Installation

First of all, bind the unmaintained UCS repository on your server system via the command:

ucr set repository/online/unmaintained='yes'

To gurantee a successful installation of roundcube, execute the following command to install mysql.

univention-install mysql-server

Hint: Please note the mysql root password, because it's neccessary for the further installation.

cat /etc/mysql.secret

Now let's intall roundcube:

apt-get install roundcube

While the installation you will be asked for the mysql root password to grat access to the mysql server. After that a mysql user, named "roundcube", will be create. Set an individual password for this user. Confirm a second time your password.

The installation should be now successful.

Open the roundcube apache config via the command:

vim /etc/apache2/conf.d/roundcube

and delete the "#" befor the Alias entries. Before:

#Alias /roundcube/program/js/tiny_mce/ /usr/share/tinymce/www/
#Alias /roundcube /var/lib/roundcube

After:

Alias /roundcube/program/js/tiny_mce/ /usr/share/tinymce/www/
Alias /roundcube /var/lib/roundcube

This is neccessary to gain access to the roundcube web frontend.

Open roundcube via a browser of your choice. Enter the following URL:

http://<ip-of-your-server>/roundcube

Now you can fill out the text fields and login with the following syntax:

username = user@mail.domain
password = <password-of-the-user>
server = <your-mail-server>

Further information

More information about configuration can be obtained from the Roundcube installation guide.
