Why we made this installer

Mac OS X Server administrators usually wear many hats (entrepreneur, designer, etc.). We choose the Mac expecting it to have a nice GUI interface and all our basic needs to be met out of the box.
Apple used to provide webmail services in earlier versions of OS X Server (10.7 and earlier). For reasons unknown, webmail was dropped in 10.8 leaving it up to administrators to roll their own solution.

An OS X Server administrator with a Unix background could jump through all the hoops in a couple of hours – but lets face it, most OS X Server administrators would be stuck facing a day or more of tutorials, articles and frustration to get webmail working on their server.

As consultants specializing in mail services for OS X Server, we found ourselves repeating the same steps over and over with each new server installation. So we decided to apply our rule of thumb: if a repeatable process takes more than 30 minutes – document, automate and share.

What does the installer do?

Our installer for Roundcube for OS X Server installs Roundcube Webmail as a simple WebApp available to any website configured inside Server.app. When the WebApp is enabled (by default, its enabled for all sites), you can access webmail by adding /mail /webmail or /roundcube to your website URL.

Furthermore and if you haven’t already done so yourself, MCrypt (a requirement for Roundcube) is installed.
The Roundcube database is initialized. A core set of plugins is installed along with a choice of optional plugins. The finer details like: permissions, php.ini settings, apache config are all updated. Updated files are backed up and the process is logged to /var/log/installer.log
