Kopano 8.5.5 - Configuration Files missing after fresh install

i newly installed Kopano 8.5.5 on SLES12SP3.
After Installation all of the *.cfg files are missing in /etc/kopano.
Where i can find them or is there a new location beside /etc/kopano?

hi @gssd,

it should be placed in /usr/share/doc/kopano/example-config
if you cant find it use:

locate server.cfg | grep kopano

you need package “mlocate” - quite usefull
after installing:

locate server.cfg | grep kopano


hi, and thanks @Coffee_is_life

ist this now by design?

In the past the config files where always located in “/etc/zarafa” or “/etc/kopano” after package installation.

Yes, for rpm based distributions this is by design. See https://documentation.kopano.io/kopano_changelog/kc.html#kopano-core-8-5 for more information.


we use Kopano on SLES12, unfortunate I can’t find the configuration files as stated in: https://kb.kopano.io/display/WIKI/Core. /usr/share/doc/kopano/example-config
do not exist on SLES12.
But I found this files in: /usr/share/doc/packages/kopano/example-config/. So the Wiki page mentioned above is incorrect too.
Removing the new configuration files (.rpmnew) from /etc/kopano is a bad idea. Migrating any changes to current configuration files is now much more work then before.

Not really. .rpmnew files get, in essence, created whenever the defaults change. Since config files exist for the purpose of conscious overrides of these built-in defaults, bothering the admin at every upgrade is pointless.
