Hi Guys,

I have prepared a draft of the deployment of Carbonio CE 23.12.0 workstream collaboration in step by step format. BTW all the information is available in the documentation (docs.zextras.com); I just summed it up for you.

For Ubuntu 20.04LTS/22.04LTS - Single Server

Simplified version of steps:

[Always check with official documentation for updated information]

A surprise lurks within the post. 😊

 

1. Preparing the server
[Add Zextras repository using this link ( https://zextras.com/carbonio-community-edition#discoverproduct ) and form ]

Set hostname
Set hosts
Set time-zone
reboot

2. Configure PostgreSQL-12 [[On Ubuntu 20.04LTS]]

apt install postgresql-12 -y

read -s -p "Password:" DB_ADM_PWD
su - postgres -c "psql --command=\"CREATE ROLE carbonio_adm WITH LOGIN SUPERUSER encrypted password '$DB_ADM_PWD';\""
su - postgres -c "psql --command=\"CREATE DATABASE carbonio_adm owner carbonio_adm;\""
systemctl restart postgresql

[Check this link - https://docs.zextras.com/carbonio-ce/html/install/scenarios/single-server-scenario.html#preliminary-task ]

 

If you want to install postgresql-16, then follow : [On Ubuntu 22.04LTS]

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb  https://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt  $(lsb_release -cs)-pgdg main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list"
wget --quiet -O -  https://www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc  | sudo apt-key add -
apt clean all
apt update

apt install -y postgresql-16
read -s -p "Password:" DB_ADM_PWD
su - postgres -c "psql --command=\"CREATE ROLE carbonio_adm WITH LOGIN SUPERUSER encrypted password '$DB_ADM_PWD';\""
su - postgres -c "psql --command=\"CREATE DATABASE carbonio_adm owner carbonio_adm;\""
systemctl restart postgresql

 

3. Install Carbonio CE Packages:

apt install service-discover-server \
carbonio-directory-server \
carbonio-files-db carbonio-mailbox-db \ 
carbonio-docs-connector-db carbonio-tasks-db \
carbonio-proxy carbonio-webui carbonio-files-ui \
carbonio-tasks-ui carbonio-files-public-folder-ui \
carbonio-user-management carbonio-mta \
carbonio-appserver carbonio-storages-ce \
carbonio-files-ce carbonio-preview-ce \
carbonio-docs-connector-ce carbonio-tasks-ce \
carbonio-docs-editor carbonio-prometheus -y

4. Mandatory steps:

carbonio-bootstrap
service-discover setup-wizard
pending-setups -a

5. Bootstrapping installed Files and Tasks DB

PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-files-db-bootstrap carbonio_adm 127.0.0.1
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-tasks-db-bootstrap carbonio_adm 127.0.0.1

Workstream Collaboration Packages Setup:

6. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-message-dispatcher-db)

[Save the same DB value once more]
read -s -p "Password:" DB_ADM_PWD

apt install carbonio-message-dispatcher-db -y
pending-setups -a
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-message-dispatcher-db-bootstrap carbonio_adm 127.0.0.1

7. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-message-dispatcher)

[Save the same DB value once more]
read -s -p "Password:" DB_ADM_PWD

apt install carbonio-message-dispatcher -y
pending-setups -a
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-message-dispatcher-migration carbonio_adm 127.78.0.10 20000

 Sometimes this step produces errors, then do followings and try again:
1. systemctl restart service-discover
2. systemctl restart postgresql@16-main.service
3. use the actual password instead of $DB_ADM_PWD

8. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-message-broker)

apt install carbonio-message-broker -y
pending-setups -a

9. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-ws-collaboration-db)

apt install carbonio-ws-collaboration-db -y
pending-setups -a
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-ws-collaboration-db-bootstrap carbonio_adm 127.0.0.1

Now you can remove the value set in the variable as DB password:

unset DB_ADM_PWD

10. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-ws-collaboration-ce)

apt install carbonio-ws-collaboration-ce -y
pending-setups -a

11. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-videoserver-ce)

apt install carbonio-videoserver-ce -y
pending-setups -a

12. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-ws-collaboration-ui)

apt install carbonio-ws-collaboration-ui -y
su - zextras -c "carbonio prov mc default carbonioFeatureChatsEnabled TRUE"

13. Change the password of the admin user:

14. Restart Services:

systemctl enable carbonio-tasks
systemctl restart carbonio-tasks

systemctl enable carbonio-videoserver
systemctl restart carbonio-videoserver

systemctl restart carbonio-prometheus-nginx-exporter.service

su - zextras -c "zmcontrol restart"

