Roundcube webmail installer for OS X 10.8/10.9 with Server 2.x/3.x

Please do not use the installer with Server 3.2.1 for time being. The latest Server Update breaks Postgres, which Roundcube relies upon.

The latest release of our Roundcube webmail installer is now compatible with both:
OS X 10.8.x Mountain Lion with Server 2.x
OS X 10.9.x Mavericks with Server 3.0.x

See current changelog for a complete list of fixes and additions.
Please read our FAQs as well.

This package will:
- Install Roundcube 0.9.5 as a WebApp
- Configure the postgres database
- Configure managesieve server-side filtering (Vacation Replies)
- Automatically configure a carddav plugin
- Install mcrypt (if you don't have it installed/functioning already)

The topicdesk Roundcube installer is a free download.

  • When can I expect a fix for roundcube? I have Mavericks Server 3.2.1 and cannot install due to Postgres issue.

    Roundcube is fine....
    The 3.2.1 update broke postgres

    We have a script posted a few comments above which resets the postgres/roundcube database and restores functionality.

    For those that are NOT using carddav, you'll have faster logins if you disable the carddav plugin.
    This should do the trick.. No need to restart services, the change takes effect immediately

    sudo perl -p -i -e "s/'managesieve', 'carddav'/'managesieve'/g" /usr/local/topicdesk/roundcube/WebApp/config/

    The PostgresRoundcubeFix script only touches your postgres/roundcube installation.
    I see no reason it would effect any others services.

    Of course - always best to backup :-)

    This seems to be working well to repair the postgres/roundcube issue.
    Reposting to push it to the bottom.
    This script will reset the postgres DB and re-initialize the Roundcube database.
    User settings are stored in the Postgres DB, so users will need to reset their preferences.
    Vacation/Filter settings are retained and the roundcube config is retained.
    Assuming you download and expand in your downloads folder, run as follows:
    sudo ~/Downloads/PostgresRoundcubeFix
