  • 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
