I'm running CentOS 7

with

roundcubemail.noarch               1.1.12-2.el7                      @epel

I recently upgraded php from 5.6 to 7.2, which apparently broke my Roundcube implementation.

What is the easiest way to fix this?   The only note I get in my http log files is this:

[php7:warn] [pid 62443] [client xxxx:64458] PHP Warning:  Declaration of rcmail::get_instance($env = '') should be com
patible with rcube::get_instance($mode = 0, $env = '') in /usr/share/roundcubemail/program/include/rcmail.php on line 30, referer: xxxx

Any help would be most appreciated!

you need to update your version of roundcube. 1.1 is currently in LTS and does not support PHP7. PHP7 compatibility was added in 1.2

Where are there instructions on how to update this?    When I run yum update, it says it's up to date.

I think you'd have to ask in the Centos community about if there is a more upto date package available. There are no offical roundcube packages for any OS, the package you are using is likely maintained by someone in the Centos community. If there isn't a more recent package available you might consider installing Roundcube yourself, you can find some information on that here: https://github.com/roundcube/roundcubemail/wiki/Installation

What is the better choice?    Installing manually or using a package manager?

Anybody else here use CentOS?   Have some recommendations?

If I manually install, do I have to completely wipe the existing install?

Here's my current setup...   I installed roundcube from the epel repository but I am using the remi-php72 repository to update to php72 - I wonder if there is an alternate repository that has a compatible version of roundcube on it?

Version     : 1.1.12
Release     : 2.el7
Size        : 12 M
Repo        : installed
From repo   : epel

I haven't seen any continuously updated/maintained Roundcube packages for any distro. I would highly recommend installing Roundcube manually instead.

Thanks.    I decided to bite the bullet and do a fresh install.

Let me ask you guys... what are the proper/minimum/necessary file ownership/permissions for the roundcube installation?

The CentOS script set temp and logs to 777, which to me seems a bit liberal.   I have them owned by the web server user with write permissions on user only and that appears to be ok.

Is there any reason to create a unique user/group for roundcube?

As long as the webserver user has write permission to the logs and temp dirs and the files in those dirs then you should be fine.
