How do I create email addresses in Roundcube?
« on: November 25, 2017, 08:53:36 PM »
I did nothing but more than follow the tutorial here (https://www.linuxbabe.com/mail-server/install-roundcube-webmail-ubuntu-16-04-nginx-mariadb-php7) and I can successfully access to my webmail URL.

However, the issue is that I have no idea what are the admin credentials to login to my Roundcube webmail. It is the first time ever I use Roundcube, after switching from Squirrelmail. I am using a self-managed VPS and I have spent average 3 hours during the setup process.

I have successfully supplied a valid database credentials and 'finished' the installation process by visiting http://ip/install/. Why the quotes? Because I can't login to my Roundcube admin page to administer and add new email addresses.

Therefore, can you please explain to me what I have to do? I have looked around for continuous hours and I don't really know what to do.

PS: In Squirrelmail I used adduser and passwd commands in Shell to create the admin users, but I'm not sure if it's the same for Roundcube or I am wrong? Will they have full admin access? I am not using shared / hosting. I am using a Virtual Private Server.

Roundcube is an IMAP client. You do not manage users via it. There is no admin user or admin panel. You need to create your users on the IMAP server that Roundcube is configured to connect to and then login using those creds to login to Roundcube.
Roundcube Plugins: Contextmenu, SpamAssassin Prefs, and moreā€¦
