Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Re: Centos 8

Dear all,

Currently we miss 2 required packages in CentOS 8.1, and i need your help to make it happen.

  • php-imap

  • postfix-pcre. Used by Postfix for PCRE (Perl Compatible Regular Expressions) support, you can verify it with command "postconf -m". iRedMail uses several PCRE lookup tables. According to RedHat 8 document, postfix-pcre is available, but it doesn't. There's also a bug report in RedHat buzilla, also user report in CentOS forum.

  • uwsgi (and all its sub-packages like uwsgi-plugin-python2, uwsgi-logger-syslog). uwsgi is a WSGI server, used to run mlmmjadmin, iRedAdmin(-Pro). Latest Fedora release has uwsgi packages, there's bug report in Red Hat bugzilla (reported few months ago). I sent email to uwsgi (EPEL) package maintainer about 1 month ago, no reply yet. If there's other (Python) WSGI server like "gunicorn" available, we can adopt to gunicorn too, but neither exists.

I need your help to contact package maintainers to help submit the packages. They all were present in RedHat/CentOS official repo of EPEL for RedHat/CentOS 7, it should not be hard to build it on 8.

There were more missed while CentOS 8 was released, e.g. dovecot-pigeonhole (sieve server), postfix-ldap, but they are available now.

Re: Centos 8

uwsgi -> couldnt we install it via `pip install uwsgi` ? thats the way i installed it in the past.
uwsgi-logger-syslog -> The syslog plugin is embedded in the binary when you install uwsgi via pip

why postfix-pcre is missing .... weird .... will contact maintainer.

Sure we can do it this way, but better install a RPM from CentOS repo and get update with 'yum update'.

Re: Centos 8

Hello, any updates on Centos 8 support?

Re: Centos 8

CentOS 8 support is done in iRedMail Easy platform, but still need some time to test it.
Downloadable iRedMail installer will catch up later.

Re: Centos 8

Hi, similar question here, when do you think can we install on Centos 8 (without easy), but through the installer?

13

Re: Centos 8

iRedMail Easy will support CentOS 8 first, then the downloadable installer.

Re: Centos 8

Dear all,

CentOS 8 support is now available in the latest development edition, you can download from GitHub for testing. All 3 backends are supported: MariaDB, PostgreSQL, OpenLDAP.

Note: it may be still buggy, don’t try it on production yet.

Give the repo a star please, send me cup of coffee too. smile

Has anyone tried it out yet and how is it going so far?

It does not appear listed as supported on the web site yet...

Re: Centos 8

I did some tests, but at this moment SOGo still do not support CentOS 8, so calendar is missing.

Zhang did a great job, but I think even him can't do anything until all the pieces of the puzzle are on the table..
