Need help with Roundcube configuration error

Post by kidgrave »

So I went to the login page of Roundcube (mywebsite.com/webmail and I was met with this error:

CONFIGURATION ERROR

defaults.inc.php was not found.
Please read the INSTALL instructions!

I tried to chmod the config.inc.php to 644 by doing in the terminal chmod 644 config.inc.php

But now I get an error that reads this:

Unable to connect to the database!
Please contact your server-administrator.

How can I fix this? Thanks.

So I read this post:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=37

And I realized that I have to access Roundcube by going to https://your-hostname/phpmyadmin/

But because in the terminal I typed chmod 644 config.inc.php I am not able to send and receive e-mails.

So what exact commands do I type on the terminal to fix the config.inc.php file? Thanks.

So I set the permissions of the configuration file to 0644. Now I am able to send e-mails to other Roundcube accounts. But I am not able to send e-mails to Gmail or Hotmail. How can I fix that? I would actually like to re-install Roundcube mail to see if that fixes all the problems I am having. Please let me know how. Thanks.
