Help with Horde webmail
I was wondering if anyone has successfully managed to install and run Horde on windows XP Pro.
I've been trying to install Horde onto my machine which i use as a Mail server. The Email Server i'm currently using is Merak Mail Server Lite. It's working perfectly. It's just the icewarp (web-mail interface)'s license going to be expired very very soon. In the mean time, i have to find other alternative to replace it. I come across some open source webmail like squirrelmail, Horde, Neomail. Horde really attracts me since it's got more features that i want. However, Horde is written in PHP and ideally designed for Linux platform. In saying that, it can also work on windows XP based on FAQ i saw on its website.
The problem i'm having now is don't know how to install it on my mail server machine since it runs on windows XP. I've had apache2 and PHP up and running on that machine. But I got stuck on the very first stage of the whole instruction procedure because the procedure is written for linux.
Here is part of the instruction guidelines from Horde that i managed to unzip as follows
1. Compiling PHP for Apache::
./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs \
--with-gettext --with-dom --with-mcrypt \
--with-iconv --enable-mbstring=all --enable-mbregex \
--with-gd --with-png-dir=/usr --with-jpeg-dir=/usr \
2. Restart Apache.
I'm not sure if i need to configure my PHP for Apache especially it's already working on apache2
3. Install PEAR packages::
pear install -o Log Mail Mail_Mime DB Date File
pear -d preferred_state=beta install -a Services_Weather
Does PEAR not come together with PHP?
Thank you in advance and look forward to hearing from you.
