Topic: Upgrade roundcube provided with iredadmin

- Linux distribution name and version: Debian SQUEEZE
- iRedMail version and backend (LDAP/MySQL): iRedAdmin-Pro-LDAP-1.6.2

I don't know if it's useful for some iredmail users, but I have updated my roundcube webmail from 0.5.2 to 0.7.1.

This is how I do it.
Backup database before upgrade :
mysqldump --opt -p roundcubemail > /root/DumpSQL-PreUPDRoundCube.sql

I download the lastest roundcube package
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/projec … 7.1.tar.gz

I extract it in the right place :

cd /usr/share/apache2/
tar xvfz /root/roundcubemail-0.7.1.tar.gz
chown -R www-data: roundcubemail-0.7.1

I copy config files from the previous version.
cp -a roundcubemail-0.5.2/config/main.inc.php roundcubemail-0.7.1/config/
cp -a roundcubemail-0.5.2/config/db.inc.php roundcubemail-0.7.1/config/
cp -a roundcubemail-0.5.2/plugins/managesieve/config.inc.php plugins/managesieve/
cp -a roundcubemail-0.5.2/plugins/password/config.inc.php plugins/password/

I remove symbolic link and I renew it on the right folder.
rm roundcubemail
ln -s roundcubemail-0.7.1 roundcubemail

I enable the roundcube installer in config/main.inc.php file.

vi config/main.inc.php
# Modify the following line :
//$rcmail_config['enable_installer'] = false;
$rcmail_config['enable_installer'] = true;

I install some package found missing by installer :
aptitude install php5-intl

I set my current timezone for php
vi /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
# Add this value for your timezone :
date.timezone = "Europe/Paris"

I reload apache to read changes.
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

I will upgrade roundcube mysql database with yhis commands :
mysql -p roundcubemail
source SQL/mysql.update.sql;

Launch installer from this url:

Installer valid installation and database upgrade.
Installer give the way to download main.inc.php and db.inc.php files.
Download them and replace your old config files, because some parameters are missing in the old roundcube version.

I correct ownership for the file that I copy manually.
chgrp www-data config/*

You must remove installer functionnality by modifying config/main.inc.php again, like this :

$rcmail_config['enable_installer'] = false;
//$rcmail_config['enable_installer'] = true;

Roundcube is now on the last stable version.