15. Check status of services:

su - zextras -c "zmcontrol -v"
su - zextras -c "zmcontrol status"
systemctl list-units carbonio*

16. Additional recommendation: (Modify MTA Trusted Network)

su - zextras -c "carbonio prov ms $(hostname -f) zimbraMtaMyNetworks '127.0.0.0/8 $(hostname -i)/32'"
su - zextras -c "zmmtactl restart"

17. Restart the server and restart mentioned services as per the order shown below:

reboot now

systemctl restart carbonio-tasks
systemctl restart carbonio-message-broker
systemctl restart carbonio-videoserver
systemctl restart carbonio-ws-collaboration
systemctl restart carbonio-prometheus-nginx-exporter.service

After spending the day testing and testing and testing I can now say that it works but requires some care on the steps above and some extra ones to make also Meeting work properly. I'll let the why to devs to answer, all I can tell you is how to make it work.

carbonio-message-dispatcher-migration

This one is the tricky one. If it fails you must wait like 5 minutes and try again. There is something running in background that takes that time to be done and allow it to run successfully.

So, insist running it till it works:

PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-message-dispatcher-migration carbonio_adm 127.78.0.10 20000

Once that one is done follow all the rest of the tutorial above. It will work.

Meeting

This is just an awesome feature that is just there and doesn't work out of the box, but just because you need to do two minor setups. Credits to Elio Junior from Brazil for figure this out, TYVM!. So...

1 - Edit /etc/janus/janus.jcfg file, look for nat_1_1_mapping and change it with your external IP;

2 - You must allow or redirect all range of ports 20000-40000 on UDP protocol on your Firewall.

Ending

Reboot the whole server... and when it's back, when all services are up and running... restart this services:

systemctl enable carbonio-tasks
systemctl enable carbonio-videoserver
systemctl restart carbonio-prometheus-nginx-exporter

Wait another minute or two and give it a try.

Hi Guys,

I have prepared a draft of the deployment of Carbonio CE 23.12.0 workstream collaboration in step by step format. BTW all the information is available in the documentation (docs.zextras.com); I just summed it up for you.

For RHEL8 - Single Server

Simplified version of steps:

[Always check with official documentation for updated information]

 

1. Preparing the server
[Add Zextras repository using this link (  https://zextras.com/carbonio-community-edition#discoverproduct  ) and form ]

 

Set hostname

Set hosts

Set timezone

 

2. Disable SELinux and Firewall. Later at the end of this installation process, you can enable firewall ports based on their role and description mentioned here. Reboot your server after disabling SELinux.

 

3. Configure RHEL subscription to enable relevant repositories. In this release, you need to configure EPEL repositories to configure workstream collaboration related packages and their dependencies.

[EPEL Repo Configuration]
subscription-manager repos --enable codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-$(arch)-rpms
sudo yum -y install  https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm 

yum clean all
yum repolist

 

4. Download and configure Zextras repository using this link (  https://zextras.com/carbonio-community-edition#discoverproduct  ) and form. Then clean, update and upgrade existing repos and packages.

dnf clean all
dnf update -y && dnf upgrade -y

 

5. PostgreSQL Configuration

yum -y install  https://download.postgresql.org/pub/repos/yum/reporpms/EL-8-x86_64/pgdg-redhat-repo-latest.noarch.rpm 
dnf -qy module disable postgresql
dnf -y install postgresql12 postgresql12-server
/usr/pgsql-12/bin/postgresql-12-setup initdb
systemctl enable --now postgresql-12

To configure PostgreSQL, edit file

Check out this link, to get the details.

vi /var/lib/pgsql/12/data/pg_hba.conf

find the line:

#IPv4 local connections:
host    all             all             127.0.0.1/32            ident

remove the # before host (if present) and change it as follows:

#IPv4 local connections:
host    all             all             127.0.0.1/32            md5

Finally, reload the PostgreSQL

systemctl reload postgresql-12

 

6. Create PostgreSQL ROLE and DATABASE

read -s -p "Password:" DB_ADM_PWD

su - postgres -c "psql --command=\"CREATE ROLE carbonio_adm WITH LOGIN SUPERUSER encrypted password '$DB_ADM_PWD';\""
su - postgres -c "psql --command=\"CREATE DATABASE carbonio_adm owner carbonio_adm;\""

 

