Installation and Upgrades / Re: Using Ebox as a LAMP server
« on: June 13, 2010, 05:24:38 pm »
Its about time i contributed something positive rather than just bugs and requests, so here goes:

A simple "How to" for using Ebox as a LAMP server with phpMyAdmin.
This has been tested on Ebox 1.3.15

  • ebox-webserver module must be installed and enabled

Install MySQL server:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
enter your password if prompted

Install phpMyAdmin
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
enter your password if prompted

thats it!

I've used Ubuntu for quite a while but I always learn something new.    If I want to install LAMP on an Ubuntu machine I've found the simplest way is to just use Synaptic package manager.

Click on SYSTEM
Click on EDIT

at this point you will be shown a List of about 30 predefined packages including:

DNS Server
LAMP Server
openSSH Server
Samba File Server
Print Server

Just select LAMP and click on APPLY just as you would any other application in Synaptic and it will install everything for  you.   

Nice part is all of the above are predefined and maintained in the Ubuntu repositories.

Installation and Upgrades / Re: eBox on Ubuntu 10.04
« on: June 01, 2010, 09:38:47 pm »
On Ubuntu 10.04 the repositories already have the following modules listed as installable:

  • ebox

I'm new to eBox so my question is this.

In all of the online documentation they talk about using the eBox Installer CD *and* that you would be presented with several eBox "role" choices.

The menu box/choices do NOT happen when installing from the repositories!

So my question is this...
Does anyone know which of the above modules are required to implement the equivalent of the eBox "Office" role?

I found in another post the following statement:

you may install those packages related to ebox-office profile if you don't want to use the console to do so. They are: ebox-antivirus, ebox-ebackup, ebox-egroupware, ebox-monitor, ebox-printers and ebox-samba.

However, the Ubuntu Repositories list none of those "names" except "ebox-samba" and "ebox-printers".

So I am assuming that the Ubuntu Repositories have modules names from a newer release of eBox than the online documentation ???

From the list of modules in the Ubuntu 10.04 repositories WHICH ones are required to make an "office" role equivalent.

Thanks in advance.

I'm trying to install eBox on Ubuntu 10.04 server and facing package problem:

I followed the installation like this:

  • Added the deb lucid main to /etc/apt/sources.list
  • Then updated the list like this apt-get update
  • Then used this line to install the package apt-get install ebox-infrastructure
  • I got this error in return Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package ebox-office

eBox is already listed in the Ubuntu Repositories so I don't think you need to add any PPA to install.   Just make sure you've enabled 3rd party repositories in Synaptic.

News and Announcements / Re: New 1.4-2 VM images uploaded!
« on: May 21, 2010, 03:24:44 pm »
Since BOTH Ubuntu and RedHat are now focused on KVM... could eBox look into adding KVM to vmware and virtualbox as a VM image available ?

Just to let you know that we have uploaded new versions of the Virtual Machine disk images for VirtualBox and VMware with the latest packages included in the 1.4-2 installer (a subset of them as usual).

You can download them and find more info at

If anyone can provide some outlook regarding this situation, please help.

Does anyone have a successful install of ebox 1.4 running under Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic?

If you do, can you provide some detail as to how you accomplished this please.

I downloaded ebox_installer-1.4.iso hoping to have an easy install but this is a live cd with eBox.

How should one install eBox only from this cd?

I'm just starting to look at eBox which sounds like what you are doing.

Here is a I am going to follow and see if I can get everything working.   Maybe it will give you some hints.

My environment will be several kvm VM's and 2-3 windows boxes (vista64 and win7).

I'm curious if I can get it all to work <g>
