Topic: Is iRedMail for me?
Ok, I have tried to install iRedMail how I want about 6 times so far and am just about to give up and go with the mailserver install on howtoforge, however I do not need or want Virtualmin.
Heres what I am trying to do:
I run a VPS server that hosts *my* 3 domains only. I never plan to host anyone else sites and if I do it would be friends only. The issue here is I *do not* want to use Apache but want to use nginx with php-fpm.
Php-fpm requirs PHP 5.3.x and this is where the problems start. I have enabled 3 extra repos on my Centos 5.5 install - epel, ius and remi. The remi repo has PHP 5.3.4 as standard (php.i386) and epel has nginx 8.5.4 - just what I want. I also want mysql & mysql-server 5.5, again available in the remi repo.
However, iRedMail seems to want parts from PHP 5.2 and trying to install it after adding the above repos causes the yum install to fail due to dependencies.
My last install I did the "manual" thing in the wiki telling iRedMail to not install Apache/PHP because I had done already but when I told it NOT to install MySQL it tried to anyway so I had to go into packages.sh and physically remove any reference to mysql for RHEL/Centos. That looks to have caused a problem with the install of Roundcube. To be honest, the ONLY time I have even had iRedmail working to the full is when I tried a rock stock install but it soon went bad when trying to update things.
So, the bottom line is: Can I actually install iRedMail as a product along with PHP 5.3.4 and mysql 5.5? How, because I am lost now, probably from trying to accomplish it too many times.
