roundcube mail httpd conf denies access to all except localhost
Last modified: 2013-11-06 14:44:37 EST
Description of problem:
in /etc/httpd/conf.d/roundcubemail.conf there is a stanza that denies access to all except localhost.
that kind of defeats the purpose of having web mail. on localhost we can read mail with mail or mutt or alpine or read the actual mail file in /var/mail etc etc etc.
web mail on the other hand is meant for the web, the cloud so to speak but limiting it to only localhost defeats its purpose.
pls. remove this stanza
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is by design, so that simply installing the software doesn't expose it to the public network. This is a common web application packaging practice. Commenting out this stanza can be done at any time by the administrator, once other configuration is complete.
