  • please check below output what it means?

    root@test:/# ps fax | grep kopano-se
    9225 pts/1 S+ 0:00 _ grep --color=auto kopano-se
    8230 ? Ssl 0:03 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/sbin/kopano-search -F

  • only kopano-search is running.
    I told you what your problem is.

    you are running different versions of kopano and that not possible.

    Again show these, because these will show it.

    dpkg -l | grep kopano
    apt-cache policy kopano-server

    First you should work on your linuxskills.

    Installation of kopano is very good for learning/teaching because it includes a lot of methods of installation/administration. You mix official repositories with external pakets from kopano. You need a few databaseskills (mysql -u root -p…, create databases,…), knowledge about postfix (smtp) to marry postfix with kopano in main.cf, knowledge about linuxcommandline (ps fax, lsof, tail -f /var/log/syslog), basics in https/ssl/tls…

    ps fax |grep kopano-se

    ps fax lists all processes, “|grep kopano-se” searchs all processes with “kopano-se” in processname, here “kopano-search”. Most important service in kopano is kopano-server and this is not running.
    Perhaps database doesn’t exist or wrong/missing user/password in server.cfg, wrong permissions for database…

  • Thanks for your advice & i definitely try to improve it.

    as per the documentation https://kb.kopano.io/display/WIKI/Core
    i have configured mysql added user in mysql & updated user details in /etc/kopano/server.cfg

    1. Do you have the file /etc/kopano/server.cfg?
    2. Which user/password/databasename? (test/pwd/kopano)?
    3. check this with
    mysql -u test -p
    1. on mysql-cli
    use database kopano;
    1. if you can use this database check syslog
    service kopano-server restart

    parallel in other cli for errors, if you have no log file in server.cfg
    kopano-server should log errors there

    tail -f /var/log/syslog

    maybe you should choose a way to get started with Kopano that provides an easier entry. For example https://wiki.z-hub.io/display/K4U/Documentation+-+Getting+Started or https://github.com/zokradonh/kopano-docker#how-to-get-started

  • Anyone having step by step document of kopano installation (English) in ubuntu ?

  • Kopano

  • Thanks for the link that was actually i am following from the beginning
    please share any step by step document or installation videos.

  • Kopano

    @mass there are always implementation choices to be made by the admin when implementing Kopano. Some things are also dependent on other factors (such as the usage pattern, number of users). A step-by-step document from where you can simply copy/paste commands is, as such, not available.

    The easy-entry method to get started with Kopano is indeed as @fbartels already mentioned Univention: https://wiki.z-hub.io/display/K4U/Documentation+-+Getting+Started
