Installing OpenWebMail in Slackware64 14.0

Topic about openwebmail installation and setup for can use mail over web. try to write down all my movings until i forget it - finish in 2-3 days, i think.

  1. First, download latest openwebmail:
  2. Create an folder when you want, say a “/ADISKS/openwebm_inst” and move openwebmail-current.tar.gz in that
  3. extract files with command
     tar -zxvBpf openwebmail-current.tar.gz 

    <note important>Use “tar” with “-zxvBpf” option, due to strange files permissions inside that archive. I try to untar it via midnight comander built-in archive tools, ans wrapsuid script not work due this… </note>

  4. move untar folder /cgi-bin/openwebmail to /var/www/cgi-bin/openwebmail
  5. move untar folder /data/openwebmail to your webserver root ( /var/www/openwebmail )
