Trying to get Kopano up and running on Ubuntu 18
Cannot get the server up as it gives an error on MySQL in the server.log file
Access denied for user ‘kopano-server’@‘localhost’ to database kopanoserver
The strange thing is that the server.cfg file does not contain any reference to user: kopano-server or database kopanoserver
It should be the default: ‘kopano’@‘localhost’ and databasename kopano
Where do these settings come from and how to get this fixed.
Hi @Thuizt ,
yes these values are definitely not our defaults. Sadly you give very few other information apart from your used distro.
How and from where did you install Kopano?
Which version are you currently running?
Could it be that you are using the packages from the downstream Ubuntu repo?
Indeed, I was a bit limited in the info.
Did indeed install from the Ubuntu Repo. Easiest way to get up an running it looked to me. In the meantime already ran into other strange issues.
Will reinstall and start over and this time not “the easy way”
Thanks for answering,
Yes, I think the Ubuntu devs just took the half finished packages from Debian Testing. A lot has effort has gone into the Debian downstream packaging since then so starting with Debian Buster this experience will definitely improve.
Getting lost and it isn’t that complicated … or is it …
Reinstalled (repartitioned) Ubuntu 18 from mini image with SSH, curl and gnupg.
Followed these instructions for Kopano install https://kb.kopano.io/display/WIKI/Core
kopano-server-packages wasn’t known so installed packages seperate
And again kopano server doesn’t start
Access denied for user ‘kopano-server’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)
The user under which we connect with MySQL
mysql_user = kopano
The password for the user (leave empty for no password)
mysql_password = xxxxxxxxxx*
Can someone please point me to a working installation on Ubuntu 18 or explain how to fix ??

Im repeating installs based on the documation site and really its not getting easier to install it.
it laks, a clear install order, the documentation info is good, just hard to follow.
But yes, This is a big improvement
And that user did not read the “Configure SQL database” part.
