Sad employees about loosing Webaccess



  • Hi Kopano team,
    after upgrading to kopano we also lost webaccess. At many jobs I earned bad krittiks about that.
    many employees where really satisfied with the webaccess.

    …I only whanted to let you know.
    Regards…

    I have managed to have webaccess working with kopano. It requires however a lot of tweaking on the backend and copying files around and it is becoming increasingly difficult to support but, so far, I still have it working.



  • Hi @ mcostan,
    do you have some tips for me?


  • Translator

    A lot of trial and error but essentially I would start by hand copying all the installation directories of where the old webaccess resided.

    The latest Kopano core (you may not be using that one) also changed the location of some libraries (if I remember correctly) which means I also had to copy those around.

    In any case it depends what you are using this for. If it it in a production environment with a paid for subscription then it is probably not a good idea as your tweaking won’t be supported by Kopano.

    If it is a community installation or you have access to the server and you are not afraid of experimenting (and getting it wrong occasionally) then yes, you can try.



  • Just to add to @kmeyer’s sentiment. I’ve heard from a couple of users who prefer webaccess over webapp because webapp can be a pain to load if they are running over GSM in a remote bad mobile reception area.

    Webaccess is much better over a low speed link.

    Hi Galen,

    is it not an option to use Z-Push with mobile devices?

  • Hi Manfred,

    The users i’ve had the comments from only really have access to a browser. All other tools that they use are accessed from a browser too so that if when they trash the netbook they don’t lose anything.

  • I have WebAccess working just fine.
    I’m running Kopano in a Virtual environment, and as such I have separated out many of the services (including the webserver). When we moved from Zarafa to Kopano, I just kept a copy of the old webserver server running.
    On the new webserver, I have the location /webaccess reverse proxied to the old server. This way I don’t need to worry about conflicting dependencies or anything.

    Hope that helps.

  • @robertwbrandt That’s a good workaround, thanks for the tip.

    Once i’ve got my troublesome migration completed i’ll take a look at the webaccess possibilities.

  • I just discovered that my webaccess just stopped working.

    I found that the default line:
    define(“DEFAULT_SERVER”,“http://KopanoServer:236/zarafa”);
    Needed to be changed to:
    define(“DEFAULT_SERVER”,“http://KopanoServer:236/”);
