Ralf,

Can eGroupware be installed on a web server that doesn't

have access to any folders outside the web server's root

directory? With my current hosting provider I don't have

access to anything outside my document root folder.

Ralf,


You are correct in that Pear is installed, but the

HTTP_WebDav_Server is not installed. I copied the egw-pear

package (from your site) up to my hosting server, but I

don't know if I have to do anything else. When I run the

check_install it sees that Pear is installed, but it doesn't see

the WebDav_Server.
Are there some parameters I

need to set some where that will help the program see it is

installed or do I need to put the egw-ear in a specific

directory?

Only thing you need it a basic Pear installation, many webhoster already install it. Our installation check, should be able to find it. The HTTP_WebDAV_Server package is supplied with our egw_pear package, and does not need to be installed separate. For installation of Pear refer to http://pear.php.net/manual/en/installation.php

The problem I'm having is that the application requires the

HTTP_WebDAV_Server and says I can install it by

running some PEAR command, but I don't have access to

OS to be able to run the command. Is there another way I

can get the WebDAV_Server installed?

Re: ugh
Hi,

we dont have documentation in doc or pdf format.

Our wiki (documentation link on http://egroupware.org) has a manual (http://egroupware.org/wiki/manual) which also contains information about installing eGW (http://egroupware.org/wiki/manualSetup). Anyway installation is really easy, just unpack eGW somewhere in the docroot of your webserver and call the corresponding URL in a browser.

eGroupWare is big web-server application. Compared to similar applications, it's pretty easy to install - though it still needs some knowledge about the webserver the the OS you install on.

The forum you talk about is for good reason only in contrib, which means it's none of the applications supported by the project.

I know we have excelent free support via our forums and mailing lists.
