Topic: iRedmail Pro - new install confusion

==== Required information ====
- iRedMail version: iRedAdmin-Pro-LDAP-2.1
- Store mail accounts in which backend (LDAP/MySQL/PGSQL): LDAP
- Linux/BSD distribution name and version: Centos 5.6
- Related log if you're reporting an issue:
====

I am a bit lost using these install instructions: http://www.iredmail.org/admin_installation_rhel.html

There's no mention of what LDAP to use, what schema, etc.

Following the instructions just does not work and are also wrong, for example : there's no settings.ini, just settings.py.

am I supposed to first install the OSE version and then upgrade ?

Re: iRedmail Pro - new install confusion

Hi,

Am sure Zhang will explain better BUT

you install first iredmail 0.8.6 choosing LDAP etc.. (ldap and whatever needed schemas are then installed for you) when all that is complete you then UPGRADE iredadmin normal (which is installed by default with iredmail 0.8.6) to iredadmiPRO as mentioned on the page :

Migration Tip: If you already have iRedAdmin open source edition installed, you can simply migrate it to iRedAdmin-Pro. (click the link which makes you go to iredmail.org/wiki/index.php?title=Migrate/iRedAdmin-Pro/OSE-Pro

The upgrade is simple and easy and does not require choosing ldaps, schemas etc..

regards,

*) iRedAdmin-Pro requires iRedMail, and it works only with iRedMail.
*) iRedMail will configure OpenLDAP to include necessary LDAP schema files.

My mistake, forgot to sync installation guides. Fixed moment ago.
The latest iRedAdmin-Pro uses different file format for config file, it's now a Python source file (settings.py) instead of ini style plain text (settings.ini).

iRedAdmin open source edition should be installed during iRedMail if you chose to install it. It's easier to upgrade from iRedAdmin open source edition to iRedAdmin-Pro:

Re: iRedmail Pro - new install confusion

Thank you, this makes things much clear.
I installed OSE, made sure everything works and then upgraded to Pro.
However I now unable to login, I get a "Error: Username or password is incorrect."

I have logged into the ldapadmin and made sure postmaster@mydomain.com has the "domainGlobalAdmin" attribute set to yes.

Anything else I should try ?

*) Did you use the correct login username an password? The login username must be a full email address.
*) Does this username/password work before you upgrading iRedAdmin-Pro?

Yes, I've used the same user/pass ( as noted in /var/www/iRedMail-0.8.6/iRedMail.tips )

Admin of domain mydomain.com:
    * Account: postmaster@mydomain.com
    * Password: *my*pass

*) Does this username/password work before you upgrading iRedAdmin-Pro?

Yes, I have logged in successfully with this user before the upgrade.

Re: iRedmail Pro - new install confusion

Did you try the latest iRedAdmin-Pro-LDAP-2.1.1? If it still doesn't work for you, could you please give me ssh access (with root privilege) to your server for deep debugging?
