Thank you! This is perfect did you setup ldap to connect to postgres or just
setup the user sogo and sogo database?

Are the ldap schemes the ones from the sogo documentation if so then I
can complete this. I guess my question is do I need to install or setup
ldap to connect to postgres, courier or anything else outside of what is
inside of the sogo documentation?

And, has anyone setup ldap ssl on ubuntu 11.04 successfully ?

Hello Dell,

Yes, but those guides do not tell me how to install and setup
openldap/postgresql in detail.

- Setup of Postgres is usually not a problem for sogo, just install
the package of your OS distribution,
create the sogo user/db and then you are done
- Setup of a Ldap Server is somewhat a different matter, you have to
install the package too,
but then you have to add the required ldap schemas, add the entries
them self and finally also
secure your ldap directory.
This is advanced stuff...

Perhaps use the Zero Effort Groupware solution ?

You can also transfer that to real hardware (Also a advanced task :) )

i am following the sogo openchange documentation for the sogo
install. I am down to the sections that state postgresql and
openldap setups. What exactly am I am doing besides the based
apt-get install and confirming they are both running for sogo? Do I
configure postgresql to connect and run with sogo,virtual domains
Or, what exactly am I doing with this setup? And, then what am I
configuring specifically besides the standard empty setup for

PostGreSQL setup

OpenLDAP setup



you know this guides?





i used a wiki entry for setting up openldap on ubuntu. works just fine. if i
really need all the schemas they add in the wiki, i don't know.

i used this one:

sorry, its german.



in my ldap there are only the sogo users.

afaik sogo looks into ldap to find if the user is valid and the data is stored in the db, so there is no connection between ldap and the db.
