The Perfect Server CentOS 7.6 with Apache, PHP 7.2, Postfix, Dovecot, Pure-FTPD, BIND and ISPConfig 3.1 - Page 3

21 Install Roundcube webmail

To install the RoundCube webmail client, download the latest version with wget to the /tmp folder:

cd /tmp
wget https://github.com/roundcube/roundcubemail/releases/download/1.3.9/roundcubemail-1.3.9-complete.tar.gz

Unpack the tar.gz archive and move the roundcube source to /usr/share/roundcubemail

tar xfz roundcubemail-1.3.9-complete.tar.gz
mkdir /usr/share/roundcubemail
mv /tmp/roundcubemail-1.3.9/* /usr/share/roundcubemail/
chown -R root:root /usr/share/roundcubemail
chown apache /usr/share/roundcubemail/temp
chown apache /usr/share/roundcubemail/logs

Create a roundcubemail.conf configuration file with nano editor:

nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/roundcubemail.conf

And add the following content to that file:

#
# Round Cube Webmail is a browser-based multilingual IMAP client
#

Alias /roundcubemail /usr/share/roundcubemail
Alias /webmail /usr/share/roundcubemail # Define who can access the Webmail # You can enlarge permissions once configured <Directory /usr/share/roundcubemail/> Options none AllowOverride Limit Require all granted </Directory> # Define who can access the installer # keep this secured once configured <Directory /usr/share/roundcubemail/installer> Options none AllowOverride Limit Require all granted </Directory> # Those directories should not be viewed by Web clients. <Directory /usr/share/roundcubemail/bin/> Order Allow,Deny Deny from all </Directory> <Directory /usr/share/roundcubemail/plugins/enigma/home/> Order Allow,Deny Deny from all </Directory>

Restart Apache:

systemctl restart httpd.service

Now we need a database for RoundCube mail, we will initialize it as follows:

mysql -u root -p

At MariaDB prompt use:

CREATE DATABASE roundcubedb;
CREATE USER [email protected] IDENTIFIED BY 'roundcubepassword';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES on roundcubedb.* to [email protected] ;
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
exit

I am using the details for the RoundCube database as an example, please replace the values as per your choice for security reasons.

Now we will install RoundCube in the browser at http://192.168.0.100/roundcubemail/installer

Now create the config.inc.php file:

nano /usr/share/roundcubemail/config/config.inc.php
<?php

/* Local configuration for Roundcube Webmail */

// ----------------------------------
// SQL DATABASE
// ----------------------------------
// Database connection string (DSN) for read+write operations
// Format (compatible with PEAR MDB2): db_provider://user:[email protected]/database
// Currently supported db_providers: mysql, pgsql, sqlite, mssql, sqlsrv, oracle
// For examples see http://pear.php.net/manual/en/package.database.mdb2.intro-dsn.php
// NOTE: for SQLite use absolute path (Linux): 'sqlite:////full/path/to/sqlite.db?mode=0646'
// or (Windows): 'sqlite:///C:/full/path/to/sqlite.db'
$config['db_dsnw'] = 'mysql://roundcubeuser:[email protected]/roundcubedb';

// ----------------------------------
// IMAP
// ----------------------------------
// The IMAP host chosen to perform the log-in.
// Leave blank to show a textbox at login, give a list of hosts
// to display a pulldown menu or set one host as string.
// To use SSL/TLS connection, enter hostname with prefix ssl:// or tls://
// Supported replacement variables:
// %n - hostname ($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'])
// %t - hostname without the first part
// %d - domain (http hostname $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] without the first part)
// %s - domain name after the '@' from e-mail address provided at login screen
// For example %n = mail.domain.tld, %t = domain.tld
// WARNING: After hostname change update of mail_host column in users table is
// required to match old user data records with the new host.
$config['default_host'] = 'localhost';

// provide an URL where a user can get support for this Roundcube installation
// PLEASE DO NOT LINK TO THE ROUNDCUBE.NET WEBSITE HERE!
$config['support_url'] = '';

// This key is used for encrypting purposes, like storing of imap password
// in the session. For historical reasons it's called DES_key, but it's used
// with any configured cipher_method (see below).
$config['des_key'] = 'pb0UucO0eqjgvhrqYlFTBVjE';

// ----------------------------------
// PLUGINS
// ----------------------------------
// List of active plugins (in plugins/ directory)
$config['plugins'] = array();

// Set the spell checking engine. Possible values:
// - 'googie' - the default (also used for connecting to Nox Spell Server, see 'spellcheck_uri' setting)
// - 'pspell' - requires the PHP Pspell module and aspell installed
// - 'enchant' - requires the PHP Enchant module
// - 'atd' - install your own After the Deadline server or check with the people at http://www.afterthedeadline.com before using their API
// Since Google shut down their public spell checking service, the default settings
// connect to http://spell.roundcube.net which is a hosted service provided by Roundcube.
// You can connect to any other googie-compliant service by setting 'spellcheck_uri' accordingly.
$config['spellcheck_engine'] = 'pspell';
$config['enable_installer'] = true;

Then press "continue" in the web installer. On the following page, press on the button "Initialize database".

Finally, disable the Roundecubemail installer. Change the RoundCube config.inc.php configuration file

nano /usr/share/roundcubemail/config/config.inc.php

and change the line:

$config['enable_installer'] = true;

to:

$config['enable_installer'] = false;

Roundcube is available now under the aliases /webmail and /roundcubemail on your server:

http://192.168.0.100/webmail

The RoundCube login is the email address and password of an email account that you create later in ISPConfig.

22 Install ISPConfig 3.1

The ISPConfig installer will configure all services like Postfix, Dovecot, etc. for you.

You now also have the possibility to let the installer create an SSL vhost for the ISPConfig control panel so that ISPConfig can be accessed using https:// instead of http://. To achieve this, just press ENTER when you see this question: Do you want a secure (SSL) connection to the ISPConfig web interface (y,n) [y]:.

To install ISPConfig 3.1 from GIT stable branch, do this:

cd /tmp 
wget -O ispconfig.tar.gz https://git.ispconfig.org/ispconfig/ispconfig3/repository/archive.tar.gz?ref=stable-3.1
tar xfz ispconfig.tar.gz
cd ispconfig3*/install/

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, Dovecot, etc. for you. A manual setup as required for ISPConfig 2 (perfect setup guides) is not necessary.

[[email protected] install]# php install.php

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

23 First ISPConfig Login

Afterwards you can access ISPConfig 3 under http(s)://server1.example.com:8080/ or http(s)://192.168.0.100:8080/ (http or https depends on what you chose during installation).

Log in with the username admin and the password admin (you should change the default password after your first login):
