Fix for Roundcube on Debian 8 (users can't send email)

Postby dpeca » Thu Jul 21, 2016 4:34 pm

It looks like Debian 8 comes with Roundcube that has bad symlink to tinyMCE, so it breaks interface for sending email - on EVERY Debian 8 server.

Here is very easy fix for it.

In your SSH console, as root, just run (paste) these commands:

Code: Select all

rm /usr/share/roundcube/program/js/tinymce
mkdir /root/vesta-temp-dl
wget -O /root/vesta-temp-dl/roundcubemail.tar.gz https://github.com/roundcube/roundcubemail/releases/download/1.2.0/roundcubemail-1.2.0-complete.tar.gz
tar -xzf /root/vesta-temp-dl/roundcubemail.tar.gz -C /root/vesta-temp-dl
mv /root/vesta-temp-dl/roundcubemail-* /root/vesta-temp-dl/roundcubemail
mkdir /usr/share/roundcube/program/js/tinymce
cp -R /root/vesta-temp-dl/roundcubemail/program/js/tinymce/* /usr/share/roundcube/program/js/tinymce/
rm -rf /root/vesta-temp-dl

This will fix a problem.

Since this is a Debian 8 bug (not a Vesta bug), I'm not sure is it good idea to include this fix to vst-install-debian.sh script.
I can make a pull request, but not sure if Vesta developers wants this fix - since it's a Debian8 bug, not a Vesta bug.

However, Roundcube is totally useless with this bug, and this bug is on all Debian8 servers, by default.

Thank you mate, noticed that too and was surprised that this bug comes from debian since my first choice for vps was always debian.
