http://horde.org/ http://www.horde.org/source/modules.php

To install Horde you need to have the modules and upgrades done as outline in BuildingACentosServer.

Get the local domain name.

export DOMAINNAME=`cat /etc/sysconfig/network|grep DOMAINNAME|cut -d= -f2`
export HOSTNAME=`cat /etc/sysconfig/network|grep HOSTNAME|cut -d= -f2`

sed -ie ‘s/.*memory_limit.*$/memory_limit = 64M/’ /etc/php.ini \
&& grep memory_limit /etc/php.ini

Installing pear dependencies.

We need to make sure that all the pear modules are installed and of the latest versions.
Run the following code in a SSH session as root.

/etc/init.d/httpd restart
pear install XML_RPC
pear upgrade XML_RPC

pear upgrade PEAR-1.3.6

pear install Log
pear install Mail_Mime
pear install Mail
pear install File
pear install Date
pear install Auth_SASL
pear install Archive_Tar
pear install Net_SMTP
pear install Net_UserAgent_Detect
pear install Net_URL
pear install HTTP_Request
pear install HTML_Common
pear install HTML_Template_IT
pear install HTTP
pear install Cache
pear install Console_Getopt
pear install XML_SVG
pear install SOAP
pear install XML_Parser
pear install XML_RPC
pear install XML_Serializer
pear install Services_Weather
pear install Text_Wiki
pear install Net_DNS
pear install Net_Ping
pear install Net_Traceroute

pear upgrade Archive_Tar pear
pear upgrade-all
pear channel-update pear.php.net
pear upgrade-all
This is an overkill, but at least it makes sure we REALLY have everything!

Install Horde

Down load the latest production copies of HORDE.

tar -zxf /mnt/$version/utilities/horde/horde-3* -C /var/www/html/
cd /var/www/html/
mv horde-3* horde
cd /var/www/html/horde
We use a network mounted copy of all our setup files so the /mnt/$version refers to a location you set up as needed.

# remove from list as needed
for i in agora ansel chora gollem hermes imp ingo jonah klutz kronolith mimp mnemo nag nic passwd rakim sam swoosh turba vacation whups wicked
do
tar -zxf /mnt/$version/utilities/horde/$i* -C /var/www/html/horde
mv $i-* $i
done

mysql

Just for fun we stop and start mysql

/etc/init.d/mysqld stop
/etc/init.d/mysqld start
/etc/init.d/mysqld start

Horde Configuration

Now we create all the needed configuration files.

cd /var/www/html/horde/config
for foo in *.dist; do cp $foo `basename $foo .dist`; done

for i in agora ansel chora gollem hermes imp ingo jonah klutz kronolith mimp mnemo nag nic passwd rakim sam swoosh turba vacation whups wicked
do
cd /var/www/html/horde/$i/config
for foo in *.dist; do cp $foo `basename $foo .dist`; done
done

chown -R apache.apache /var/www/html/horde

Horde Passwords

You need to edit /var/www/html/horde/scripts/sql/create.mysql.sql and put in your own desired password that Horde will use to access the MYSql database.
Now create all the Horde database tables.

mysql -uroot -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/scripts/sql/create.mysql.sql
echo -n Horde –
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/kronolith/scripts/sql/kronolith.mysql.sql
echo -n kronolith –
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/mnemo/scripts/sql/mnemo.sql
echo -n mnemo –
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/nag/scripts/sql/nag.sql
echo -n nag –
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/turba/scripts/sql/turba_objects.mysql.sql
echo -n turba

mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/hermes/scripts/sql/hermes.sql
echo -n hermes
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/jonah/scripts/sql/jonah.sql
echo -n jonah
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/nic/scripts/sql/nic.sql
echo -n nic
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/rakim/scripts/sql/rakim.sql
echo -n rakim
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/sam/scripts/sql/spamd_sql.mysql.sql
echo -n sam
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql < /var/www/html/horde/swoosh/scripts/sql/swoosh.sql
echo -n swoosh
mysql -uroot horde -p$passwdmysql >/etc/mail/trusted-users

Dovecot

Edit /etc/dovecot.conf with what protocols you are going to use, we allow imap imaps pop3 pop3s.
Lets restart everything.

