    One of my clients like to have a system with a shared calendar/e-mail and filesharing.
    Something like phpgroupware or Zimbra.

    I have had a look at the Zimbra documentation and i think it is not compatible with my ISPCOnfig server.
    I also do not know if phpgroupware is compatible.

    Is there anyone out here, who knows such a system, which is easy to use and compatible with ISPConfig?
    (Document sharing is the most important feature).

    Any advise is very welcome!

    If I remember correctly, phpgroupware is "just" a php web application, this means that it is compatible with ISPConfig.

    Zimbra is not compatible because it has its own postfix server setup and will conflict with the way ISPConfig configures postfix.

    Do you use the correct database username and password in the phpgroupware configuration, also the correct hostname (most of the time this is "localhost")?

    You have a space after your database and user name. Remove it.

    Hi all,

    My "two thumbs up" goes to Group-Office at .

    I've been using them for about two years now and absolutely love it. I've got several clients running it also. It requires php / mysql and they have a free version along with a paid version. I personally along with a few of the clients are using the free version as it does most everything we need.

    Very easy to install also.

    Thanks everyone for sharing your experience.

    My client has chosen for KnowledgeTree DMS, filesharing was the most important item. I like to give Group-Office a try soon!
