Had real trouble installing...

Couldn't for the life of me work out where I was going wrong. It wasn't even building the open-exchange rpm. So I decided to to start installing a few things manually.

Yep. Bad download on probably two of the smallest files of all. Both the jta classes and docs were corrupt.

Moral of the story, if this doesn't work for you, check your downloaded files...

Works now tho. Thanks!

WebDAV testing
« Reply #31 on: May 24, 2005, 05:35:06 PM »
I've been fooling around with WebDAV (SME7 Alpha12) and after some adjustments i found on the OX forums got it working.

Because of Tomcat running as a different user than who owns the filespool you will get a: 'Can't access the filespool: Permission denied' error.
Found the solution on: http://www.open-xchange.org/cgi-bin/simpleforum.cgi?fid=02&topic_id=1112090510&highlight=webdav%20access%20filespool
To correct this:
Code: [Select]
chown -R tomcat4:tomcat4 /usr/local/ox/var/filespool
Also to access trough WebDAV the user must be part of a group:
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/ox/sbin/addusertogroup_ox --user='<username>' --group='<groupname>'i used the standard 'users' group

I don't know if the above adjustments pose a possible security risk, I'm to much of a newbie, so use at own risk!
@DarkMirage: do you know if this can do any harm?!

How to access OX trough WebDav can be found here:

and

Well, I'm no security expert either, but it seems harmless enough to me. I have already integrated the requirements for WebDav in the new version, since I found the wiki you specified  :-D

I was able to up/download documents, so it seems alright to me.

Once I have a first version of the server-manager panel, I'll update the version. This shouldn't take too long.

DarkMirage, would it be possible for you to create a new page on the wiki so you/we can have a consistent how-to where changes can be easily made ?

Thanks in advance, nice work!

ps. (Mathias, would you be so kind to setup the initial page for DarkMirage please?)

Sounds like a good idea, I'll start setting up a quick install/ some basic documentation
(That is, for my part of the installation, I'll leave the documentation for Open-Xchange to http://www.open-xchange.org/cgi-bin/simpleforum.cgi and http://www.open-xchange.org/oxwiki/Open Xchange Wiki)

@DarkMirage,

Thanks, usually every how-to will be accompanied by a feedbackpage so all users/testers can enter the SME Server specific info/findings/results.

Another great addition!

Thanks,

Everything appears to be working smoothly on Alpha15 except in Documents / File Uploads. Getting an error: "An error ocurred saving the documents to the database". Anyone else run into this?

Really great addition to SME7 DarkMirage  :-)

Sounds like a wrong permissions on those directories. Please check the Open-Xchange default install docs either ontheir site or within the package.

I've been trying the OX-look connector on Outlook2000 and DirkMirage's OX installation on SME7 Alpha12 and it works. Just download here:
http://www.openexchange.com/EN/download/

and follow the instructions found here:
http://www.open-xchange.org/oxwiki/OXLook

Must say that i thought this was a GPL-ed connector allso, but found out it costs: 20,-USD/20,-EUR per seat (reasonable price though). The beta of this connector is free for download, but has a restriction though... you have to switch between the functions Tasks, Appointments and Contacts (found in the menu: Extra > OXlook > 'Restriction'-tab). Maybe the opensource connector (http://www.openconnector.org/) might do the trick in the future as well.

Does anyone have a active link for DarkMirage's script.  I just installed alpha 16 and would like to give it a shot, however it seems that the host is down.

Regards

Ans here is another link for one file downloaded by the script:
http://mirror.contribs.org/smeserver/contribs/gswallow/open-xchange/Open-Xchange-files.tgz

...I downloaded that May 17th (files inside are from May 10th), not sure if it had changed since then.

I was planning to work on this soon, but in the meantime why doesn't someone save us all a little time and upload the rpms created by all the 'rpmbuild -bb' commands in the script somewhere.   (But change all to -ba so it builds the source rpm as well and upload both).

Sorry, that was not the correct and original script. Does anybody have the original script? If so, please add it to the wiki.

TIA