7. Install Packages

dnf install service-discover-server carbonio-directory-server \
carbonio-files-db carbonio-mailbox-db carbonio-docs-connector-db carbonio-tasks-db \
carbonio-proxy carbonio-webui carbonio-files-ui carbonio-tasks-ui carbonio-files-public-folder-ui \
carbonio-user-management carbonio-mta \
carbonio-appserver carbonio-storages-ce carbonio-files-ce carbonio-preview-ce carbonio-docs-connector-ce carbonio-tasks-ce \
carbonio-docs-editor carbonio-prometheus

 

8. Mandatory steps:

carbonio-bootstrap
service-discover setup-wizard
pending-setups -a

 

9. Bootstrapping installed Files and Tasks DB

PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-files-db-bootstrap carbonio_adm 127.0.0.1
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-tasks-db-bootstrap carbonio_adm 127.0.0.1

 

Workstream Collaboration Packages Setup:

10. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-message-dispatcher-db)

[Save the same DB value once more]
read -s -p "Password:" DB_ADM_PWD

dnf install carbonio-message-dispatcher-db -y
pending-setups -a
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-message-dispatcher-db-bootstrap carbonio_adm 127.0.0.1

 

11. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-message-dispatcher)

dnf install carbonio-message-dispatcher -y
pending-setups -a
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-message-dispatcher-migration carbonio_adm 127.78.0.10 20000

 

12. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-message-broker)

dnf install carbonio-message-broker -y
pending-setups -a

 

13. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-ws-collaboration-db)

dnf install carbonio-ws-collaboration-db -y
pending-setups -a
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-ws-collaboration-db-bootstrap carbonio_adm 127.0.0.1

Now you can remove the value set in the variable as DB password:

unset DB_ADM_PWD

 

14. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-ws-collaboration-ce)

dnf install carbonio-ws-collaboration-ce -y
pending-setups -a

 

15. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-videoserver-ce)

pending-setups -a

 

16. Install workstream collaboration package (carbonio-ws-collaboration-ui)

dnf install carbonio-ws-collaboration-ui -y
su - zextras -c "carbonio prov mc default carbonioFeatureChatsEnabled TRUE"

 

17. Change the password of the admin user:

 

18. Restart Services:

systemctl enable carbonio-tasks
systemctl restart carbonio-tasks

systemctl enable carbonio-videoserver
systemctl restart carbonio-videoserver

systemctl restart carbonio-prometheus-nginx-exporter.service

su - zextras -c "zmcontrol restart"

 

19. Check status of services:

su - zextras -c "zmcontrol -v"
su - zextras -c "zmcontrol status"
systemctl list-units carbonio*

 

20. Additional recommendation: (Modify MTA Trusted Network)

su - zextras -c "carbonio prov ms $(hostname -f) zimbraMtaMyNetworks '127.0.0.0/8 $(hostname -i)/32'"
su - zextras -c "zmmtactl restart"

 

21. Restart the server and restart mentioned services as per the order shown below:

reboot now

systemctl restart carbonio-tasks
systemctl restart carbonio-message-broker
systemctl restart carbonio-videoserver
systemctl restart carbonio-ws-collaboration
systemctl restart carbonio-prometheus-nginx-exporter.service

 

And that's it !

Thank you dear for this installation walkthrough, please correct 'apt' to 'dnf' for RHEL installation, furthermore please indicate optional modules (can skip if modules not required like chat and video)

@hunaidharoon 

Hi,

Thank you for pointing out the corrections. I have changed all of them.

If you skip Step-10 to 16, you will not have the workstream collaboration-related packages. So, without step-10 to 16 an account would have the mentioned features:

  • Email
  • Contacts
  • Calendar
  • Files
  • Tasks
  • Search
  • Settings

I hope this helps.

Have a great day!

Regards,

Sharif

@gagie Rocky Linux is not officially supported.... I'll suggest you to use Ubuntu 20.04... it's working perfectly =)

Hello, thanks for the installer post.

I've got this error, but i can't find the file in github:

At your point "7"

apt install carbonio-message-dispatcher -y
pending-setups -a
PGPASSWORD=$DB_ADM_PWD carbonio-message-dispatcher-migration carbonio_adm 127.78.0.10 20000

Last command, the result was:

Cannot run script file '/etc/carbonio/message-dispatcher/sql-scripts/migrations//6.0.0.sql'

You need to add a CR at the end of the file 6.0.0.sql, then it works

 

Thanks

 

Marco
