How to Be on the "Bleeding Edge"
« on: June 27, 2006, 02:09:21 AM »
A simple, quick way to be on the "bleeding edge"

1. Download and install a SVN client. (I use TortoiseSVN located here: http://tortoisesvn.sourceforge.net/)
2. After install is complete, create a new folder somewhere to download the roundcube files to.
3. Right click on the newly created folder and there should be an option that says SVN Checkout. Choose that.
4. A window should popup called TortoiseSVN: Checkout. In the window where it says URL of repository enter this:
Code: [Select]
https://svn.roundcube.net/trunkI left everything else as default.
5. Click okay and it should begin transferring. Click Ok when it completes and you now have the latest available copy.

To update your copy of roundcube, right click on the folder (now it should have a green check mark on the folder icon) and select SVN update. It will the proceed to update your copy.

Experts at this kind of stuff: feel free to flame on and correct me :D

hi,

i recently installed roundcube via svn by just following the howto by fak3r, however i'm afraid to update my copy of roundcube coz i'm afraid to mess up my webmailserver which is already on production use and i basically don't know how to update it via the svn command line. your svn client of choice i think will not work for me coz my ssh server doesn't allow root login :-[. can you or anybody kind enough to give me a step by step on how to update it via svn command line :-[.

TIA

Well, the best way I think is to use the SVN Snapshots I publish every few days here on the forum. They are briefly tested and tell you what has changed compared to the earlier SVN Versions.
Another advantage is, that they are only half as big as the checked out SVN version.

So take a look at this: http://roundcubeforum.net/index.php?topic=23.0

i apologized for these newbie question, but how do i install that snapshot you've mentioned to my rouncube version which i think is version 260? i've downloaded it and it is a tar.gz file. my roundcube dir is /usr/local/www/apache/data/roundcube. how will i install that file to my roundcube assuming that i have already untarred the file to my home dir.

thanks

Well with this release you can simply backup your config file, and then delete your old installation. Then you upload the content of roundcubemail to a fresh directory called roundcube in /usr/local/www/apache/data.
Then just chmod the temp and log folder to 777 and repaste your config files.
Done.

Note: I will post a warning if you can not use the old config files anymore as some values may have changed.

Thank you for this howto. It is short and works fine!

Maybe one addition: How can I tar/gzip the file myself when I extract the latest version to a windows box (and hence use all chmod settings)?

You want to create a tarball or extract a tarball?

I know how to do that regularly - only things is that I am working on a windows box and have tortoisesvn running there. It does not inheret the file rights (I think). How can I download latest version and tarball (maintaining chmod setting).
