Hi Ralph,

I would love to write some guides but I just don't have the time at the
moment (work commitments), but for those that would like the scripts and
maybe write up some guides, you can download them from:


This has been tested on a fresh install of CentOS 6.3 x64 minimal.

Run the prerequisites.sh file (eg. sh prerequisites.sh) first just to make
sure you have wget.  Then run run.sh.  You can see inside run.sh what it
sets up.  I have also made every file independent if you'd like to just
install a particular feature.

In the archive are also 3 files named newemail.sh, newwebsite.sh and
newftpuser.sh to get you started post install.

When I get more time, I will be happy to write up some guides.

Kind regards,
Christian Salway

Hmmm. No. That is not really what we are looking for (although it sounds
interesting). We're looking for documentation which enables the reader to
*learn* and then implement things himself. Okay, if there is some copy &
paste, there's nothing wrong with that :)

But we don't want to supply shell scripts which are opaque to the causal
user and then do something he cannot reproduce (or understand with his level
of knowledge).

If you can add to various parts of the wiki which already describe mail
- or create new pages on things which aren't already covered - then that
would be great.
