  1. (OPTIONAL IF ABOVE DOESN'T WORK!) Go to PHPmyAdmin and execute the following MySQL-query on your ispconfig database. Don't forget to edit the remote username in the query.

$ UPDATE remote_user SET remote_functions = 'mail_domain_get,mail_domain_add,mail_domain_update,mail_domain_delete;mail_user_get,mail_user_add,mail_user_update,mail_user_delete;mail_alias_get,mail_alias_add,mail_alias_update,mail_alias_delete;mail_forward_get,mail_forward_add,mail_forward_update,mail_forward_delete;mail_spamfilter_whitelist_get,mail_spamfilter_whitelist_add,mail_spamfilter_whitelist_update,mail_spamfilter_whitelist_delete;mail_spamfilter_blacklist_get,mail_spamfilter_blacklist_add,mail_spamfilter_blacklist_update,mail_spamfilter_blacklist_delete;mail_spamfilter_user_get,mail_spamfilter_user_add,mail_spamfilter_user_update,mail_spamfilter_user_delete;mail_policy_get,mail_policy_add,mail_policy_update,mail_policy_delete;mail_fetchmail_get,mail_fetchmail_add,mail_fetchmail_update,mail_fetchmail_delete;mail_user_filter_get,mail_user_filter_add,mail_user_filter_update,mail_user_filter_delete;client_get,client_get_id,client_add,client_update,client_delete;server_get' WHERE remote_user.remote_username = '<>' LIMIT 1 ;

Note! that the SVN version is the most up-to-date version of the plugins and should at any time be preferred over the archived form. Old (archived) versions which are online can harm or misconfigure your system and are NOT supported!

  1. Installing Make sure you are in the plugins directory of your SquirrelMail installation

$ cd plugins

Get the code.

$ svn co ispconfig3

Check that the the ispconfig3 directory is created and set the ownership permissions to your web server user

$ ls $ chown -R <>:<> ispconfig3 $ cd ispconfig3

  1. Updating Make sure you are in the ispconfig3 plugin directory of your SquirrelMail installation

$ cd plugins/ispconfig3 $ svn up .

Copy the file config.php.dist to config.php.

$ cp config.php.dist config.php

Edit the file and ensure your remote user details are correct: $ispc_config['remote_soap_user'] = '<>'; $ispc_config['remote_soap_pass'] = '<>'; $ispc_config['soap_url'] = 'http://<>:8080/remote/';

Change the port (set to "8080" by default) if necessary and please note that when using SSL to access ISPconfig panel, use "https://" instead of "http://".

For example, if your username is "Santa", your password is "Claus", your server's domain is "" (Or you can use an IP), your ISPconfig panel is accessed through port 1111, and you are not using SSL, your configuration would be:

$ispc_config['remote_soap_user'] = 'Santa'; $ispc_config['remote_soap_pass'] = 'Claus'; $ispc_config['soap_url'] = '';

Any module that you want disabled can be remove from enabled_modules. For instance, if you do not wish to give the mail user the ability to change his or her's password you can omit "password" from $ispc_config['enable_modules']. It would then look like this:

$ispc_config['enable_modules'] = array('fetchmail', 'forwarding', 'autoreply', 'mailfilter', 'policy', 'wblist');

Enable the plugin in the SquirrelMail config file. Go to your config directory and run Choose option 8 and move the plugin from the "Available Plugins" category to the "Installed Plugins" category by entering the number next to ispconfig3. Save and exit.

$ cd ../../config/ $ ./

A new box should be available in the options page called 'Account'.
