Hello, I followed your instructions and it worked very well in centos 6, a separate question, how do you put the box where the commands are on your blog? I really like it and I would like to put something similar on my blog, I have a wordpress blog, I’m a beginner lol
Here you are, I use the following WordPress Plugin: Crayon Syntax Highlighter – https://wordpress.org/plugins/crayon-syntax-highlighter/
What files do i need to keep so i don’t lose my configurations?
1. Most of configuration is saved in a SQL database, in my case MariaDB.
2. The Roundcube setup is an in-place upgrade, it’s made to preserve your configuration.
3. It’s seems like the config files are saved under:
That’s why I create a backup of the whole folder in step 2.
Hi Marco, thanks for your guide!
I having a problem with the last step. Any idea where I need to install the last version in VESTA / Centos 7?
But, I dont know in what directory install the last version downloaded.
When I try this: # bin/installto.sh /var/lib/roundcubemail
Console returns this: # ERROR: No valid Roundcube installation found at /var/lib/roundcubemail
The error states, that roundcube is not installed in the path provided. You know where you installed roundcoube, don’t you?
Hello Marco. Just want to share a thumb up for the guide, worked like a charm, I used twice in a row to upgrade from 1.3 to 1.4 to 1.5 branch. Worked again perfectly, was clear and efficient. Thank you. Nicolas.
