If you already have iRedAdmin open source edition installed, you can migrate from iRedAdmin open source edition to iRedAdmin-Pro with just few steps:

Summary

  • This installation guide is used to install iRedAdmin-Pro-PGSQL on openSUSE.
  • iRedAdmin-Pro is official web-based admin panel for iRedMail. There're three editions available:
    • iRedAdmin-Pro-LDAP: works with OpenLDAP backend.
    • iRedAdmin-Pro-MySQL: works with MySQL backend.
    • iRedAdmin-Pro-PGSQL: works with PostgreSQL backend.

System requirements

  • iRedMail-0.8.0 or later releases.
  • iRedAdmin-Pro-PGSQL-1.0 or later releases.
  • Required Packages. They all are installed automatically during iRedMail installation.
    • Apache, 2.2+. Web server.
      • mod_wsgi 2.1+. Apache module used to host Python application which supports the Python WSGI interface.
    • Python 2.4+, core programming language. Warning: Python 3.x is not supported yet.
      • web.py, 0.32+. A python-powered web framework.
      • psycopg2. A interface to the popular PostgreSQL database server that provides the Python database API.

iRedAdmin will run with a low-privileged system user: iredadmin, which is created automatically during iRedMail installation, too.

    • If you purchased iRedAdmin-Pro-PGSQL, you should already have it. If not, please mail to support@ iredmail.org to get a download link.

  • Copy iRedAdmin to /srv/www/, set correct file permissions, and create symbol link.
Terminal:
# tar xjf iRedAdmin-x.y.z.tar.bz2 -C /srv/www/
# cd /srv/www/
# chown -R iredadmin:iredadmin iRedAdmin-x.y.z
# chmod -R 0755 iRedAdmin-x.y.z
# ln -s iRedAdmin-x.y.z iredadmin

  • Restart apache to enable mod_wsgi:
Terminal:
# /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Create necessary PostgreSQL database and grant privileges

  1. Create SQL database: iredadmin. Used to store sessions, admin operation logs, etc.
  2. Create SQL user: iredadmin, with password 'plain_password' (without quotes).
  3. Create required SQL tables and grant privileges.
Terminal:
# su - postgres
$ psql
sql> CREATE DATABASE iredadmin WITH TEMPLATE template0 ENCODING 'UTF8';
sql> CREATE ROLE iredadmin WITH LOGIN ENCRYPTED PASSWORD 'plain_password' NOSUPERUSER NOCREATEDB NOCREATEROLE;
sql> \c iredadmin;
sql> \i /srv/www/iredadmin/docs/samples/iredadmin.pgsql;
sql> GRANT INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE,SELECT on sessions,log,updatelog to iredadmin;
sql> GRANT UPDATE,USAGE,SELECT ON log_id_seq TO iredadmin;

Configure iRedAdmin

The major config file of iRedAdmin is file /srv/www/iredadmin/settings.ini.

  • Copy example config file, and set correct file permission.
Terminal:
# cd /srv/www/iredadmin/
# cp settings.ini.pgsql.sample settings.ini
# chown iredadmin:iredadmin settings.ini
# chmod 0400 settings.ini


NOTE: If you are installing iRedAdmin-Pro, and have iRedAdmin open source edition installed, you can simply copy settings.ini from open source edition. Don't forget to set correct file owner and permission after copied.


  • Edit settings.ini.
