    Hello Folks.

    Roundcube doesnt save / remember my settings that I change.

    I change language, timezone and identities and press save. After logout and login the settings are back to default..

    What is wrong?

    Roundcube is still in alpha or beta state, so this might cause your problems...

    I'm useing Roundcube on my ISPConfig box and I'm very happy of it. I'm useing mysql to store user preferences and it works.

    Have you tested your mysql connection to specified db?
    Have you switched 'auto_create_option' to TRUE?

    Try setting debug_level to 4 (show) and see if some error appear on the page when you set some preference.

    okay figured something out

    when i login with web1_new1 i can see address book stuff i have added and identities....

    but when i login with the alias [email protected]one of the information appears ....

    i think its a user linking issue with the postfix/db/roundcube?

    can anyone help?

    I do not recommend to use RoundCube for a production environment at this moment.
    It is still in developement.
    I had a look at it some time ago and there are still bugs like:

    Settings which are not saved
    Incompatible with some browsers like Opera.
    You see this incompatibility for example when you use the CC or BCC option.
    And unfortunately some other things i do not know.

    Some bugs are fixed already in the developement version already,
    but this bugfixes are not included in the RoundCube version which is available in the package for ISPConfig.

    The userinterface is really nice, but that is it at this moment.
    Matter of time...

    How you know the db is updated?
    Have you seen some record in db?

    Longer term it would make sense to push for an IMAP based webmail client. RoundCube *would* be great although Squirrelmail prepackaged with some of the options (seen it for VHCS) looks pretty great too.

    i have same problem with roundcube mail
    after configuring and creating mysql connection and database , its successfully changing database record of identites but every time u log on its creating new identity with [email protected]
    how does roundcube handle where to get username and email for initial login and database, looks like its taking those infro from somewhere else than database
  13. falko

    falko Super Moderator Howtoforge Staff

    I think it's guessing the email address from the username you use to log in + the server's hostname. I don't know RoundCube, but I think you can set the sender address somewhere, just as you do in any normal email client such as Outlook.

    Found thats here

    and its looks like no way yet to make roudcube working properly, automatic creating accounts and saving settings with ISPConfig yet, so we are back to UebiMail :-( realy dificult to use it after clear and butifull interface of roundcube, waiting for next releases of roundcube :)

    I've fixed this roundcube issue btw, for anyone who's interested. (the roundcube pkg installation you can download from the main download site). The problem was that roundcube would lookup your username from the email address only after checking whether your settings are in the database. Weird and obviously a bug.

    Goto /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/roundcubemail/program/include/

    Search down to find the function called "rcmail_login"

    Find the following piece of code:

      // query if user already registered
      $sql_result = $DB->query("SELECT user_id, username, language, preferences
                                FROM ".get_table_name('users')."
                                WHERE  mail_host=? AND (username=? OR alias=?)",
      // user already registered -> overwrite username
      if ($sql_arr = $DB->fetch_assoc($sql_result))
        $user_id = $sql_arr['user_id'];
        $user = $sql_arr['username'];
      // try to resolve email address from virtuser table
      if (!empty($CONFIG['virtuser_file']) && strstr($user, '@'))
        $user = rcmail_email2user($user);
    And change it to:

      // try to resolve email address from virtuser table
      if (!empty($CONFIG['virtuser_file']) && strstr($user, '@'))
        $user = rcmail_email2user($user);
      // query if user already registered
      $sql_result = $DB->query("SELECT user_id, username, language, preferences
                                FROM ".get_table_name('users')."
                                WHERE  mail_host=? AND (username=? OR alias=?)",
      // user already registered -> overwrite username
      if ($sql_arr = $DB->fetch_assoc($sql_result))
        $user_id = $sql_arr['user_id'];
        $user = $sql_arr['username'];
    Look at it carefully, we're moving the bottom block of code upwards.

    Once that done, it should work. If you're still having problems, make sure /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/web/roundcubemail/config/ is correctly configured. Specifically for my CentOS 4.4 system I had to change the following line:

    $rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '/etc/mail/virtusertable';
    Hope that helps people out. Now you can login with the user name, or the email address, and the preferences are saved perfectly across both. :)

    Veroxii, you're a hero! This made RoundCube something worth using. I posted a link to your post over in the forums too.
