    Does anyone know when "Horde Groupware" will be available within Cpanel ?

    http://www.horde.org/groupware/

    Or can we activate / install this ourselves on production servers without messing up something else ?

    Hi,

    hav a look into the documentation part...

    http://www.horde.org/groupware/docs/?f=INSTALL.html

    OR try the following steps...am not sure if it works..

    Go to Dag Wieer's website and install his RPMforge package. This will allow you to install Horde with Yum. The URL is:

    http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/FAQ.php#B

    Once you have downloaded and installed the package, run the following:

    yum update yum
    yum install horde turba nag kronolith mnemo gollem imp

    You will now have updated Yum to locate the fastest repository and the second line will install the Horde framework and the most useful plug-ins.

    Please look through the README files as Horde can be daunting to configure.



    Hope dis helps...

    Cheers!!!

    Thx, but I am curious if Cpanel is planning this Groupware thing in the near future ? I an not a fan of tweaking Horde myself... with a next update of Cpanel it is possible Horde will not work any longer. I just wanna be sure things will keep working...

    So Cpanel admins ?

    It's on our rather lengthy TODO list.

    I've used in on test servers, but it requires some manual fiddling. Essentially you need to modify the patches we apply (not many) to the vanilla horde source. The patches are in /usr/local/cpanel/src/3rdparty/gpl/patches

    Once that is done, the Groupware source is properly patched and installed to /usr/local/cpanel/base/horde then it will be accessible to your end users. The document at /usr/local/cpanel/src/3rdparty/gpl/README-horde explains how to make the custom install persist across cPanel updates.

    Please note that I have not tested the Groupware Webmail edition in a year so the patches may not work for the latest version (without some hefty modification that is).

    I'd be rather happy if Horde Groupware Webmail Edition (rather fancy name if you ask me) to be implemented and updated as standard webmail client (With option for more lightweight RoundCube).

    This would be great. Perhaps an upgrade to Horde IMP 4.3 would also be possible?

    This is tentative at this point. It likely will not make it into 11.25.0, but a later version of 11.25 depending upon testing results.

    Once we switch to the groupware edition we will no longer update Horde piece meal. Rather we will only distribute the groupware version.

    Any news on groupware? Easy installs?

    Hi All,

    Looking at disabling horde for end users (to use roundcube instead). But I really would love to try horde groupware before I knock people off horde completely.

    Any easy installs or news about an update?

    Regards,

    No ETA at this time

    At this time, Horde Groupware is still undergoing internal testing. There is no estimate for when it will be introduced into public cPanel builds.

    Dear Community,

    This post was created some two years ago and has had no major impact on changes made to the cpanel system over those two years. In fact, we are now well beyond the expected release of 11.25. There seems to be a great need for this in the community, especially for businesses who vie for a reasonable alternative to using microsoft exchange servers. With cPanel/WHM being one the top implimented and highest rated control panels, it seems that this should be a more important point for cPanel to consider.

    I recommend that everyone who has posted here or comes here in interest of some answers, take the few short minutes it takes to create a bugzilla account and vote for the bug related to implimenting this new feature...

    Bug 5683 - Implement Horde Groupware in cPanel

    Voting for this bug will show cPanel that this is something people want done!

    Additionally, to my surprise there is very little information on the internet about implimenting Horde Groupware into cPanel on your own. Maybe there is someone out there with the know-how who could enlighten the community on how you can do this on your own. It is often user-suggested implimentations that speed the process of adding a new feature like this to mainstream cPanel product. If someone would like to work with me directly, I am more than willing to setup a sandbox VPS to help create a step-by-step tutorial on Horde Groupware implimentation.

    I have requested an official status update from cPanel through bugzilla, as the projected milestone is well overdue and there are no real status updates for the outcome of this new feature. So vote today to show your interest!

    Horde Groupware was implemented in cPanel 11.28, which is now available in the CURRENT and RELEASE tiers. This is announced on the following page:

    Thank you for the very quick responses! Now I'm even more elated at the recent release! I'm going to get working on this right away, perhaps start a topic regarding the actual procedures to making this change. I do look forward to the release when it is standard to simply enable Horde Groupware from the Tweak Settings options. :)
