Test Config and Mimetype
« on: June 10, 2014, 04:33:01 PM »
Hello,

I am trying to install Roundcube 1.0.1 for the first time.  I've installed all prerequisites, set up the application to communicate with a postgreSQL DB... all is showing green and "OK" in the web installer.

All except for "Mimetype to file extension mapping." This shows "NOT OK."  Here is what I've tried:

  • Verified that /etc/mime.types exists on my system (CentOS 6) and is referenced in the Apache configuration.
  • Tried to set $config['mime_types'] in config/defaults.inc.php to '/etc/mime.types' as that was null.  Did nothing.
  • Tried to add $config['mime_types'] to config/config.inc.php, setting it to the file in /etc... no luck

I just don't understand what the installer wants me to do here.  To the best of my (limited) knowledge I have an /etc/mime.types file that Apache sees just fine.

Any help would be appreciated, it is the last "red mark" I need to resolve for a clean install.

Regards,
Tom

All,

I figured it out so am posting it here in case someone else runs into this.  I ended up defining the variable in config.inc.php as follows:

$config['mime_types'] = '/srv/#####.com/webmail/config/mime.types';

Looks like:

  • Overriding the null in defaults.inc.php doesn't seem to work.
  • /etc/mime.types was likely not working because it was not in the document root

So, in the end I just downloaded the mime.types from the subversion site, and I have a green "OK."  Unsure if this is a bug, or just sort of clunky, but for a new user to the software... it makes for a very confusing install.

Regards,
Tom

It's a problem with the permissions of the web server, its unable to access the file outside of the web server root.
