Helping setting up Squirrelmail in Unbuntu 9.10


hello, I just installed squirrelmail and configured it using the guild from the following website

http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/200

Im stuck at the section where it talks about adding information into the apache configuration file, below is what the guide says to do

Now to make the install web-accessible. With the configuration files you'll find an Apache configuration snippet you can edit and add to your Apache config. It's wise to add it to the configuration of Apache-SSL aswell, so your users can access their mailbox over a secure connection. After that, reload Apache. We should be done!

Im totally lost at this point as this part of the guide is completely confusing and Im not sure what it's talking about or even what config files to edit and what to add in them.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Fixed but new error
I fixed this by doing copying the squirrelmail/apache.conf to the apache root dirc/sites-available. I am not able to view squirrelmail but I get the following error when trying to login. I have installed cyprus-imad but I guess it's not running.

Error connecting to IMAP server: tls://localhost.
111 : Connection refused

I believe in Ubuntu, you will need to edit httpd.conf. Copying the apache.conf to a web directory will essentially do nothing except make the file visable in a browser. It may also be the file "/etc/apache2/apache2.conf",

You will have to do a sudo nano/vi/gedit depending on your installed text editor to the apache configuration file. I like to add things to the end, but there may be a specific section you need to add the snippet to.

Squirrelmail Unknown user or password incorrect.

Thanks for the reply. I have gotten all that to work but I have ran into a new issue, which is

I removed squirrelmail, postfix, dovecot, etc. and followed this guide http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ispconfig-3-p3

now after completing this guide, im back at square one unable to log into squirrelmail all together I look at the /var/log/mail.log and get the following

Mar 1 15:30:02 requiem postfix/smtpd[21638]: disconnect from localhost[127.0.0.1]
Mar 1 15:30:02 requiem imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Mar 1 15:30:02 requiem imapd: Disconnected, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], time=0
Mar 1 15:30:02 requiem pop3d: Connection, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1]
Mar 1 15:30:02 requiem pop3d: Disconnected, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1

looks like it's trying to connect from the wrong ip and what not

No, you are on the right track. That means you are trying to connect from the local machine, ie localhost, 127.0.0.1. It's the local loopback/internal IP that linux is using to denote completely trusted local traffic. Try this from another machine:

telnet (ip of your machine) 110

This will initiate a connection to port 110 to test pop3. Do the same for SMTP, and post the text.

If you are using Vista or higher as the different machine, you may have to go to add/remove windows features and add the telnet client.
