Overview

The roundcube module allows you to easilly manage a roundcube webmail instance. Please see the roundcube project page for details about the service: www.roundcube.net

Module Description

Roundcube is a browser-based IMAP client. This module consists of the classes to implement roundcube. The default behaviour of the roundcube package installation on Debian, is to install the web frontend packages (and all the dependent packages) and mysql as the default backend service on the same host. This module was compiled in a way that allows the frontend and backend to be installed on the same or on different hosts. The frontend classes will install all the required packages on the host that will serve the roundcube web frontend. The backend classes will ensure that the required data store is configured and ready to serve data to the frontend. Note that the module, though very configurable by using parameterised classes, makes some assumptions and defaults about the environment that it runs on.

Setup

What roundcube affects:

  • package/service/configuration files for RoundCube
  • package/service/configuration files for Apache (optional, but set as default)
  • package/service/configuration files for PostgreSQL (optional, but set as default)
  • puppet master's runtime (via plugins)
  • listened-to ports

Setup Requirements:

Pluginsync is required if you haven't got all the dependent modules already installed on your puppet implementation. The following additional modules are installed from the forge as dependencies

  • puppetlabs/apache
  • puppetlabs/stdlib
  • puppetlabs/apt
  • puppetlabs/postgresql
  • puppetlabs/inifile

Beginning with roundcube

Whether you choose a single node or a multi-node setup, a basic setup of Roundcube will cause:

  • PostgreSQL to install on the node if it’s not already there.
  • Roundcube postgres database instance and user account to be created
  • the postgres connection to be validated and, if successful, Roundcube to be installed and configured
  • Roundcube connection to be validated
  • Apache to install on the node if it's not already there, mod-php installed and activated
  • roundcube virtualhost configuration created with default directories and options
  • roundcube-pgsql, roundcube-core and roundcube-plugins packages to be installed

Apply the roundcube::roundcubeweb as well as the roundcube::webservice::apache class on the host that will serve the roundcube web site. Apply the roundcube::database::postgresql class to the host where you want the database installed.

Limitations

  • The module has only been tested and built on Debian7 (Wheezy).
  • The wheezy-backports roundcube packages are required and installed, making use of the puppetlabs/apt module to pin them.
  • The module defaults to using apache as the web server and uses the puppetlabs/apache module to configure it.
  • The module defaults to using mod-php with apache.
  • The module defaults to using postgresql as the database server and uses the puppetlabs/postgresql module to configure it.
  • The database configuration is modified by using the puppetlabs/inifile module resources and updating the /etc/dbconfig-common/roundcube file with all the relevant database config options, then calling dpkg-reconfigure roundcube-core, as per the package documentation/recommendation.
  • So far no support for adding and installing additional roundcube plugins has been done, but this will probably happen in the next iteration of the module.

Development

Feel free and please add compatibility with other platforms, databases and webservers, but please adhere to the puppet modules
