sent messages should not be stored
    $rcmail_config['sent_mbox'] = 'Sent';

    // move messages to this folder when deleting them
    // leave blank if they should be deleted directly
    $rcmail_config['trash_mbox'] = 'Trash';

    // display these folders separately in the mailbox list.
    // these folders will automatically be created if they do not exist
    $rcmail_config['default_imap_folders'] = array('INBOX', 'Drafts', 'Sent', 'Junk', 'Trash');

    // protect the default folders from renames, deletes, and subscription changes
    $rcmail_config['protect_default_folders'] = TRUE;

    Thank you Hans, but I can still delete stuff than is in folders like /web and /bin and /etc, and they do not get re-created when an email arrives!

    My $rcmail_config['protect_default_folders'] is set to TRUE (same problem when set to FALSE)

    Also.. How does your your $rcmail_config['imap_root'] look like?

    Hi Edge,

    The values are the same as shown above, so it is set to true.
    I've noticed that non-administrator-users can NOT change the default folders 'INBOX', 'Drafts', 'Sent', 'Junk', 'Trash',
    But if i wait for a while, they can. I do not know why this happens, but i do not worry because if they delete those folders, they are created again by RoundCube.

    If i was you, try to find out, why you have so many folders.
    At the moment i am quiet busy, but i try to help you with finding a solution soon.

    Okay.. I think I found the problem

    Lets say we have a user: web42_demo (not an admin account!)

    As test I have set in

    $rcmail_config['imap_root'] = 'webmail';
    (note webmail can be any name)

    Now Roundcube will create the following folder:

    Within the /webmail folder 4 files are created (as it should).

    If I leave "$rcmail_config['imap_root'] = '';" empty
    The 4 files are created in "/var/www/web_42/user/web42_demo/"
    In "/var/www/web_42/user/web42_demo/" there are allready (a lot of) files and folders, and when requesting the "Foldes" option within Roundcube, they are listed aswell.

    When I use an admin account to login with $rcmail_config['imap_root'] = 'webmail'; set, I still see all the files/folders!

    I'll be doing some more testing later today
