    Can any one please provide step by step installation of kopano core in ubuntu 18.04.



  • @yaseen take a look here

    https://kb.kopano.io/display/WIKI/Core



  • Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for your response & i have installed kopano following by below commands. & what next how to configure & access kopano core?

    mkdir -p /home/kopano/amd64
    cd /home/kopano/amd64
    wget https://download.kopano.io/community/core:/core-8.6.80.760_0%2B90-Ubuntu_18.04-amd64.tar.gz
    tar xfvz core-8.6.80.760_0+90-Ubuntu_18.04-amd64.tar.gz
    cd core-8.6.80.760_0+90-Ubuntu_18.04-amd64
    cd /home/kopano
    apt-ftparchive packages amd64/ > amd64/Packages
    echo “deb [trusted=yes] file:/home/kopano amd64/” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/kopano-com.list
    apt update
    apt install kopano-server-packages



  • i assume you also configured the Database as mentioned in the article and the kopano server process is up and running?
    Next would be to install webapp. Information on that you’ll find on https://kb.kopano.io/display/WIKI/Kopano+Groupware+Installation
    after that and the first article you can log in Kopana Webapp and “use” kopano.

    Postfix integration is also needed (https://kb.kopano.io/display/WIKI/Kopano+Groupware+Installation)

    you’ll find config examples /usr/share/doc/kopano/example-config here. Just copy them to /etc/kopano/and edit them to your needs.

    After that you edit server.cfgto your needs:

    ##############################################################
    # MYSQL SETTINGS (for database_engine = mysql)
    
    # MySQL hostname to connect to for database access
    #mysql_host = localhost
    
    # MySQL port to connect with (usually 3306)
    #mysql_port = 3306
    
    # The user under which we connect with MySQL
    mysql_user = kopano
    
    # The password for the user (leave empty for no password)
    mysql_password = *yourPassword*
    
    # Override the default MySQL socket to access mysql locally
    # Works only if the mysql_host value is empty or 'localhost'
    #mysql_socket =
    
    # Database to connect to
    #mysql_database = kopano
    
    # MySQL engine, per default it is InnoDB, which is the only supported
    # database engine. It is NOT advised to use a non-transactional engine
    # like MyISAM, Aria, etc.
    #mysql_engine = InnoDB
    
    # Where to place attachments. Value can be 'database', 'files' or 's3'
    #attachment_storage = files
    
    # Enable fsync as method to make sure attachments are stored on disk where
    # supported and will not be buffered by OS and/or filesystem. Please note
    # this setting will lower attachment write performance depending on your
    # environment but enhances data safety with disaster recovery.
    # Only affects 'files' attachment storage backend.
    #attachment_files_fsync = yes
    
    # When attachment_storage is 'files', use this path to store the files
    # When attachment_storage is 's3', use this path to set a prefix to all
    # attachment data of a certain cluster, for example 'attach'
    #attachment_path = /var/lib/kopano/attachments
    
    # Compression level for attachments when attachment_storage is 'files'.
    # Set compression level for attachments disabled=0, max=9
    #attachment_compression = 6
    

    it’s also good to take a look at the documentation https://documentation.kopano.io/kopanocore_administrator_manual/
