Hello,

I have installed the vacation plugin for Roundcube.  The tab shows up like it should.  When I click on it, I get an error:

CONFIGURATION ERROR

Vacation plugin: Cannot connect to the FTP-server 'GEMLIN0000'
Please read the INSTALL instructions!

GEMLIN000 is the actual name of the server.

I have ProFTPD installed.

My config.ini file:

[default]
driver = "ftp"
subject = "Default subject"
body = "default.txt"


[dotforward]
binary = "/usr/bin/vacation"
flags = ""
message = ".vacation.msg"
database = ".vacation.db"
alias_identities = true
set_envelop_sender = false
always_keep_message = true

The path to the plugin is: /var/lib/roundcube/plugins/vacation

Please advise.

Have a great day,

Don

A specific plugin for a specific webmail software is likely too narrow of a topic to get a lot of responses. This is more of a support question for the author of that plugin.

As for me, the only high-level advice I can offer is:

1. DNS - Make sure that the server that is hosting your Roundcube install has the ability to translate "GEMLIN0000" into an IP address. You can use PHP's gethostbyname() function to give it a test:
http://php.net/manual/en/function.gethostbyname.php
<?php 
error_reporting(E_ALL);
echo gethostbyname("GEMLIN0000"); 
?>

Open in new window


2. Requirements - Make sure that you have any required extensions installed. If it's using the standard FTP extension for PHP, then you'll need to make sure that extension was enabled:
<?php 
error_reporting(E_ALL);
echo (function_exists("ftp_connect") ? "FTP enabled" : "FTP disabled");
?>

Open in new window



3. Passive FTP - If the FTP connection is going through a firewall, try enabling passive FTP.

This would be a PHP script. You would just create a new text file like mytest.php and put in those tests, save it on the same server that contains Roundcube, and then view it from your browser to see the results.
