Installing horde...

After using the horde file manager for a project at work, I decided to give it a test drive at home. So far, so good. As this is just a dry run for the migration of tonns.com to home (as I don't have the right setup due to hardware failures). I was feeling kind-of lazy about it, so I followed this HOWTO to get postfix/SMTP-AUTH/TLS/dovecot going.

Key points on the install:
  • It's all about rpmforge. Dag Wieers really takes the headache out of installing all this with the rpmforge repository. Remember to send him an email thanking him - I did.

  • The list of packages I had to "yum install" is as follows:
    apr apr-util autoconf automake curl curl-devel cyrus-sasl-devel cyrus-sasl-gssapi dovecot e2fsprogs-devel gd httpd httpd-suexec ImageMagick krb5-devel libc-client libidn libidn-devel libtool libtool-libs libxml2-devel mysql mysql-server openssl-devel pam-devel perl-DBD-MySQL perl-DBI perl-HTML-Parser perl-HTML-Tagset perl-libwww-perl perl-URI php php-devel php-domxml php-gd php-imap php-ldap php-mysql php-odbc php-pear php-pear-log php-pear-mail_mime php-pecl-fileinfo php-pecl-memcache php-xmlrpc pkgconfig postgresql-libs rpm-build unixODBC vsftpd zlib-devel

  • PHP and PAM don't play nice together. The pam_auth module for php exists, but damn I couldn't get it to compile as a module and fuck-no, I'm not recompiling PHP.

  • Instead, setup IMP and MIMP before other modules, and use thier auth (i.e. imap auth) as the horde auth using this setup: http://wiki.horde.org/MIMPHowTo adding $conf['auth']['driver'] = 'composite'; as well.

  • Getting the latest PEAR modules to install was also a PITA. IMP requires HTTP_Request and Auth_SASL modules, but to get them installed I had to lock-step upgrade modules to interim versions before everything would update. Specifically:
    pear upgrade Archive_Tar
    pear upgrade PEAR-1.3.3
    pear upgrade PEAR
    pear upgrade XML_RPC-1.4.0
    pear upgrade-all
    pear install HTTP_Request
    pear install Auth_SASL
    Which finally left me with:
    Installed packages, channel pear.php.net:
    Package Version State
    Archive_Tar 1.3.1 stable
    Auth_SASL 1.0.2 stable
    Console_Getopt 1.2 stable
    DB 1.7.6 stable
    HTTP 1.4.0 stable
    HTTP_Request 1.4.0 stable
    Log 1.9.9 stable
    Mail 1.1.14 stable
    Mail_Mime 1.3.1 stable
    Net_SMTP 1.2.8 stable
    Net_Socket 1.0.6 stable
    Net_URL 1.0.14 stable
    PEAR 1.4.11 stable
    XML_Parser 1.2.7 stable
    XML_RPC 1.5.1 stable

Other than that, it was mostly following the horde INSTALL files. It's pretty simple.

Today, I'm gonna try to take a look at SpamAssassin, ClamAV, amavisd-new, CRM114, etc. etc. blah. blah.