sed -ie ‘s/.*#protocols = imap imaps.*$/protocols = imap imaps pop3 pop3s/’ /etc/dovecot.conf \
&& grep “protocols = imap” /etc/dovecot.conf

/etc/init.d/dovecot restart
/etc/init.d/httpd restart
/etc/init.d/mysqld stop
/etc/init.d/mysqld start
/etc/init.d/mysqld start
/etc/init.d/vsftpd restart

Imp Server Configuration

Make your changes to /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php to reflect the name of your server.
Here is an example:

$servers[‘imap’] = array(
‘name’ => ‘IMAP Server’,
‘server’ => ‘mail.example.com’,
‘protocol’ => ‘imap/notls’,
‘port’ => 143,
‘folders’ => ”,
‘namespace’ => ”,
‘maildomain’ => ‘example.com’,
‘smtphost’ => ‘mail.example.com’,
‘realm’ => ‘example.com’,
‘preferred’ => ”
);
This is the script that we use to carry out the correct changes needed with /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php

sed -ie ‘s/.*’\”server’\” => ‘\”imap.example.com’\”,.*$/ ‘\”server’\” => ‘\”’$HOSTNAME”\”,/’ /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php \
&& grep “‘server’ => ‘” /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php

sed -ie ‘s/.*’\”maildomain’\” => ‘\”example.com’\”,.*$/ ‘\”maildomain’\” => ‘\”’$DOMAINNAME”\”,/’ /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php \
&& grep “‘maildomain’ => ‘” /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php

sed -ie ‘s/.*’\”smtphost’\” => ‘\”smtp.example.com’\”,.*$/ ‘\”smtphost’\” => ‘\”’$HOSTNAME”\”,/’ /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php \
&& grep “‘smtphost’ => ‘” /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php

sed -ie ‘s/.*’\”realm’\” => ‘\”’\”,.*$/ ‘\”realm’\” => ‘\”’$DOMAINNAME”\”,/’ /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php \
&& grep “‘realm’ => ‘” /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php

Look and Feel at Logon

sed -ie ‘s/.*

/var/www/html/horde/imp/templates/login/login.inc \

Register Modules

pico /var/www/html/horde/config/registry.php
Make active the following modules if you have installed them.

Testing
In a web browser goto yoursite/horde/test.php and yoursite/horde/imp/test.php and see that everything is going okay.

Configure in Horde

Go to yoursite/horde and you are presented with the Administrators page.
Set up Horde as needed.
Here are some of the settngs that we use.

Horde
General NOTHING TO DO
Database Database server/host
” Username to connect to the database as Password to connect with
” Database name to use
Authentication Which users should be treated as administrators (root, super-user) by Horde?
” What backend should we use for authenticating users to Horde?
” The application which is providing authentication Horde Sign Up
Sign Up NOTHING
Logging NOTHING
Preference System What preferences driver should we use?
” Driver configuration
” The name of the preference table in the database [horde_prefs]
DataTree System What backend should we use for Horde DataTree storage?
” Driver configuration
” The name of the data table in the database [horde_datatree]
Groups NOTHING

Hostname->Country Lookup NOTHING
Problem Reporting If problem reporting is enabled in an application’s menu, where should problem report emails be sent?
Menu Settings The URL of an image for the top of the Horde menu. The image should be no larger than 140 pixels wide by 40 pixels high to prevent the frame from scrolling.
” If a logo is displayed in the Horde menu, what URL (if any) should it link to?
Custom Function Hooks NOTHING
Portal Block Configuration NOTHING
Kolab Groupware Server NOTHING

Now try logging on to horde.
Can’t logon?
Check : /var/www/html/horde/imp/config/servers.php
Check : /etc/hosts
Check : /etc/hosts.allow
Check : /etc/sysconfig/network

Logon very slow?
Check: that you have hashed out any addresses books settings in turba/config/sources.php that you are not using

Horde runnning slow?
The most common reason for Horde to run slow is that the Address Book section is trying to access Address Books and Address Book systems that do not exist.
Edit /var/www/html/horde/turba/config/sources.php
Delete all the sections except

$cfgSources[‘localsql’] = array(
To do this find the first

);
that denotes the end of the localdsql section.
And delete everything after this.
