IMP, got my webmail working


got horde/IMP up and running, now i have webmail....very nice software they
put together for free. my university (Georgia Tech) uses the same software, I just
have to get sendmail to recieve mail and get the database stuff put in, but as far
as IMP goes....it works like a charm, had to download a bunch of rpms to do it
but it wasnt too bad, i ended up with a newer version of php in the end.

man this is great, everything is flowing through mysql...session tracking, preferences, addressbook even authentication (i think). this has to be the most success i've had in a short period of time with setting something up that could be considered complicated.....but i feel like i cheated using the rpms, but even still that didnt make it extremely easy. anyway im happy with this webmail system.

imp is pretty cool, installed with a small amount of fiddling, but it works great. really shows squirrelmail up in terms of prettiness and professionalism...

IMP only shows blank page!

Good for you guys but I'm out of luck.
I've now tried to setup the imp client on a slackware 9, with apache 1.3.27, mysql, php 4.3.2.

Everything seems to work fine; I can open the test pages both in horde/ and in horde/imp/. But if I try to open any other file, such as index.php, all I get is a blank page!
I use WinXP/ie as client.
Anyone know what Iíve done wrong?

Horde complains that I have to compile php "--with-gettext". As I understand it already is! But I donít think thatís whatís wrong...

Configure Command
'./configure' '--prefix=/usr' '--disable-static' '--with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs' '--enable-discard-path' '--with-config-file-path=/etc/apache' '--enable-safe-mode' '--with-openssl' '--enable-bcmath' '--with-bz2' '--with-pic' '--enable-calendar' '--enable-ctype' '--with-gdbm' '--with-db3' '--with-imap-ssl=/tmp/pine4.56/imap/c-client' '--with-imap=/tmp/pine4.56/imap/c-client' '--enable-dbase' '--enable-ftp' '--with-gd' '--enable-gd-native-ttf' '--with-jpeg-dir=/usr' '--with-png' '--with-gmp' '--with-mysql=shared,/usr' '--with-xml=shared,/usr' '--with-gettext=shared,/usr' '--with-mm=/usr' '--enable-trans-sid' '--enable-shmop' '--enable-sockets' '--with-regex=php' '--enable-sysvsem' '--enable-sysvshm' '--enable-yp' '--enable-memory-limit' '--with-tsrm-pthreads' '--enable-shared' '--disable-debug' '--with-zlib=/usr'

Horde test page:
Horde Versions
Horde: 2.2.3
IMP: 3.2.1 (run IMP tests)
PHP Version
View phpinfo() screen
PHP Version: 4.3.2
PHP Major Version: 4.3
PHP Minor Version: 2
PHP Version Classification: release
You are running a supported version of PHP.
PHP Module Capabilities

Horde will not run without gettext support. Compile php --with-gettext before continuing.

K.Kirk, did you actually work out this problem with horde? I have exactly the same problem now with an installation on horde on a slackware 9.1 box. It complains that PHP has not been compiled with gettext, yet it has as a shared library.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Well, after some investigation, under a standard install from Slackware 9.1 iso you need to take additional steps to make the horde framework (i assume you followed indications in INSTALL FILES) working :
1) You need to have installed the package glibc-i18n
-- download it from http://www.slackware.org/pb/?vers=sl...2.3.2-noarch-3
-- install with pkgtool
2) In /etc/apache/php.ini set register_argc_argv = On, it's Off by default
3) As root install some additional module for pear
-- #pear install Date
-- #pear install HTML_Common
-- #pear install HTML_Select
and any other package needed by the test script http://site/horde/test.php
4) Enable gettext extension in php.ini
-- extension=gettext.so

I hope this helps, it's been a discrete work finding a way to make things happen :-)

Cheers
Paolo Dell'Unto

Paolo, thanks for the reply. This has solved my problems as far as getting horde up and running. These steps that you outlined were exactly what I needed.

Thanks for the time you took to post your reply!

Padwanna.

You're welcome!!
I've also posted a note at the Horde faq team, cause i think horde is a quite common application as Slackware is a very good distro, hope they will add these steps.

I am using slackware 10.
I am wanting to get the new Horde 3.x to work, but I am unable to get domxml to install.
Do I need to install php from source?
