For more information see http://www.group-office.com/.

With this RPM you can use GroupOffice on your SME 7.x (and above). You can install it as one single package in a very comfortable way. GroupOffice uses e-mail authentication which means that SME users can login to GroupOffice with their standard SME users and passwords.

Download

You can download this package at smeserver-groupoffice . If you would like to save it directly on your SME Server, you should give this command at a linux-prompt

wget http://mirror.contribs.org/smeserver/releases/7/smecontribs/i386/RPMS/smeserver-groupoffice-2.18.1-7.el4.sme.noarch.rpm

Installation

For installation just hit the following command

yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-groupoffice

After finishing the install process you can find groupoffice in the /opt/groupoffice directory.

Update/Upgrade

Please note that this RPM cannot upgrade GroupOffice 2.16.x and 2.17.x

A backup is done by the RPM before updating. All Files and MySQL DataBase are saved in /opt/GO_RPM_BACKUP

You must move the backup to a safe directory.

Uninstallation

For uninstall just hit the following command

yum remove smeserver-groupoffice

You can ignore the yum-comments signal event post-upgrade and signal-event reboot.

In the new release (2.18.1-x), if you want to completly remove GroupOffice from your server, you need the following command:

sh /root/GO-Full-Uninstall.sh

This will delete GroupOffice's installation files, MySQL DB and SME DB entries.

This automatic step is just for safety, make your own backup before updating/upgrading.

Use

Start your browser with the URL https://servername/groupoffice. You can see a check-box with entries for your domain and '@Group-Office database'. Because of e-mail authentication, GroupOffice can create users automatically. Every SME user can logon with a standard SME user + password.

To admin GroupOffice settings, logon to GroupOffice with 'administrator' with password = 'admin' and choose '@Group-Office database' from the check-box. This user 'administrator' is different from the SME user 'admin'. If GroupOffice has created a user 'admin' based on the SME admin, you can set him admin-rights if you want.


Warning.png Warning:
For security-reasons, change the password for the user 'administrator' after your first login !

Warning.png Warning:
Do not delete the default administrator account or modify it in any way. !

Adjusting accessibility

The default behaviour of GroupOffice is: accessible from LAN + Internet with "forced https" (SSL on + rewrite rule) You can easily change those defaults settings with following commands:

# config setprop groupoffice HTTPS on
# config setprop groupoffice HTTPS off
# config setprop groupoffice PublicAccess global
# config setprop groupoffice PublicAccess local

Once done, apply modifications and restart Apache:

# expand-template /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
# svc -h /service/httpd-e-smith

After install you will find FAQ and README in /opt/html/
