[HOW TO] Install eGroupWare on SME 7.x

[HOW TO] Install eGroupWare on SME 7.x
« on: January 07, 2007, 09:11:40 AM »
I take advantage of the release of a new version of eGroupWare (v1.2.106-2) to provide a howto to script its installation.

First of all, download necessary files here and here

Create a folder in /root nammed 'egroupware'

Copy the 2 downloaded files into /root/egroupware

Create a file /root/egroupware/98egroupware with :
Code: [Select]

# eGroupWare
Alias /egroupware /opt/egroupware/html
<Directory /opt/egroupware/html>
SSLRequireSSL on
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .phtml
Options Indexes +Includes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride all
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from all
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc on
php_flag track_vars on
php_flag register_globals off
php_admin_value phpa on
php_admin_value eaccelerator.enable 1
php_admin_value display_errors 0
php_admin_value mbstring.func_overload 7
</Directory>

This template allows access from anywhere (global). https mode is enabled.

Create a file /root/egroupware/60redir-egroupware with :
Code: [Select]

{

if ($port ne "443")

{

$OUT .= <<'HERE';


## Redirect Web Address to Secure Address


RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule ^/egroupware https://%{HTTP_HOST}/egroupware


## End Of Redirect


HERE


}

}
This template redirect automatically http to https for access to eGroupWare

Create a file /root/egroupware.sh with :
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh


echo "-------------------------------------------------------------------"
echo "Installation of eGroupWare (public access, automatic https mode)..."
echo "-------------------------------------------------------------------"


DOMAINE=$(db configuration get DomainName)


echo "Generating password..."

echo test > /root/pass.txt
sed -e "s/test/$pass/" /root/pass.txt >/root/pass.new
passok=$(grep -c $pass < /root/pass.new)
done
egwpass=$pass
echo "Password is : $egwpass"
rm -f /root/pass.txt
rm -f /root/pass.new


echo "Creating Data bases..."

cp /root/egroupware/98egroupware /etc/e-smith/templates/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf/
expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
service httpd-e-smith restart
echo


echo "-------------------------------------------------------------------------------"
echo "Installation completed, you must finish the installation of eGroupWare website."
echo "Please go to https://$DOMAINE/egroupware"
echo "-------------------------------------------------------------------------------"
echo
echo
echo "Reminder :"
echo "         - Website open globally"
echo "         - https mode enabled with automatic redirection"
echo
echo "         - eGroupware is installed in the folder : /opt/egroupware/html"
echo "         - tmp folder path is                    : /opt/egroupware/tmp"
echo "         - backup folder path is                 : /opt/egroupware/backup"

echo "         - MySQL user password is                : $egwpass"
echo "-------------------------------------------------------------------------------"

Now the only thing you have to do is
Code: [Select]
# sh egroupware.shand eGroupWare installs automatically.
A random password is generated for MySQL user, please note the informations given by the script and finish eGroupWare installation.

I forgot to say to CHMOD header.inc.php to 400 (read only for root) AFTER the install is done for security reasons...
Code: [Select]
chmod 400 /opt/egroupware/html/header.inc.phpThis should be better !

I'm also digging the fact that mysql user should have LOCK permission for its database... Will tell here if needed.

I've modified the howto and added howto for the 2 next setup stages. Just take a look at it.

@cool34000 :

Worked like charm ..

Thank you.

I have another problem though, related to Hebrew characters - i use UTF-8 as the basic encoding but some of the mail messages show scrambled and some messages are shown with whiped out text - mainly messags that were written in Hebrew.

Do you know how to solve that ?

Another question : is there a known solution for syncing eGroupWare with outlook without the need to accept security warnings ?

Server-manager and other ibays missing after egroupware inst
« Reply #7 on: January 14, 2007, 09:32:42 PM »
Help - I followed the directions as outlined, ran the egroupware.sh installation script and now none of my previous ibays, http://server/server-manager and https://server/egroupware can be accessed. I've rebooted the server and have restarted the httpd services with no success.

The primary ibay is the only one that is accessible.

What am I doing wrong here?

Did that, same results. However, the following errors have occured in the template section of the script.

Please be careful on the beginning and on the ending of templates files :
They have blank lines !!!
Verify your templates and expand templates then restart service.

Funambol sync
« Reply #12 on: January 15, 2007, 01:28:59 PM »
I've been working with egroupware since version 102 and have had the outlook sync working using the syncml or funambol clients.   I followed the script on a new test server but am unable to get the sync working.  I verified xmlrpc was turned on in egroupware admin setup.  My setup includes php5 and mysql5 all of which I had working on egroupware 105 for testing.

Has anyone else had an issue with it not working?

PS  thanks for the script

Yes, I get XML-RPC Fault:9999 when visiting the Filescenter:
Code: [Select]
PHP Fatal error:  Call to a member function on a non-object in /opt/egroupware/html/xmlrpc/testsuite.php on line 58


I also get:

Using the default PHP and MySQL from SME.

The 1st error you see is because xmlrpc service is not enabled in eGroupWare. In the admin panel, configure your site to enable xmlrpc service and FileCenter will work !

For the 2nd error you see, you should use in eGroupWare same users and passwords as SME accounts. It works perfectly !

I know eGroupWare is able to work with LDAP authentification, still don't know how to make this works but hope I'll be able soon to give a simple howto here (unless someone already knows how to make this working)
