Installation Issues
« on: March 05, 2016, 06:07:50 PM »
Hey all,

I am trying to install roundcube on my linode server.

I followed the instructions found here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Roundcube

No errors or anything, but when I go to the roundcube url, it tried to download the script.

http://webnerddesigns.com/roundcube

I'm at a loss as to what the problem could be.

First I have to recommend installing Roundcube directly from the packages published on the Roundcube site https://roundcube.net/download/ rather then installing from the Ubuntu package repository since the Ubuntu package is Roundcube 0.9.5 which was released October 21, 2013 and is no longer supported. Often the packages also have other problems because they try to link to incorrect versions of Roundcube dependencies.

Now on to the problem your experiencing, do you have PHP installed?

Make sure you have the following somewhere in your Apache config and make sure it isn't being overwritten somewhere like in a .htaccess file.
Code: [Select]
AddType  application/x-httpd-php         .php

Not sure were I'm looking.

I recently switched to Linode and I'm getting used to not having cPanels and such.

Maybe you should read though this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18422140/apache-is-downloading-php-files-instead-of-displaying-them Its a Apache config problem not a Roundcube problem so you may not get the best answers here.
