* Configure Roundcube for password change <2011-11-22 tis>
+ From phone call with Stefan. Appache is configured differently and better on zetkin. There is one file per host which is better then having all host's configurations in one file. However, the Roundcube installation is older on zetkin, so ti could be wise to update with backports.
<2011-11-22 tis> [[http://www.roundcube.net/][Official website]]. The plugin of interest is [[http://trac.roundcube.net/browser/trunk/plugins/password][passord]] found from [[http://trac.roundcube.net/wiki/Plugin_Repository][Pugin Repository]].
<2011-11-24 tor> Found the Roundcube directory: /var/lib/roundcube/. The configuration files are in /etc/roudcube/. Also the relevant Apache2 configuration files are linked into /etc/roundcube/. Plugins are placed in /var/lib/rouncube/plugins/ and installed by editing /etc/roundcube/main.inc.php/. It took a while to figure Apache out enough to find the directories. Roudcube is not really a program; it is just some PHP script.

It appears that some plugins comes with the installation. See [[http://www.roundcubeforum.net/3-news-announcements/12-general-discussion/5258-plugin-download-link.html][This post]].
- Finally the plugin is installed; I requested the full stable 0.6-version sources to my home directory and copied the plugin files into /var/lib/roundcube/plugin. Next step will be to identify how to establish a connection with the IMAP (daabase) server.

+ <2011-12-06 tis> This is hard. It is not MySQL's MD5 algorithm that is used. The check sum is probably of base 64 and not hexadecimal (from Password.pm). Can this be a plan:
+ - Reproduce the fripost-passwd perl script to realise what is happening.
+ - Confirm how the connection is established between roundcube and imap.fripost.org

+ The command /grant/ gives /roundcube/ privileges to select and update table /mailbox/. There is no possibility to give privileges to just update certain columns in a table. If that is sought for a separate table has to be created.
+ - create an SQL-script that tests all privileges, and try it on /roundcube@localhost/ and /roundcube@%/.
+ - create that user on /antilop/
