What am I doing wrong
« on: February 20, 2007, 05:25:27 PM »

I've installed this as per the instructions on the Wiki, which may I say were a little too basic even for me, but I've go it to the point where I can goto the index page without errors and I get a login prompt, which is nice. However how am I supposed to login exactly? no users have been created yet and other than guessing what needs to be entered manually in phpmyadmin, I don't see a way of doing so...

I think I know some of the questions your going to ask so I'll try to answer them before:

What database am I using? MySQL 5.0.24a
What about php? php 5.12

Is my Database user all permissionised?
Yup, full access

is $rcmail_config['auto_create_user'] = TRUE;? - Yes

have I imported mysql5.initial.sql into the database? - Yes

Could someone give me some clue as to what exactly I'm doing wrong?

Not sure how helpful this will be but...........

I setup my users by going to my webserver cpanel and creating mailbox accounts there. Your situation may be different, but the way my roundcube works is that it simply connects to my IMAP mail server but does not control the user accounts.

If you have a web cpanel for your webserver, try creating an email mailbox on there, and then logging in with that username and password. Most webmail logins are in the format:

password: whatever you created

If you dont' have a web cpanel to create email accounts, someone else will have to give you tips. You will need to know what mail server program that you are using.

Hope this helps.
